A collection of our work in various genres.
An anagram of our names, Tamale Jar Productions is a team effort of Amar and Tejal Shah. We work together and individually on a variety of projects and platforms. We’ve created and produced award-winning content for networks like ESPN, Fox Sports, Spike, Tru TV and Syfy. Also, we're the executive producers and creators of the film festival favorite SAG short Sati Shaves Her Head, starring Hannah Simone from Fox's hit show New Girl and Sonal Shah from Scrubs.
We approach each project with imaginative brio, ferocious drive and consummate professionalism. With artistic taste and commercial sensibility, we bring spicy storytelling and visual masala to all our work.
I bring creative visions to life. I’ve worked in Bollywood in front of the camera and now in Hollywood behind it. With a background in narrative, non-fiction and lifestyle programming I’ve produced for shows and created pitches and content for companies ranging from Disney, truTV, NFL, Syfy and more.
I have produced and directed a number of sizzle reels for companies like Octagon Entertainment, Momentum, Juma Entertainment and pitched to networks like Bravo, Tru TV, HGTV, Lifetime, E! to name a few. I’ve also directed major television actors in my short “Sati Shaves Her Head” starring Hannah Simone from Fox’s “New Girl” and Sonal Shah from “Scrubs.”
Prior to moving to the United States, I worked as a leading actress in Indian television. I’ve clocked over 500 episodes on air. This experience gives me a unique international perspective regarding each side of filmmaking.
My goal is to make sure that as we grow, we drive efficient client executions while always, always pushing creativity
