DON BEEBE:  Don Beebe's life story is a combination of the blockbuster movies “Rudy,” “Hoosiers” and “The Rookie.”  Like “Rudy”, Beebe was overlooked by major colleges because he was too small and an unknown. Like the athletes in “Hoosiers”, he played high school ball at a small Midwest school surrounded by farmland and sports dreams that seldom came true. And like “The Rookie”, he was completely out of sports for years; in his case, working construction before making a comeback in one of the most amazing journeys ever witnessed in the NFL. Beebe went on to play in six Super Bowls, including Super Bowl XXXI that he and the Green Bay Packers won. Don is a very well known and requested Motivational Speaker who's often used for commercial and endorsement ventures.








Nathan DiGesare:  At the young age of only 5, it was apparent that Nathan's talents far surpassed those of other children his age.  In his freshmen year at high school, Nathan began piano lessons with Stanley Hummel who was a resident teacher at the renowned Juilliard School of Music. On February 1, 1974 Nathan made his first professional appearance as a performer at the Union College in Schenectady, New York. Nathan continued his education in music at the Indiana University School of Music and the Juilliard School of Music.

After leaving New York in 1978, Nathan was invited by a close friend in the music business to come to Nashville, TN. Nathan’s work as a musician earned distinction and popularity within the Nashville Contemporary Christian music scene almost immediately upon his arrival. From 1983 on, he has performed his own piano solo concerts around the world. Nathan met his wife Laurie during this time and toured together. As Nathan and Laurie began a family, Nathan created a vision to own and operate an entertainment entity – Scrimshaw Sound Productions, which has successfully begun branding its name and sound throughout the music industry. Nathan has written songs and produced records in various musical genres. Performing, writing, arranging and producing music for major recording artists and labels earned his solid reputation and noteworthy success. 

In 1994 Nathan was offered an A&R position at a major record label. He met Keith Diamond, writer/producer ( Billy Ocean, Michael Bolton, Donna Summer, Rod Stewart, Sheena Easton). Immediately the two not only bonded musically, but developed a great friendship. This was a pivotal point in Nathan's career for mainstream pop. It was through Keith, that Nathan met the late Donna Summer and her husband Bruce Sudano. Nathan became a Producer, arranger and musician with Donna, and toured with her until her unfortunate death in 2012.

Nathan’s work is embodied in recordings by many of today’s leading recording artists. Nathan has recorded on over 40 albums garnering more than 2 million in sales. Many of his projects have earned Grammy, Billboard and multiple Dove Awards. Nathan has been nominated for a Grammy in 2005 for the "Best Contemporary Christian Pop Album of the Year". A higlight in Nathan's career was when he was invited to co-produce a song for a film soundtrack (Pokemon' 2000) with his mentor David Foster (Celine Dion, Chicago, Whitney Houston, Cher).
 

It is this exceptional musical touch that now makes Nathan a highly regarded and sought after videographer / film editor and Producer.  Big Talk Media does much of our editing of footage and musical on lay with our projects in Nathan's Nashville Scrimshaw Studio, a state of the art facility used my many celebrity clients.
