Singer/Songwriter/Actress Kim Vogels Continues to Blend Her Multitude of Talents and “Gather Her Wolves”

Following Release of Debut EP “Native”, She’s Set to Release New Video for “Call of the Wild”

July, 2016 (New York, NY) — On the heels of her debut EP “Native”, Amsterdam’s own Singer/Songwriter/Actress Kim Vogels has been attracting plenty of attention with her unique blend of “Gypsy Folk Rock” from Long Island’s East End all the way to the Big Apple, as she gears up for the release of her brand new video “Call of the Wild” with the help of Hand Me Down Films.

Watch the brand new video for “Call of the Wild” here:

Born in Amsterdam into a creative family, Kim Vogels began her artistic journey as a classical and jazz cellist at the age of five. Over time and over seven different cities in four different countries, Kim was drawn to create and express not just through music. This lead to her studies at prestigious drama school Rose Bruford College in London where she was able to explore all sides of acting, performance art, physical and experimental theatre, and the blend of music and theatre.

After a few years in London she attended The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute in New York City for two years. There she was able to truly find and explore her love for the art of acting on stage and in front of the camera. As a professional Actress, music has again become an avenue of expression using her cello as well as guitar to create original material. Finding a niche in the acting industry as an actor/musician it was her role as “Jazz”, a 1960’s Greenwich Village Beatnik poetess, in Kingdom Entertainment’s Folk City: The Musical, that really sparked the singer/songwriter within her. Folk City “captured the intoxicating world of music, drugs, and sex that lured America’s youth to 1960s Greenwich Village”. It was in this production where she met fellow actor and musician Cass Dillon, who later went on to produce Kim Vogels’ debut EP “Native”. She is currently working on putting together a tour and on writing/recording new material.

“It may be a simple concept but it is a strong one: ‘to love, enjoy and fully experience the movement of your own body’. I love to dance and move and walk and breath, things we often take for granted, ‘Call of The Wild’ is my invitation to move”

Being brought up surrounded by so many different cultures she was drawn to the power and energy of the original sound of those worlds i.e. Flamenco, Klezmer, Celtic, early Persian, Gypsy, Native American, Folk & Blues etc. Even though these musical styles are all quite different from each other, they hold a similarity in their powerful connection to their culture. In the creation of Kim’s music and her first EP it was apparent how many different global influences there were. As she moved from place to place she was drawn to the soul of those cultures, eventually fusing them together to create her own sound, her own unique culture, her own “Native” produced at Baby Studios on Long Island.

Based On Historical Stories, “Generals of the Yang Family” Is A Collection Of Chinese Folklore, Plays, And Novels About A Military Family From The Earlier Years Of Imperial China’s Song Dynasty


New York, NY (September, 2016) — Earlier this month, the start-up film company, Owltainment, officially partnered with Tencent and Deadwood Studio (based in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province) to help produce a  “Generals of the Yang Family” film.

Set in the Song Dynasty during the 5th year (980) of the region of Emperor Taizu of Song, the story follows a general’s son, Yanzhao Yang, and his journey to save his father and his home country with the help of his friends and lover. The story will be portrayed by “Cosers;” Japanese and Chinese youth who dress up like animation characters, and are known for emulating not just the costumes but the roles of the characters themselves. Cosers are very popular and have massive amounts of followers and fans in China, making them a perfect fit for a refreshingly new and original representation of the classic story.

Tencent is one of the largest Internet companies in the world, offering services such as social networks, web portalse-commerce, and multiplayer online games to their customers. Its offerings in China include the well-known instant messenger Tencent QQ and one of the largest web portals, Mobile chat service WeChat has even helped bolster Tencent’s continued expansion into smartphone services. Looking forward, Tencent remains committed to enhancing its development and innovation capabilities while strengthening its nationwide branding for its long term development.

Owltainment was founded by Yuanyuan Chen and Mingda Dong, two New York University students who decided to use their creative talents to–among many others–help create daring and unique new concepts. In addition to cell phone filmmaking, Owltainment also produces features and documentaries with regular cameras, teaming up with specialists. And while filmmaking has been a hot topic in both the U.S. and China for many years, Owltainment is continuing to help bring the two industries closer together.

With a versatile approach, Owltainment is helping to introduce American film scholars to China, while dually hosting lectures and seminars for Chinese students and filmmakers. By doing so, the company has additionally taken a head-on approach towards film education. As film festival organizers, they continually host, support, and implement activities (like the Honor Festival) for Film Festivals both in the U.S. and China.

With such a unique and inspiring approach towards filmmaking, as well as their recent partnership with Tencent, Owltainment is connecting the history of China using progressive concepts, and internationally connecting two distinguished nations via filmmaking.
