Robert Gengerke brings over a quarter of a century of experience to video, print and interactive media as a writer, producer and director of corporate programs that educate employees and customers, motivate staff, and help sell products. His video and interactive programs have been featured in venues around the world, from global expositions to trade shows. He produced his first interactive program in the 1980s, with Sperry's first educational interactive videodisc series. Prior to developing interactive programs, he was staff Executive Producer at Sperry (later Unisys) where he wrote, produced and directed the corporate identification videotape that positioned the new firm for the business marketplace. He also created the company's first video training for ethics awareness and federal regulation compliance. His dual role as Executive Producer and segment writer/director of Technical Difficulties earned him a Certificate of Creative Excellence at the US Film and Video Festival, and a Gold Medal from the ITVA.
In 1990 he began serving a number of Fortune 100 clients as an independent producer, writer and director. Three years later, in order to provide more comprehensive services for customers, he formed Magic Box Communications, a type C corporation headquartered in New York City. Prior and current clients include Fortune 100 firms in the fields of high technology, pharmaceutical products, finance/insurance and others. He has edited and written print/audiovisual educational programs for Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, and taught at Central Michigan University before entering the corporate arena in 1979. His Bachelor's degree is from the State University of New York at Binghamton, and he earned his Master's degree in Communications from Temple University.

Through TV Talent 3, she teaches performance arts to students of all ages and at all levels of experience. Her experience in developing new business opportunities began in 1993, when she developed products and managed the design studio functions of a global retail startup division, Warner Brothers Studio Stores. She applied this experience successfully at Time Inc., where leveraging the Time/Life Picture Collection photograph assets she developed new products for retail markets, negotiated licensing arrangements for Time/Life photographs in television, advertising and design markets, and developed a system for licensing and implementing a wall art collection for corporate sales. She later restructured the business operations of the photo department for TV Guide, streamlining throughput and exploring markets for new products.
Her experience as an educator completes her unique profile in developing new educational products and programs: Ms. Lomangino has a degree in Speech and Dramatic Education from the University of Maryland and has taught elementary and high school children in the theater arts, as well as adults in the advanced on-camera commercial division of the Weist-Barron School.
