I am Pablo Velez. I was a cast member on the PBS KIDS show, ZOOM. Come on and AMA!
Hubellubo, Friubends! I’m Pablo! You may remember me from the PBS KIDS show, ZOOM. It’s been 21 years, and I’m so excited to re-connect with all of you for this special edition ZOOM AMA. Here’s a little about what I have been up to: Because of ZOOM, I pursued a career in entertainment, initially in front of the camera but mainly working behind the scenes in television and film production. I studied TV and film at Emerson College then spent 10 years working on a variety of productions including, A Place of Our Own / Los Niños en su Casa (PBS), FETCH! With Ruff Ruffman (PBS), Hall Pass (New Line), The Three Stooges Movie (Fox), and many others. In 2016, I produced my first feature film, Annabelle Hooper and the Ghosts of Nantucket (Netflix). In addition to my production experience, I also worked in Visual Effects at 20th Century Fox on feature films, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Prometheus, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, and many others. I also served as a development/production Executive and Producer for The Three Stooges company, C3 Entertainment, where I developed new TV and film content based on The Three Stooges and other established properties. I’m now back where it all started, WGBH Boston, working in production finance, where I oversee and manage the funding to many of WGBH’s programs. But enough about me, let’s hear from you!
