Thomas Schlamme Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Thomas David Schlamme (pronounced Shla-Me; born May 22, 1950) is an American television director. He is best known for his characteristic directing technique called the "walk and talk". These sequences consist of single tracking shots of long duration involving multiple characters engaging in conversation as they move through the set; characters enter and exit the conversation as the shot continues without any cuts.

#Quote
1Probably, the way I ended up in this business was because of air-conditioning. I was a big jock in high school; it was Houston, hot and humid, and tough to do two-a-day practices in football. The theater department [in high school] had the only air-conditioned class. I met someone there, a teacher called Cecil Pickett, who was enormously influential. And from that point on, I started to formulate what I wanted to do.
#Fact
1Considers his filmmaking breakthrough to have come when he directed a Bette Midler concert film in 1984.
2He has visited the White House several times and, during the Clinton administration, once stayed the night in the Lincoln Bedroom. He drew on observations of White House staffers made during this visit to inspire the visual and behavioral style of the fictional staffers in The West Wing (1999), which he co-created with Aaron Sorkin.
3Has three children with his wife Christine Lahti: sons Wilson Lahti Schlamme and Joseph Schlamme; daughter, Emma Schlamme.
