Talent & Production Manager
Terry Hopper, founder of Anatime Entertainment, is a second generation music and entertainment specialist. Surviving in business since the day after his 18th birthday in 1994, working in the Special Event Industry is Terry’s full time chosen profession. Known for his versatility, Terry has entertained across America including appearances on Comedy Central, WGN-9, and even Pay Per View Sports Entertainment Television.
Fine reception halls trust Terry to produce the very best as he was recently called upon to produce sound and lighting solutions for a presentation by Sean Payton, Coach of the 2010 Super Bowl Champions, the New Orleans Saints.
He adapts to all situations as a professionally trained Master of Ceremonies, knowing when to be moderate to outgoing. Terry takes a personal approach. He will walk you through the night filled with traditions and new experiences being most comfortable in his Jean Yves-Paris tuxedo.
“Will he be the one to keep us on time?” Terry works closely on site with hall managers, caterers, and photographers - he sets the pace and keeps you on time and on schedule throughout your event.
You’ll frequently see Terry as he takes part in the local community through his volunteer work with the United Way funded Operation Snowball. He also acts as a mentor to young entrepreneurs through Emmy Award Winner Craig Lindvahl’s “Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities” class.
Lights are his brushes and your event hall is his canvas. As Chief Lighting Designer with Anatime Entertainment he will splash lights in your customized theme colors on your walls, ceiling, and dance floor with Anatime’s exclusive Romantic Dream™ Lighting. It’s inviting. It’s warm and creates the “WOW!” when your guests enter the room. It sets the mood for a fun evening. Have Terry produce a custom Monogram or Corporate image IN LIGHT and project it onto the wall or dance floor.
Need advice in the Special Event planning process? Terry will be happy to introduce you to many of his associates and friends that he has made during his years in the Special Event industry.
Pressing ‘play’ is the last thing you will pay Terry Hopper to do as he does so much more.
