Fun times working on NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center. Lauren produced Holiday Spirit segments for the show, sharing great stories and sprinkling a little holiday magic.
Over the past few months we’ve shot for AP/Invision Agency, Eastern TV, Pilgrim Media and a few very exciting development projects for various companies. We’re currently prepping “The Other Boys of Summer” for color correction. The big push is to lock in distribution and sponsorship partners. Reach out if you’re interested in finding out more or joining the team. It’s a timely project that hits a Home Run with social responsibility.
Earlier this week Lauren spent the afternoon with Cicely Tyson. She joined us in the recording booth for “The Other Boys of Summer”. As a civil rights icon herself, having her as our Narrator is dream come true. She was as lovely as can be and a consummate professional. Thank you Miss Tyson for choosing to be a part of our film. Together we will preserve the legacy of the Negro League trailblazers and bring people together to make a positive impact.

“The Other Boys of Summer” is trending on kickstarter and has been selected to be featured as a “Project We Love”.

Join our team and make a positive impact on civil rights today! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/26398221/baseball-and-civil-rights-the-other-boys-of-summer?ref=6uhyo7
Feels appropriate that we launched our kickstarter campaign for “The Other Boys of Summer” today! Let’s be kind to one another and always fight for equality.
Don’t miss the chance to impact civil rights and preserve the legacy of the Negro League baseball players. Most people aren’t aware that Jackie Robinson stepped on the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers before Rosa Parks, Brown vs. The Board of Education and the march from Selma to Montgomery. When Jackie broke the color barrier in 1947, MLK Jr. was still in college.
Seasons Greetings!! We just launched a site for “The Other Boys of Summer”. Now we’re counting the days/hours to the kickstarter launch. It’s very exciting and happening quickly.
Over the summer we worked on many fun projects and racked up a lot of frequent flier miles. The more we work with clients outside of the traditional network TV world, the more we get to return to the freedom of creativity that inspired us to pursue TV and Film from the start. We still work on broadcast TV projects too. Lauren recently was a Producer/Shooter on “The Job Interview” on CNBC, which launched this week to rave reviews.
