Saving Jayme – A young woman and her battle with illiteracy. Short Form Documentary

Saving JaymeFor the past couple of months we have been working on a short form documentary called “Saving Jayme”.  It documents her journey of being a 22 year old woman that is on a 3rd grade reading level and her 10 week transformation into a college level reader.  None of this would be possible without The Dicker Reading Method and their unique approach to improving reading and comprehension for all ages and ability levels.

We spent some of last week tracking drums for Jason Glassman’s upcoming EP.  Jason produced the EP at his home and found us to finish the recordings with live drums.  With professional drummer, Dan Winterstein, we got some really big sounds out of our custom DW kit.

Youth Artist Development Westchester NY

Youth Artist Development WestchesterAt Production Deluxe we have a passion for dsicovering and developing teenage artists.  Whether the artist is looking to create a recording to enrich their college application, or  to begin a professional music career it is important to get started the recording process started the right way.  In addition to creating great sounding and enjoyable recordings we have helped students pass auditions and gain entry into special programs.  Many of our young artists have performed in conventions, festivals, clubs, and on mainstream radio.  We strongly believe in the preproduction process, helping the artist better craft their songs, and perfect their performances way before we bring them in to hit record.  We are very excited for the EP we are finishing up this month for one of our teenage artists Catherine S.  It is truly inspiring.
