Clients, Friends & Family,


Hope everyone is as excited about 2016 as we are here at JDS. We are very grateful for what we have, where we’re going, and that we can share it with you.

JDS Video & Media Productions, Inc. finished the year with 6 videos in progress that will be wrapped up by the end of January. We’re very happy
about the contract we just signed with MSJC for 10 – 12 videos to be completed throughout 2016. And keep a lookout for the Good Day Temecula, “Things to Watch in 2016,” episode which will be going into production within the next week. We are super excited about a new project,
we’ve partnered with two other production companies to produce original main stream television programming that is set for cable network distribution. Needless to say, it’s been an exciting first few days of the New Year in our video world!

We are very proud and honored that we have been nominated for a third time for the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce’s, “Sterling Business of the Year.” And in other JDS Inc. news, we’ve decided to spread our wings a little more and get involved in a
travel project. If you love travel and want to know more about how you can get involved too, our door is always open, we can help you get started with your own business or get you great deals for your personal/family travel plans.

JDS Actors Studio is kicking off a busy 2016. We’re extremely happy our Scene Study Acting Classes are full and that we have some amazing talent popping up all over TV and Film. Our first workshop of the year is a “Scene Study Camera Workshop,” January 13th
and 20th. Then in February we’re holding our “Spring Industry Workshop” where Los Angeles Agents and Managers come to scout our talent here at JDS Actors Studio. Please check out the Studio News on the home page of the website, or in the
lobby of the studio for dates and more workshop information.

JDS Creative Academy is ecstatic and honored with the two grants the nonprofit was awarded, in November from the Roripaugh Foundation and in December from the Canet Foundation. These funds will allow us to develop some additional classes and programs that require top notch equipment and technology, as well as offer student scholarships.

We start the 2016 Spring Semester the week of January 25th. We have eight classes slated: Drama, Shakespeare, Stage Combat, Script Writing, Musical Theater Show Choir, Puppet Theater, Painting, Fashion, Costumes & More. We are in the process of becoming a certified
apprenticeship program through the State of California and if we hit our enrollment numbers this semester we will be applying for our UC & CSU accreditation. BIG things happening at JDSCA.

Please mark your calendars for January 17, 2016 and join us for our Open House from 11AM – 3PM, we will have our industry professional instructors on hand for questions along with a lot of class information. Come take a tour of the studio and
participate in a round robin of classes. In addition, if you are interested in painting, we have two painting parties going on, one for Kids and Families from 10:30AM – 12noon, and then a BYOB Adult Painting Party from 1-3PM. To participate in the painting
party it’s $45.00 or you can get the Groupon offer from our JDS Creative Academy Facebook page for only $25.00.

We are looking forward to a good year and wish all of you a Wonderful, Healthy, Happy and Prosperous 2016. Let us know if we can be of service with any of your video production / multimedia needs, if you’re looking to learn the craft of acting, break into the entertainment industry, build self-confidence in public speaking, want to educate and/or train in a visual performing art, and I can’t forget Travel, if you wish to learn more on how you can become an entrepreneur in the travel industry or just want to take a once in a lifetime family trip for a great deal – JDS is all you need to think of!

All the best always!
The JDS Team!
