JDS Video & Media Productions, Inc logo

This past May, JDS Video & Media Productions celebrated an anniversary milestone; 10 successful years in business. On the Production front we have been keeping ourselves busy. January through June we worked with Abbott Vascular, Creating Content and Producing their 90 minute Live Customer Appreciation Event that is presented both in Temecula and Northern California. We have also been working with the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce. Currently we are creating a video series for their Etiquette Professional Development workshop and here is the link to the Power Networking Video we did this spring. We are also very excited about the web series Good Day Temecula that we are producing for The City of Temecula. Click here for the newest release episode on Parks and Recreation. Also archived are the first two episodes. Click here for the Pilot Episode & Click here for the Business Episode. We are excited for what’s ahead in the second half of 2013.

JDS Actors Studio

When we are not creating video content we are inspiring Toddlers, Children, Teens and Adults through creative enrichment and learning the Craft of Acting. Scott Strand’s “Truth in Acting” coaching style gives actors of all ages a strong sense of self, utilizing a healthy Mind, Body and Spirit to project emotional and physical action into the portrayal of any character. Actors learn to make strong choices that are grounded in the text of the script yet not limited by anything – but the actors own imagination.

We have been very successful in helping Actors learn the entertainment industry and succeed in “Breaking In”. We are very proud of the talent that has developed in our studio. Our Actors that we have assisted in launching their careers are achieving great heights. Massiah Video Testimonial Corinne Massiah has been consistently working as an actor since going through our industry workshop and she is currently contracted as “Lucy” (one of the Lead’s Daughter) on ABC’s Mistresses, which just got renewed for next season. We are proud to say that we have assisted over 35 actors break into the entertainment industry, as well as over 300 learn the craft of acting which provides self confidence and leadership skills.

Diane Strand keeps a presence for JDS Video & Media Productions / JDS Actors Studio in the business community by being involved in the organizations that shape the region and support business growth. Diane started off the year committing to being an Ambassador for the Temecula Valley Chamber. Then in July she got appointed to the Riverside County Workforce Investment Board. In addition to recently joining Women’s Pier Connection Diane is working with the Women in Business Committee for the Temecula Chamber event on September 12th at South Coast Winery. As a board member and the Chair of the Marketing Committee for the EDC of Southwest California, Diane and the committee are working to promote the EDC Open House on August 15th at TV2. The Entrepreneurs Exchange asked Diane to speak this past May on the Power of Video Marketing.

On the home front Diane is the Treasurer of the Choral Music Parents fundraising group for her teenage Son’s Middle School competition choral music program. The JDS name sakes are all growing up so quickly; Joshua is 13 ½ and heading off to 8th grade and Jordan is 9 ½ and going into 4th grade and the youngest Jasmine who will be 5 in mid October is starting school this year with Transitional Kindergarten. The new Temecula Valley unified program for those students who miss the Oct 1st. kindergarten cutoff date. Scott and Diane are also excited about some new ventures they are looking to get involved in, but we will save that news for a later date when there is more to talk about, Stay Tuned! ☺
