November 3, 2014

It’s hard to believe we are already rounding out 2014. This has been an amazing year and we’re not finished yet!

JDS Video & Media Productions, Inc logo

JDS Video & Media Productions, Inc. has produced two more Good Day Temecula’s since our spring newsletter Back to School & Summerfest and we are currently in Production for the Holiday Winterfest episode. We are also excited to announce that we have produced our first Football game for the City of Temecula. Be sure and check out our Pilot episode with game coverage of Great Oak High School vs. Temecula Valley High School on the City of Temecula Time Warner Channel 3, and stay tuned for more to come.

We have also stated working with a couple of new clients; Temecula Convention and Visitors Bureau producing videos for their new endeavor Temecula Chilled. And we welcomed a new medical client, International Medical Technology, bringing us back to the roots of our Production Company. Click here for the Colosafe Marketing Video. The “How To” video will be up on our You Tube Channel in a week or so with some great animation be sure and check that out. Also have a look at the 5 Videos we produced for Go Green Reality. They have a great business model that could really change the real estate industry here is a link to Go Green Reality’s main marketing video we did.

But the video that touched our heart the most was the one we produced “In Kind” for Rancho Damacitas Celebrating 30 Years of Service.

JDS Creative Academy logo

JDS Creative Academy has been very busy since the Launch on August 8th. Our six Classes began the week of August 25th (Stage Tech, Script Writing, Styles of Acting, Stage Combat & Movement, Musical Theatre Choir, and Jazz Band/Rock Band/Instrumental ensemble) While the classes are going strong and the kids are learning a lot and enjoying every minute, (See our Pictures from the classes) enrollment has been slower to build, than we anticipated, we hope second semester has a bigger turn out! But never the less we are not skipping a beat, developing new classes and progression classes for the students we do have. We are committed to our nonprofit mission creating quality arts programs for education, and training. We are also offering some free workshops through JDSCA like our Skin Care and Make up workshop on November 5th and 12th open to the public so please join us!

We are also looking forward to our Rock Around the Clock for the Arts Sock Hop Fundraiser November 15th 7 PM – 10PM Check out our Flyer We can’t thank our sponsors enough! The Business community has really stepped up to support us with great “In Kind” contributions and financially. Please help us support them by visiting our Sponsor Thank you page.

Here is my plea! Please, Please come out and enjoy the night! It will be great entertainment – with music by the six piece band One Fine Day featuring Jonnie Fox and the Satinettes, Dancing, 50’s and 60’s themed food, spirits/beverages, raffle prizes and good old fashioned fun (50’s and 60’s attire optional) and it’s all tax deductable for a good cause; Arts, Education, and Workforce training! Tickets on sale through Eventbrite or call our office!

As my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, is approaching I can’t thank our clients, sponsors, business colleagues, friends and family enough for all your support, business, collaboration, and just being there for both Scott and I. I wish you all a very happy holiday season and please know how thankful I am for all of you!

Warm Regards,
Diane Strand & the JDS Team!
