If you want ongoing lessons in acting, we can schedule regular sessions and assist you in becoming a superior performer.
YES, I REMEMBER THAT TOO: Oral storytelling is grounded in memory, and memory is a subjective instrument for relating the past; always shaped by the present moment and the raconteurs emotions. Yes, I Remember That Too is a series of personal stories created from one-on-one interviews that are video and audio taped. Interviews by senior citizens and their family members.
Yes, I Remember That Too allows individuals to document their stories as they reflect on their life. These recordings will become part of a conglomerate of family stories, produced into a personal family video. Each program will also have an audio version available for the visually impaired, i.e. Audio Book. Both formats will be made available to the participating senior citizen and their immediate family.
INDEPENDENT SHORT FILMS: The increased demand for Independent Films is due to its diversity and unique quality. Independent films have become an art form that functions as an instrument to introduce creative filmmakers to mainstream audiences. In the United States, independent film and video producers have found a new audience via the internet. ABJ Productions offers local actors the opportunity to create their own internet film project. Working as the technical crew and casting assistant, we can bring your scripted idea to life.
TALENT REEL: Going to Film and TV auditions may become such a routine for performers that without realizing it, they can easily be overlooked. Standing out above the rest of the talent pool should be the goal of every artist. It is becoming very commonplace for actors and actresses to have more control over their own careers by offering a reel featuring their talents. We assist in providing that control by producing Talent Reels for Actresses, Actors, Directors, Singers, Dancers; basically any artists that wishes to organize their work on film/video. With a Talent Reel DVD, the artist becomes empowered by being able to leave a reel of their accomplishments following their audition.
AUDIO DEMO: For the artist that wants to venture into the entertaining world of Voice-over, Audio Book Narration or seek out singing opportunities; an Audio Demo is an important tool to have. An Audio Demo is a way for a gifted voice talent to approximate their ideas on tape or disc, and provide a sample of those ideas to producers, agents and talent scouts. Your Audio Demo can be created custom-made to your vocal talent.
