I'm a music producer working with children's singer/songwriter R.M. Charde. We are producing our second film "When I'm With You".
FIRST OF ALL THANK YOU. Richard Stiehm for shooting and editing. All Rankin/Bass images courtesy © RANKIN/BASS/RICK GOLDSCHMIDT ARCHIVES. Thank you Rick! Other music © CA70 Music.
Hi! My name is Chris Jones. I'm a music producer based in NYC. For the past 13 years you've heard my music on all major network and cable broadcasters. My clients include: Universal/BMG, Warner Chappell and Imagem. I produce all kinds of music both for myself and other artists. Another one of my clients is singer/songwriter R.M. Charde.
In 2007, award-winning animator David B. Levy animated the song "Good Morning", which I produced for R.M. Charde. It was (and continues to be a) very successful hit film/song and (to me) a very good formula for independent animated films. This formula especially appeals to me being a music and sound guy.
We want to keep going. This next project is for (what I would consider) a future classic called "When I'm With You". We've secured the talents of legendary Rankin/Bass animator Don Duga and (already) you can see, his designs are spot-on for this piece. My idea in casting Don as animator was was to match the music to the "look" of the song: we're creating the film you remember seeing as a kid today.
Note: TWELVIA and FRUTA MANZANA are by IRRA VERBITSKY with DON DUGA = POLESTAR ANIMATION. Don wanted me to clarify for Irra.
Yes. Yes it is.
The EKAs of Fruta Manazana and Twelvia are 1984-86 (Sesame Street Seasons 16, 17). Did you make an honest mistake when doing your film?
Yes. Yes I did. However, I thought they were produced in the late 70's.
