Last week was an exciting one for the glow media world (Preceded by an exciting week, to say the least, in all our worlds!). It began Saturday, Nov. 11, with a full day of soundtrack recording for our new films in the world renowned NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, CA. Big shout out to Chris Wonzer for his wonderful work as our music producer. Special thanks to Dale Fisher and Paul Ill for their incredible talents and continued involvement with our projects. It was also great to see the progress George Glowacki has made over the last few years as he continues to pursue his musical career. His guitar riffs are amazing! We have a few new names on these soundtracks including Kellii Scott, most notably from the band, Failure, on drums, the multi-talented Justin “Kong” Joyce on vocals and bass, and two young artists: Lexie RoseReinhold, and actor/singer Noah Chiet on vocals. The energy in the studio was palpable! We are super excited to hear the finished products and share with you!
We capped off a busy week in Los Angeles attending Facing Addiction’sprogram highlighting the release of the Surgeon General’s report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health, https://addiction.surgeongeneral.gov. Our first film, Warning: Take Only as Directed, spoke directly to issues addressed in the report including the following:
- Nearly 70 percent of those who try an illicit drug before the age of 13 develop a substance use disorder within seven years, compared with 27 percent of those who first try an illicit drug after the age of 17, and
- People who first drink alcohol before age 15 are four times more likely to become addicted at some time in their lives than are those who have their first drink at age 20 or older.
