BURBANK:MPCi has completed major script revisions with the exciting story on the evolution of Gospel Music. This historic feature film will follow the path of Dr. Thomas A. Dorsey and others that brought this style of music to the forefront in 1930. Dr. Dorsey, made such an impact on the music industry and more importantly, Gospel, he was call the "Father of Gospel Music".
Several years ago, the MPCi production team began researching the evolution of Gospel. Amasingly, the birth of Gospel, know in the early days as "Good News Music", was influenced by Jazz and Blues, the true foundation for the "faith" church music. Dorsey, boldly adapted the 12 bar blues musical format from the Juke Joints and Speakeasies introducing the application or beat to the faithful. The church at that time, would either promote Southern sounds, "Spirituals" or very sophiticated Classical religious music. Once, "Good News Music" was introduced, the "Fathful" gravitated to the sound, which later inspired "Soul" music and has even been attributed to the sound of RAP.
Women, also influenced the evolution in a very strong way. It was women who took this new sound to the churches and changed attitudes toward the beat from "Devils" music to solid faith music. The MPCi story, "GOOD NEWS BLUES" is sure to appeal to the many audiences who embrace the beat, lyric's and sound that will drive this movie to record heights.
MPCi is in negotication to produce the story on the trial of Ameraica's sweetheart, singer and entertainer, LITTLE ESTER.
Ester Jones, an American Vaudeville child entertainer was very popular around the world between 1922 and 1936. Little Ester entertained on the TOBA theater circuit and was enbraced in France, Germany and other European countries. A performance was requested by the King of Spain, Alphonso, the Spanish press billed Ester as "the sensation of Paris, London and New York as the Grand Artist of dance".
When Max Fleischer and Paramount Studios developed the cartoon character "Betty Boop", they based the character on the signature "Boop-Oop-A-Doop" coined by Little Ester. In 1934, film and recording artist, Helen Kane challenged Fleischer and Paramount for 'stealing' the phase from her. The trial unfolded with crowds outside the court house.
MPCi will develop the script along with historian, Jeffery Daniels in the UK. For more information, please contact MPCi.

MPCI DEVELOPING SCI-FI THRILLER
BURBANK: MPCI is currently in development with the Science Fiction thriller "CLAWS OF DARKNESS". The screenplay is an adaptation from the novel written by Authors, Jhon and Anita Lain.
From alien abduction to planetary mysteries, the Lain's captured a true feel for what could be in earth's dark future.
"Jhon told me about this story many years ago before penning the novel", said JC Cummings
MPCI CEO, "once, I heard the entire story plot, I was excited and mentioned to Jhon when he was ready for the big screen, reach out to me and we'd like 'first right of refusal' for the screenplay and production, that time came after sales of the novel were successful through Barnes and Noble."
Jhon and Anita Lain have been a writing team for many years with the inspiration from many novelist, but the one who offered suggestions was the Grand Master of Sci-fi Andre Norton. While Jhon was based at the MPCI offices at the Disney Studios back lot in Orlando, he had the opportunity to sit and discuss 'future Worlds' with Author Andre Norton. Norton gave him a few tips that helped Jhon develop and broadened his character base for "CLAWS OF DARKNESS"
MPCI has added "CLAWS OF DARKNESS" to the production slate for later this year or early 2014. MPCI's JC Cummings will produce and direct the feature using Sony's latest CineAlta F-55 camera's to capture the action.
Once financial details are completed, the next phase will be to lock in talent for the main character roles. Location scouting has already begun in Florida and North Carolina to shoot the on-location scenes. Sound stage activity has not yet been locked in pending where the location work will be completed.
