How the Picture Book Productions New Art Form Works?
WHAT IS PICTURE BOOK PRODUCTIONS?
PBP has created a New Symphonic Art Form and Brand to accomplish its mission through value-based entertainment. These are presented as theatrical musicals/musical concerts introduced by a book and CD and, later, with motion pictures, television series and other multi-media events, video games, dolls, toys and merchandise of all kinds.
This Art Form was created to provide the highest quality value-based multi-media entertainment at the lowest possible production costs as well as the lowest ticket prices so that we can bring our projects to all the people in the world, poor and rich alike.
One of its primary focus is one-person theatrical musicals, biographies, health and entertainment seminars, using this brand new art form for 3D interactive theatrical, musical productions that will evoke one's imagination.
PBP productions will be performed with symphony orchestras, a huge screen, special effects and a star in very large venues.
They can also be performed with one person, an empty stage, a grand piano and sound effects along with a large, interactive screen and as many musicians as desired in any size venue including theaters as well as almost any venue.
Hundreds or thousands of these productions can be performed, all at the same time, for minimal costs and ticket prices in smaller venues and in poor countries that can't afford this kind of enlightening entertainment, using their own stars.
These productions will be sales vehicles and produced work-shops for old and new Motion Pictures, Television and Broadway Productions, videos, iPad and all other areas of media, old and new, known and unknown.
Picture Book Productions takes the visual ingredients of a motion picture, adds the orchestral soundtrack of a Broadway musical or three or fourlive musician and one major star.
As Cirque du Soleil is to the Circus, Picture Book Productions is to Theater. These Pre-Broadway shows will be franchised to Producers in one hundred markets around the world as a Season of PBP productions.
These productions will then be cloned as either short versions for schools and churches around the world or as full versions to the over 10,000 untapped markets. Their purpose is to inspire and elevate those who cannot afford this kind of entertainment. Much of the money will go to a Charity to help get the over 200 million homeless children off the street; save the oceans; forests; jungles and environment; as well as to help the aged and children with Cancer. From this, there will be a Pay-Per-View Series and a major motion picture or TV Special or Series.
As the star tells the story, we see the images of the story visually unfolding on the large 3D, interactive movie screen behind him/her.
Additionally, there will be the appropriate sound effects, voice-overs, honking horns, crowds, rain, thunder, lightening, the ocean as well as other visual effects such as mist, rain, snow and whatever evokes the mood and activates one's imagination and sensory systems. This New Art Form embraces a Symphony of sounds, colors, images and special effects.
PBP presents a revolutionary, new art form with all the production values of a Broadway Production at minimal costs.
These productions, where the visuals or movie clips are on one DVD and the orchestral track is on one CD, will then be cloned and produced as a season of Pre-Broadway Concerts in hundreds of cities throughout the world, with a major Producer in each city.
Later, they will be cloned in 1000's of cities throughout the world, using the people in each city to produce and the appropriate star to act in them.
Since all that is needed is a large screen and a good sound system, PBP can be produced in brand new venues and places throughout the world that could never before produce nor afford to produce First Class Productions, using their own talent and a star, which we can provide, if desired.
This innovative approach to major musical theatrical presentations will be presented from the author-composer and lyricist's point-of-view. They will be the first shows produced that reflect the true intention of its creator (story teller), without compromise.
In reality, this is Interactive Theater, which we call, Picture Show Theater.
Picture Show Theater is book and music-driven entertainment that begins with a Picture Book that is a condensation of the Major Book/Biography/Seminar/Musical upon which the production is based. In the back of the Picture Books are the CD's of the Music and songs.
Picture Show Theater can also present new style musical/concerts based on already produced and new movies, television shows and book biographies, , classic stories and fairytales as reflected on our Product pages.
A Broadway (or other venue) Musical, Motion Picture and/or TV Special or Series will follow. Each new production/book/CD is a Brand unto itself with its own book/music publishing, toys, dolls, clothes, video/internet games, and other merchandize to follow.
All the images in the Picture Book become three-dimensional images on the screen that are on one DVD. The orchestral track is on one CD. The orchestra can be changed into any key to fit any performer. Each musical will require only a One Time Cost for producing the DVD and CD and a few live musicians, if desired.
With one 3-D Visual DVD and one Music CD, PST can be cloned in thousands of tapped and untapped markets around the world at one time using a star, if desired or the actor-singer from each venue. If desired, this can include a small band playing along with the pre-recorded orchestra, giving it the feeling of a full live orchestra with a Broadway sound, without the major cost.

“The Parable of the Tree”
(Jermaine Jackson Tells It Straight From The Heart)
1.The show begins with Jermaine singing, off-stage: “Smile.”
Music continues as Jermaine walks onto the stage and says: “I sang that song at my brother, Michael's Memorial Service. He was my best friend. Hello, I'm Jermaine Jackson. There has been a lot said and written about Michael, myself and my family and no two people ever come up with the same story. I think it's time I set the record straight. This is my story and the story of my family. In a way, it's also your story.”
Theme Music: “Every Step Along The Way” underscores the entire show.
“The Parable of the Tree” – Jermaine tells the story of the family. It begins one starlit evening with Kathyrn wishing on a star. (Song: “Starlight, Starbright.” ) Kate's wish is to have a wonderful marriage to Joe and a family that will leave a legacy for the world to remember. Here, we establish “The Parable of the Tree,” with Kate and Joe as the roots and each child, a branch of the tree. (We see a photo of Kate standing in front of a clothes-line. Nearby stands a barren tree. A large wall surrounds the scene. We see how racism abounds in America, separating the African-American Community from the rest of the world. They cannot eat in the same restaurant, sleep at the same hotels, ride in the same busses. Segregation is at its height.)
Jermaine: “I was born on December 11, 1954 in Gary, Indiana. My parents were Catherine and Joseph Jackson. I am the fourth of ten children. My family was very musical. My mom was an aspiring singer and clarinetist. My father briefly played the guitar with his brother and his band, the Falcons. (See on 3D screen and hear this.) But, while music was their passion, it didn't pay our bills. So my dad supported our family with his job at US Steel while mom stayed home and raised us.” (See on screen and hear sound effects. Do the same for every scene throughout the show, evoking every sensory system possible. Use sounds of the city, thunder, rain, crowds cheering or booing, etc. At times, Jermaine will talk or sing to the people on the screen, who will either talk or sing back interactively. He will also break up songs with telling the story and then come back to the song to finish it. )
