Hello and thank you for your interest in our newest television production project.

Mark Helms and Howard Cook are partners and owners of Sound and Vision Media, a media production facility and advertising agency, serving both the New England and National markets. The company was originally founded in 1973. Their sister company, which they also co-own, is New Video Images, an independent production company dedicated to the release of new television programs. New Video Images has teamed up with syndicated radio personality, Barry Scott. On the air since 1981, Barry has interviewed over 800 popular recording celebrities for his syndicated radio program “The Lost 45s”. Because of his popularity as a radio personality and as a best selling author, Barry has appeared on VH1, CNN, the Howard Stern show as well as many other local and national media.

The radio version of the show can be heard in dozens of markets across the USA, including the home base in Boston, MA. “The Lost 45s” is currently being developed as a television pilot which will be completed by the summer of 2012. Music personalities who have already been successfully filmed include Tommy James of the Shondells, Ian Lloyd of Stories, Joey Molland of Badfinger, Bill Wadhams of Animotion ,Gino Vannelli, Jimi Jamison of Survivor, John and Valerie Smith of Nu Shooz, Marv and Rindi Ross of Quarterflash, and John Ford Coley of England Dan & John Ford Coley.

“The Lost 45’s” is an introspective look into the circumstances surrounding the making of Top 40 hit songs, that everyone fondly remembers, but are not often heard playing on their favorite radio stations. It is a unique look into the dynamics of how and why these recordings were created and the stories about the songs. It is not a “Where Are they Now”, or a “Behind The Music” or a “One Hit Wonders” type of program, which makes it even more compelling. Each hour-long episode will feature three to five different recording artists/songs per program.

New Video Images has produced many successful television series throughout the years for national cable networks like American Movie Classics and for the Pay Per View industry as well, including: “One Wild Ride” a motorcycle rally documentary series that successfully ran nationally for four years on Request Pay Per View, “The Absolute Naked Truth,” an expose about the famous Foxy Lady strip club in Providence, Rhode Island. Our production “The History of Pinball” featured Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Major League slugger Frank Thomas, and Slash, formally of Guns and Roses. This program aired on AMC.

We are currently filming additional music personalities and are looking forward to the success of this exciting and musically informative television series. Many other rock and pop legends are already slated to be shot in the summer of 2012.

Thank you for your interest!
