38 Greene Studios Helps Fox Searchlight Pictures Find Attitude

Gives Mercer Films a reason to hope (February 08, 2006)
38 Greene Studios, a New York City based recording studio handling mix to picture, original music and radio advertising, gave Fox Searchlight Pictures a ?New Attitude when they re-recorded an updated version of the old Patti Labelle tune featuring singer Frenchie Davis for their upcoming feature film, ?Phat Girlz. Davis, the ex-American Idol, breathed new life into the classic hit ?New Attitude. ?Frenchie was a blast, shes an incredible singer says 38 Greenes head engineer, Casey Chester, who recorded and mixed the vocal production. ?She was perfect for that song, both vocally and mentally. Ms. Davis made a splash back in 2003 when she was booted off of the second season of American Idol. But she bounced back, quickly landing a role on Broadway in ?Rent then touring in a revival of ?Dreamgirls. ?She sounds fabulous, says composer/producer Martin Blasick, who wrote the new arrangement. Blasick worked on music for the movie ?The Princess Diaries and most recently composed the song ?Dont Move On which was sung on-camera by Lindsey Lohan in the Disney picture ?Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (2004).

The song is set for use in the upcoming Fox Searchlight film ?Phat Girlz starring larger than life comedienne, MoNique. Its due to hit theatres April 2006.

38 Greene Studios also lent a hand in recording actor Matthew Modine for a public service announcement for the Lustgarden Foundation. The foundation was established in 1998 to advance the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer. The PSA, entitled ?A Reason for Hope was produced by Mercer Films Matt Fiorello and directed by Jay Alaimo for NY advertising agency, Gardner Nelson & Partners. ?A Reason for Hope was simultaneously recorded and filmed inside the vocal booth of 38 Greenes Studio B.

Based in New York, Mercer Films is a feature film and commercial production company. Upcoming Mercer Films projects include Chlorine, a feature film. Chlorine will be directed by Alaimo and produced by Fiorello along with The Grudges Cartsen Lorenz.

Modine, a veteran of over 40 films, is an active supporter of pancreatic cancer research and currently serves on the board of directors for The Lustgarten Foundation. Modine is best known for his lead in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket and his winning turn as an FBI agent in Married to the Mob with Michelle Pfeiffer. Modine was recently nominated for both a Golden Globe and Emmy for his role in the madefor- TV movie ?And the Band Played On.
