Connecting the World

Our Video Series Research

From the beginning of time, we as humans have made rhythmic sounds with various tones through our mouth and with our hands. We have also created handmade musical instruments to add depth to the human experience. The entire World is filled with unique and interesting people that have grown and developed music, and many continue to create and produce amazing forms and styles. Throughout history, from singing a song to whistling a tune, music has always been at the core of culture and human nature.

Looking at the many TV series that have been made and are being produced in the U.S., there are so many “home” shows, like “Buy and Flip”, shows for renovations, tree houses, tiny homes, and many more to watch. There are also many different cooking and food shows being produced that are very popular, such as “Top Chef”, “Hell’s Kitchen”, “Dinners, Drive-Ins and Dives”, and “MasterChef”. They also have many well-known cooking competition shows with celebrity chefs, and an entire food channel, called, “Food Network” with even more choices to choose from.

With regard to TV series about music, there are a few large and popular shows out there that are more about competition and ‘winning’, like “American Idle”, “America’s Got Talent”, and “The Voice”. There are even a few fictitious TV series about people within the music industry, like “Monarch”, “Empire”, and “Nashville”. There have also been some short run series on specific genres or themes, like “The Lonesome Road” for country music and “VH1 – Behind the Music” showcasing rock and roll bands. However, our research shows that there are no TV music series that show the variety, history, and love of music with many specific types and styles of music around the world!

Our Music Video Series

Our Music Video Series is completely unique, and the "hook" will be telling stories of different styles and locations of many diverse types of music, musicians, and where it all comes from, We also will be telling the story of how music connects the human race all around the world. The number of ideas and interesting content for this series is unlimited. Our unique Title Sequence (as seen below) will begin each episode to show the variety of visual and musical styles that will be covered throughout the series.

Our Episode Concepts

Within every episode we produce, we will bring in interesting people who also have great histories and stories to tell. Some of these people will be well-known and some will be just getting started. We will connect with people involved in and around the music business, and even those that simply love music.

Some episodes will contain philosophical ideas and/or challenges within their own connection to music. For instance, some types of music have almost died or have drifted away. We would love to show how it can be revitalized and brought back and hopefully be even better than before.

Most of the episodes currently on our list fall into one of the following categories:

  • Music Cities and/or Areas

  • Types of Music

  • Musicians, Groups, Bands, and People

  • People in the Music Business

We are also currently exploring the various distribution channels for the series.

Our Pilot Episode #1

We are currently producing our Pilot Episode and look to grow our on-going series for years to come. As we have a lot of great and successful music friends and connections within Nashville, TN, we would like to start this series with the pilot episode featuring the heart of Music City USA.

For the Main Story of this first episode, we will capture many different elements and facets of Nashville. We will dig into the original Music Row and introduce the songwriters and how this intertwines into the overall Nashville music business.  Of course, we will also show some of the nitty-gritty elements of Nashville's bars and honky-tonks.

We will showcase a few well-known local music stars and a few musicians and singers that are hoping to make it big. We intend to incorporate Nashville’s music history, stories, and nostalgia with authentic and historic photo content. As there is also now quite a bit of new and hip music styles to be found in Nashville, we will include other genres of music beyond just Country.

Because our video series will be entertaining with some documentary angles, our narrator will connect the topics and weave together the stories of this particular episode and location.

Finally, we will show where Nashville is today and present some of the music performers and show the packed venues where the best music is being played around town.

Our Family Music Background

Growing up in Kentucky, the Parker family was always very musical. The Parker boys grew up with their parents having groups of people over to their house weekly as their parents taught the people how to play and enjoy the guitar. Their father, Bill Parker, was also in two college singing quartets named "The Archers" and "The Four Winds". Their father also traveled all over the mountains and valleys of the Southeast United States to meet, record, and document people singing and playing traditional instruments with old-time and historical music. Their family grew up singing and harmonizing with many types of music and learned how to play many different musical instruments.

Their parents played many years in many different Bluegrass festivals up in Eastern Kentucky and they simply soaked it all in. Their parents also played and performed folk music together as a couple, and also together with another married couple to create a folk band called the "Village Singers". They finally got another musical couple to sing around the U.S. and were ultimately requested to perform their Folk songs and unique style at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC in 1970.

Becoming teenagers, they managed to go to many big concerts, including Rock, New Wave, Jazz, and alternative music. Later in life and living in Europe and Southeast Asia for many years, they also enjoyed many different types of music. Even though they understood that the writing and the meaning of the music were very important, the ongoing sound and rhythm are just as critical for all types of music.

Growing up in Paducah, KY, their dad was a singer for many years in a Gospel quartet named "The Men of Song" with Larry Stewart (Nashville, Restless Heart) playing the piano with his dad (Buddy Stewart) as the lead singer and performing around the region in many churches and public events.

Business partners and brothers, Clayton and Creston Parker still play a bit of music with the family. The brothers are great story tellers with a broad range of video business experience that closely covers all the bases to direct, film, edit, and produce video production work with their Big Acorn Studios, located in the Atlanta, GA area.
