Billy was honored recently by Glenn Brannan, Executive Producer of “The Sparrows” (www.TheSparrowsOnline.com) who took an interest in Billy’s career and music.

The show begins production this summer and will air nationally on Fox TV this fall before the new “24″, a perfect time slot.

NANDAR Entertainment Group out of Hollywood recently shot the TV series trailer in Los Angeles that will also run on over 2,500 theaters nationally before the kick-off season.

The family show is patterned after “7th Heaven” and “Little House on the Prairie” which both had very successful runs in their day.

After reviewing Billy’s work and trajectory, Glenn referred Billy’s marketing agency Marketing Dynamics who recommended Billy to Glenn who then referred Billy to Music Producer Ken Hampton.

We will post more updates this season. There was even some talk about a cameo role.

Reality-based TV Producer Launches “Hungry Fish Camp” and “iThirst” Productions – features Billy Dorsey

Students become the media producers working with real award-winning filmmakers and music producer/artist

Hungry Fish Camp and "iThirst" Students and Producers

Hungry Fish Camp and “iThirst” Students and Producers

(Schertz, Texas) – The team from Hungry Fish Camp convened spontaneously at Cross Point Fellowship in Schertz, Texas to take on a unique vision from husband and wife team, Jay and Kara Jones who are based out of Seattle, WA.

Jay has worked on several reality based TV shows like “The Jerry Springer Show” (out of college), “The Tyra Banks Show” (Jay proposed to his wife live with Tyra’s help in one episode), “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”, “Ice Road Truckers”, “1,000 Ways to Die”, and “Hoarders”, to name a few.

Their vision was to work with the youth and equip next generation content producers to create an experience for them that would leave a lasting impact and accelerate their interest in making life-changing media that inspires and challenges others to do the same. The idea caught on when it resonated with several key supporters that included a marketing company, business broadcast company, sunglass manufacturer, theatrical filmmaker, and a music star.

“I was blown away by the caliber of talent that came to the table, so quickly to support our first test production,” says Jay Jones, “We reached out to 2013 Grammy, multiple Stellar and Dove Award-winning music producer Billy Dorsey who also serves as Outreach Pastor for Lakewood Church, who graciously accepted our invitation to participate, as did award-winning filmmaker Director Baldemar Rodriguez of “In Search of the American Dream.”

“The kids didn’t really know what to expect, but we explained to them that this was ‘their’ production and their opportunity to work with real industry professionals and that it would all culminate in a ‘Hungry Fish Camp” red carpet experience where they would be celebrated for their work,” says Jay Jones, “They were allowed to tweet, post on Facebook, created Vine and Instagram videos, and share their experience in real-time on-line with their friends (#ithirst, #hungryfishcamp).”

The kids were provided hands-on experience with lighting and sound, various types of movie and picture cameras, smartphone fixtures which enable a regular phone to be turned into a production camera with special lenses and microphone apparatuses, marketing and promotions, product placement, use of music, working with on-camera talent, directing the crew, and advanced editing.

“The most amazing part of the entire weekend was presenting their production to a live audience and hearing their testimonies of faith and love via the ‘iThirst’ series of the production and watching them receiving their awards,” says Kara, “These kids followed the celebrities, who shared their own success journey on-camera, but to hear and view the kids explain their own life struggles was challenging and captivating.”

Will this become a “reality-based” series? Stay tuned.

Sikkshades by Eddie Bauer, Jr. Signs Grammy, Multiple Dove and Stellar Award Music Producer – Billy Dorsey

Italian Design, Electric Flash Protection by Carl Zeiss, Patented Non-slip Nose Cradle, Balanced


 

DSC020142/26/14 (Houston, Texas) – Sikkshades® by Eddie Bauer, Jr. was launched in May of 2013 with idea of changing the industry from what is currently available in the three billion dollar sunglasses market. A true entrepreneur and iconic leader in his circles, Eddie sought out the best in the sports community for market feedback, retail and distribution advisers, marketing and sales strategists, lens technology leaders, and artisan Italian designers to create two introductory styles – The Huckleberry and The Qualifier (wraps). The shades currently retail at $130 each, a very competitive price point compared to more established offerings at much higher prices.

DSC02018Billy Dorsey is a young man on an amazing trajectory musically and in life. Billy has been racking up awards producing music for Rap Artist juggernaut Lecrae, Andy Mineo, 10th Avenue North, and has worked with many known artists in the pop world. He recently launched his own album “Marathon” that hit the Top 40 Gospel Charts on iTunes in 3 hours. That is not all Billy also serves as Outreach Pastor at Lakewood Church, America’s largest evangelical mega-church. The key for any new brand is aligning with leaders in the marketplace.

“We are looking forward to working with Billy and associating his influence in the music world and our style of shades that we are socializing in our current market and catering to all demographics and sectors,” says Eddie Bauer, Jr., CEO of Sikkshades by Eddie Bauer, Jr.

“As a recording artist and music producer, shades create an aura of mystery and intrigue. However, on-stage the glaring lights help to protect my eyes. Eddie Bauer, Jr. has created a truly unique brand of eyewear that look great and allow for clarity of vision,” says Billy, “I’m already getting texts from my influential music friends who want to also represent Sikkshades by Eddie Bauer, Jr.”

Sikkshades by Eddie Bauer, Jr. features a patented non-slip nose cradle. Many athletes lamented that the major brands slip off their face under the inertia of their movements. In addition, these intense performers were concerned about “prism” effect and distant distortion provided by leading eyewear as well. At high speeds, clarity of vision and distance judgment is critical.

So, Eddie solved these problems with a product that is fashionable, balanced, assembled by hand, built-to-last, and relieves stress points along the temples and behind the ear. Flash Electric™ ballistic grade and shatter-proof lenses provided by Carl Zeiss, reduces or eliminates visual micro fractures which can stress the eyes. Flash Electric is an iridium embedded process that is scratch and smudge resistant and allows the eye to receive natural light without causing pupils to dilate and impacting the eyes with an overexposure of UV and UVB light. Other lenses may cause the pupils to widen, allowing more unhealthy light rays to impact the retinas. Some have reported a feeling of nausea with inferior lenses.

The iconic “Sikkshades Groucho” logo was expertly designed by a leading logo designer and has been adopted in the extreme sports and longboard skate community as “The Moustache Shades” which adds to the “cool factor”. The eye ware has also been adopted by those serving the military and law enforcement, with great reviews on social media.

Billy Dorsey went from sleeping in a 5th Ward Studio to producing tracks for Lecrae

HOUSTON, Texas, February 12, 2013—On Sunday afternoon, Houston songwriter/producer Billy Dorsey won a Grammy for his work on Lecrae’s chartbusting album Gravity, producing Higher featuring Tenth Avenue North with his team, thebridgelife. The 55th Grammys aired on CBS on February 10, 2013; the Best Gospel Album winner was announced during the pre-show webcast.

“Man, if there is anyone on Facebook who does not believe God is real and is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him, I am proof to the contrary,” Billy wrote on his Facebook wall moments after Lecrae’s album won the Grammy for Best Gospel Album. “God made me specific promises, which I share openly well in advance of Him bringing them to pass, so that all may know the power of the True and Living God. He is amazing, and if He can do this for me, He can and will do this for you. Please, I beseech you, give God a chance!”

Billy’s road success has been far from easy. His first record deal resulted in him dropping out of college only to be held hostage for 7 years to a recording contract that did not yield an album or the financial stability he desired. Dorsey ended up homeless, eventually sleeping in a rat-infested studio in Houston’s 5th Ward.
