Press Releases



CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – February 15, 2012 - Paladin Media Group and Educational Media Consulting are pleased to announce the

launch of an exciting new series for Discovery Education to be produced and filmed here in Charlottesville.
Jerry and Maya Drake of Educational Media Consulting have partnered with Paladin Media Group to create a series of one hundred episodes for the Discovery Education High School Science “Tech Book.” These three to five minute online films will focus on high school science, specifically Physics, Biology, Chemistry, and Earth/Space Science. A team of area high school science teachers brainstormed with the producers on the best approach to teaching good science to high school students through video.

These teachers include Tony Borash, Diane Clark, Jamie Hedman, Jeff Prillaman, Frances Racette, and Mary Saville.
Paladin Media Group has reached out to the University of Virginia for experts in the various science fields to use as on-screen talent. Through Sherri Winston at the UVA Television News Office, Paladin worked with Louis Bloomfield, Professor and Associate Chair of Physics at the University of Virginia, who starred in the pilot episode. The pilot has been enthusiastically received and

Discovery Education has given the greenlight to begin production on the series.
Over 20 local individuals have been brought on to assist with this project including producers, editors, crew, and support staff.

Production will begin with 26 episodes of Biology featuring UVA Professors Douglas Taylor, Edmund “Butch” Brodie, and Assistant Professor Sarah Kucenas.

Paladin and Educational Media Consulting look forward to working with so many experienced and gifted educators through the course of this project with Discovery Education. Production of the series should continue through August 2012.

Paladin Pictures, Inc. and the Paladin Media Group are committed to the creation, production, distribution, and promotion of

redemptive entertainment and educational media.
