EKC PR Announces Representation of Devan Kline’s Burn Boot Camp™, Created to Help Mothers Build Happier, Healthier Lives

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 3, 2016) – EKC PR is excited to announce that 28-year-old Devan Kline, founder and CEO of the Burn Boot Camp™ franchise, has been added to their roster of clientele. Burn Boot Camp is dedicated to providing a ‘fit community’ for active mothers to achieve happiness and optimal physical and mental health.

Devan’s entrepreneurial journey first began in professional sports. After devoting his youth to the pursuit of health and fitness, obtaining two Certified Personal Training Certificates (NASM and NCCPT) and a Fitness Specific Nutrition Certification (FNS), Devan secured a degree in Financial Planning from Central Michigan University. Upon graduating, he embarked on a Minor League baseball career with the San Francisco Giants and lived with a host family that gave him a home away from home.

“My host-mom had several children of her own but took it upon herself to care for me and three other guys,” Devan recalls. “Like many mothers, I saw how she neglected herself in order to care for the family. One morning, we had a conversation about nutrition and fitness, and together we helped her lose 45 pounds in 5-6 months. It was a total, complete transformation!”

This firsthand experience awakened Devan’s desire to help mothers everywhere. Today, the Burn Boot Camp franchise operates 38 awarded locations across the United States and plans to open over 1,000 more in the next six years. Their full range of classes include the core Burn Boot Camp curriculum, Burn YogaMen’s CampRapid Fat Loss, and a Fit Mom Ambassador Program that allows motivated members to join the team.

“We’re passionate about what we do and about helping moms feel better about themselves, get more rest, and increase their quality of life,” says Devan. “If you’re looking for a community of healthy, like-minded people, Burn Boot Camp is your answer.”

Be sure to join the Burn Boot Camp movement on FacebookTwitterPeriscope, & Instagram!

Nancy Painter Home

LOS ANGELES, CA (Dec 22, 2015) – Senator Dianne Feinstein was recently honored with the 2015 “Mike & Betty Weinstock Helping Hands Award” on behalf of The Nancy Painter Home for Mothers with Children, a Los Angeles-based transitional housing program devoted to serving the needs of homeless single mothers and their kids.

“More children are homeless in this country than ever before, and the problem is particularly acute in California. Families are living in motels or doubling up with acquaintances because they have nowhere else to go,” said Senator Feinstein. “Organizations like the Nancy Painter Home are essential to helping mothers and their children get housed and build a better future. I’m honored to receive the Helping Hands Award and look forward to working with the Nancy Painter Home and other community groups to end family homelessness.”

In partnership with the Salvation Army, The Nancy Painter Home was founded by three-time Emmy-winning choreographer Walter Painter, who created the organization as a safe haven in honor of his late mother. The sole purpose of the non-profit is to provide a stable and loving environment for single moms who are raising their children sans a proper place to call home. Those fortunate to live under the care of the program are provided with time, support and resources necessary to obtain vocational training, employment, and permanent housing. The Nancy Painter Home is completely volunteer driven, with all proceeds serving their annual operations.

“We were 100% confident in our decision to select Senator Feinstein as this year’s recipient of the ‘Helping Hands Award’,” said Walter Painter. “She has demonstrated great capability in confronting the issues our organization cares deeply about and there was just no other choice as perfect as her!”

Those wishing to apply for housing and care at The Nancy Painter Home may contact the Glendale Salvation Army Branch at 818.246.5586. To support and contribute to The Nancy Painter Home’s efforts, please visit their website.

Allan Felder

Reservoir Acquires Catalog of Allan Felder, Writer-Producer for
The O’Jays, Eddie Kendricks, The Delfonics, & More

NEW YORK, NY (December 8, 2015) Reservoir is pleased to announce the acquisition of the soul and R&B catalog of late songwriter-producer Allan Felder.  The purchase sees Reservoir add over 350 Felder titles from the 1960s to present to its multi-genre portfolio.

With repertoire performed by legendary artists like Ben E. King, Eddie Kendricks, Blue Magic, and The Whispers, Allan Felder’s works are included among some of R&B’s most memorable releases.  The O’Jays’ Survival, which includes the Felder-penned “Let Me Make Love To You”, hit #1 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart and was certified Gold in 1975; Lou Rawls’ All Things In Time, including the Felder title “Time”, went Platinum in 1977; The Whispers’ Felder song “I’ve Got A Feeling” was a top 5 single at Disco in 1976; and The Trammps’ Disco Inferno album, boasting Felder’s “Don’t Burn No Bridges”, famously went Gold in 1978.  Felder’s work is emblematic of the famed ‘Philadelphia Sound’ era in R&B, which he fostered as a writer for celebrated record labels Philly International and Salsoul, as well as the lesser-known but equally impactful soul music label Philly Groove Records, which Reservoir acquired in 2012.

Felder’s works have seen samples and interpolations propel his past hits into the present, to additional success. Highlights include the use of Keni Burke’s “Risin’ to the Top” in the Nas track “Hey Nas”, from his 2002 #1 R&B/Hip-Hop Album God’s Son, and again in the 2003 LL Cool J single “Paradise”; The Trammps’ “Rubber Band” in The Game and 50 Cent’s 2005 #1 R&B/Hip-Hop Song, “Hate It Or Love It”; and Eddie Kendricks’ “Goin’ Up In Smoke” in Mariah Carey’s “Meteorite”, included on her 2014 #1 R&B/Hip-Hop album, The Elusive Chanteuse.

Reservoir SVP of Creative and Business Development Faith Newman worked with the surviving Felder family to arrange the acquisition, stating, “It’s incredible to add another historic catalog to the Reservoir family.  Allan Felder and his peers laid the groundwork for contemporary R&B, which remains massively influential to this day.  It’s an honor to have the opportunity to uphold the legacy and longevity of these works just as they deserve to be upheld.”

The Felder acquisition sees Reservoir close a year of notable deals and signings, with additions including internationally acclaimed hip-hop artist Joey Bada$$, breakout artist-production team WatchTheDuck, and the works of Southern rock band Molly Hatchet, among others.

Spoiled Fashionz

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 27, 2015) – SPOILED!, which initially launched online in 2012, is now a successful storefront on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles! The charming boutique, boasting an electric SL 300 Mercedes suspended from the ceiling, as well as a vintage Ms. Pac-Man machine for ’80s enthusiasts to enjoy, offers exclusive, hand-picked selections of stylish, upscale resale kids clothing, shoes and accessories.

Founder CeCe Hendriks was originally inspired to embark on SPOILED! while traveling through Europe, where she witnessed firsthand the exquisite ways European families dressed their children in designer clothing. Drawing on her intimate circle of fellow socialites back home, CeCe has since amassed a stunning collection of brands such as Burberry, Chloé, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Junior Gaultier, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons, Christian Dior, and more, so that girls and boys can dress to impress!

“My 11-year-old son Jordan is my real inspiration,” says CeCe. “I’ve always dressed him to perfection so he would understand the power of a first impression. When he outgrew his clothes, many that he never even wore, I started giving them away and parents were falling over themselves. I saw the opportunity to help families enjoy the luxury of high-end fashion without the high cost, and the business followed!”

Back in 2013, CeCe (alongside Sean “Diddy” Combs) appeared on Kris Jenner’s talk show, Kris, to promote the online launch of SPOILED!. The segment included a special children’s fashion show, which CeCe plans to continue to produce.

“These runway shows keep the public informed of why children’s fashion can be something to take seriously,” CeCe explains.

To help educate her clients, CeCe has also created a series of How-To Videos, available for viewing on the SPOILED! website, which cover a range of topics such as outfit combinations, how to match colors, the latest trends, and other insider knowledge.

SPOILED! is located at 8178 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90046. The shop welcomes consignments of 100% authentic high-end designer clothing, shoes and accessories in new or in excellent used condition. If you are not in the Los Angeles area and unable to visit the store, you may still consign here.

Be sure to follow SPOILED! on FacebookTwitterPinterest and Instagram for exclusive deals and fashion news!

Funny Zoo

LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwired – Oct 29, 2015) – EKC PR client Funny Zoo‘s playful, public art exhibit and cultural initiative offers city dwellers a truly unique experience! Created to promote awareness of biodiversity and conservation of the Earth’s endangered species and environment, Funny Zoo features an art collection filled with hundreds of sponsored life-sized animal sculptures that will be painted and adorned by California artists, and businesses. Set to appear throughout Los Angeles County in early 2016, Funny Zoo is encouraging everyone to participate and enjoy the fun!

In 2013, Funny Zoo debuted in Marseilles, France under the supervision of Bernard Scoffié & Jean-Fabrice Brunel, founders of the Malibu-based French Pacific Events (FPE). Hailed as “a unique public platform at the intersection of art and community,” each of FPE’s initiatives are generated to raise funds and awareness for charitable organizations.

“We’ve enjoyed bringing Funny Zoo to citizens of France and other European countries,” says Bernard Scoffié. “When people get to see the sculptures in person, they’re rewarded with a sense of awe at each animal’s inherent majesty. We now cannot wait to bring Funny Zoo to the United States!”

Funny Zoo is currently obtaining sponsorships (private individual, small business, large corporation, community organization, etc.) who will fund the customization of their animal sculpture in return for brand exposure and increased media visibility. Once the exhibit closes, sponsors will have the opportunity to either keep their artistic work for personal use, or allow it to be included in a culminating auction where proceeds will be given to a fundamental animal charity. For more details on sponsorships, visit here.

Funny Zoo is also issuing a “Call To Artists” where established/emerging artists interested in designing and decorating an animal sculpture may submit an application for the chance at becoming a part of Funny Zoo’s artist catalogue. The submission deadline is December 1, 2015.

To keep up with exciting company news and updates, be sure to visit Funny Zoo on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Ultimate Immunity

LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwired – Oct 27, 2015) – Elson Haas, MD, a leader in the field of nutritional medicine for 40 years and recognized as an early pioneer of New Medicine, has released his 10th book, Ultimate Immunity (co-written with Sondra Barrett, PhD), through Rodale Inc. Dr. Haas has authored works in the fields of health, nutrition and detoxification, and is working on expanding three of his best-sellers — Staying Healthy with the Seasons (1981, 2004), Staying Healthy with Nutrition (1992, 2006), and The Detox Diet (1994, 2012).

Dr. Haas’ books reveal the basic links between diet and a commonsense lifestyle. Ultimate Immunity offers easy explanations of the immune system, how it gets off balance, and provides a multi-faceted approach to healing immune conditions (repeated infections, inflammation, allergies, autoimmune problems) with nutrition and recipes, stress management, and energetic physical exercises known as the “Cool Down Inflammation Program.” Written for anyone interested in keeping healthy, the goal of Ultimate Immunity is to empower readers with proven strategies that are proactive and easy to implement.

Dr. Haas practices a unique model of natural health care called NEW Medicine (a fusion of Natural, Eastern, and Western treatments). This philosophy blends holistic and alternative techniques (which are now part of mainstream, integrative medical practice) drawn from the best of each field. He educates his patients to stay healthy by keeping in sync with the natural seasonal cycles, proposing an approach that encourages “lifestyle first, natural therapies next, drugs last.”

Dr. Haas received his medical degree from the University of Michigan and completed his internship at Highland Hospital in Oakland, CA. He studied many healing modalities to develop his unique blend of medicine before founding Preventive Medical Center of Marin (PMCM) in San Rafael, CA, which remains an active Bay Area practice, and Seasons Studios, his education product development company.

Ervin Peter and Masiela Lusha

LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwired – Oct 13, 2015)2 Le Jit Productions, an innovative and dynamic new production company, has just enlisted television/film actress Masiela Lusha (George Lopez Show) as their spokesperson to assist with the company’s nationwide social media hunt for Hollywood’s next great leading lady. The search takes the form of an acting contest, in which aspiring actresses are invited to submit audition videos for a chance to win a $50,000 grand prize and be offered the opportunity to star in 2 Le Jit Production’s 2016 feature film Starfall, written, produced and directed by company CEO Ervin Peter. Contest rules and terms are available here.

“Masiela Lusha was specifically chosen as our spokesperson for her artistic expertise and industry experience,” says Ervin Peter. “I’m very excited to have her help in evaluating contestant’s auditions and to find that one untapped talent who deserves a breakout role in my film.”

The first round of the contest has now begun during which aspiring actresses (18+) in the United States and Canada may submit a set of three self-recorded video audition monologues via the 2 Le Jit Productions’ website. Contestants will be required to send in a performance from each of the following classic stage plays: Three Sisters (Anton Chekhov), A Doll’s House (Henrik Ibsen) and Miss Julie (August Strindberg). The monologues are now available at Facebook.com/2LeJitProductions.

In their search for the next great undiscovered talent, 2 Le Jit Productions’ use of an online acting contest, together with social media and celebrity guidance, represents a radical departure from the traditional Hollywood casting process.
“Starfall is going to require a new type of actress to play the lead — perhaps unlike anyone we’ve ever seen before,” says Ervin Peter. “And using a conventional casting approach would only get us conventional results.”

Masiela Lusha states, “The film industry has entered a new era of casting with 2 Le Jit Productions’ ‘Starfall Search’ and it is an absolute dream to embrace the process alongside Ervin Peter. Together we will discover talent from across the country and grant individuals the right to pursue their Hollywood goals through social media. I feel this will redefine filmmaking and it is exciting to be in the front row as we progress.”
