Melodyvision's Offerings (It's Not Just A Recording Studio)
"Rodney Whittenberg is truly one of a kind, with so many gifts that it is unbelievable. He has the creativity and imagination to envision a project, and the skills and talents necessary to achieve and produce wondrous results. Can't speak enough about Rodney's gifts, and beyond that, he is a personable, charming, generous, loving spirit!"
—Phyllis Chapell, Singer/ Band Leader
"For 'Infested,' I wanted a score that managed to play it completely straight, yet still contained a sly wink to the audience that we're in on the gag. Rodney managed to take that virtually incomprehensible direction and craft a score that hit the nail on the head."
—Josh Olson, Academy Award-nominated writer of "History of Violence" and director of "Infested"
“I firmly applaud this film. But more so, I am grateful that the team that produced it was able to so vividly show the challenges undertaken by those who have committed their lives to helping others—and the empathy-transmitted pain many experience in the course of doing so. I would wish that my embracing them for what they have done and do might accelerate the recovery from the secondary trauma these healers have sustained in doing their work. Other than preventing trauma—to which we caregivers need to commit ourselves—the next-best we can do is to be there for those who so humanly need rescuing, caregiving, and help toward healing back to good health.”

We Stood Up: Reflections on the Civil Rights Movement. Never have I heard a more comprehensive and poignant sampling of speeches, conversations, testimonies, and poetry from a span of generations affected by the Civil Rights Movement. The moving words of MLK Jr., Maya Angelou, and John Lewis are interspersed with songs that will make you stop and listen. Among the best is the song, Love. Simple, beautiful, and important, especially now. The title song, We Stood Up, represents the story of Rosa Parks and the Greensboro Five with an excellent rap. I can just see students across the country learning the words, choreographing their own dances, and performing this with pride for their parents and communities.
