Producer/director Braddon Mendelson, a resident of Stevenson Ranch, is a 2008 Mom's Choice Awards recipient, a mark of distinction recognizing outstanding quality in family-friendly media.

Mendelson's children's DVD, "Cuckoo Concertos, Vol. 1," produced through his company, Noisivision Studios, earned the award.

"Cuckoo Concertos, Vol. 1" is a collection of fun and educational kids' videos, combining music and clever animations with performances by a cast of young children, known as "The NoisiKids." The DVD is available at many online retailers, including "I created these videos for my own child," said Mendelson. "I wanted something that would entertain him, as well as spark his imagination.

The performances are pure and unrehearsed, much like you hear when children get together and start singing spontaneously."

In addition to traditional kids' songs, such as "Old MacDonald" and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," are original selections, including "Raccoon Platoon" and a musical rendition of the "Pledge of Allegiance."

Interspersed are Animal Movie Minutes, educational and fun animal clips synchronized to various styles of music.

"In one of the Animal Movie Minutes we show a wild jackrabbit devouring desert flowers to the tune of 'Turkey in the Straw.' It's a lot of fun. While the DVD is intended for preschoolers and kindergartners, moms and dads will enjoy watching as well," Mendelson said.
