The trio has worked on many productions together. Noel, Charlie, and Jimmy received Telly awards and a Davey for their work on a documentary called "The Bigger Picture" about Leonard Horwin, a lawyer, diplomat, Superior Court Judge, and Mayor/Councilman for Beverly Hills. "One of my biggest thrills was doing my dad's life story and playing a central role in publishing his book," said Noel.

Charlie and Jimmy are assisting Noel on his current production "Life in California" which airs throughout San Diego and Riverside Counties. "Charlie and Jimmy have almost too many film and music credits to count," said Horwin, owner of 4H Productions.
