Melodity Productions

We're human. We're odd. We're less pretentious than this stilted intro makes us sound.
We produce media that gives voice to the lesser-explored oddities and fantastical fantasies that swirl around in our brains.
We fill needs in our community and world that make them better.
And we can't wait to show you something new, cool, and probably delightfully weird. It's what we do.

Our work

EYSHET F---ING CHAYIL (A WOMAN OF F---ING VALOR): Premiering at the 2023 Hollywood Fringe Festival!
Show dates: 6/4 (preview), 6/11, 6/13, 6/18, 6/21
Eyshet F***ing Chayil tickets and info
A young woman reconnects with her Jewish identity in Korea and returns to the US to find a partner and build a Jewish family. A decade later, she finds herself with neither—and pulled between religious and secular worlds that both don’t have a place for her. What is she doing wrong…and can she fix it before she runs out of time for both for good?
Written and performed by Melanie Ehrlich
An unorthodox exploration of life as a modern Jewish woman, Melodity Productions was 1 of 10 recipients worldwide of the IGDA Foundation's inaugural Diverse Game Developers Fund Prototype Grant to prototype Frum Girl Adventures—the first video game by and about Jewish women.
Three friends go out in search of the grave of the local legend, Isabelle Wakeworth. When Isabelle then comes to life, she relentlessly stalks the friends one by one in this short animated horror film. Created for Dead Lantern Productions' "Chills Down Your Spine" horror anthology, now available on Amazon.

By-the-book Lieutenant Bananagan and heart-on-his-sleeve Sergeant Beartucky navigate their friction and friendship while doing what they do best.
Animated 11-minute comedy series, in development
If you had seven minutes with someone you’ve loved and lost, how would you spend it?
Set to the titular classical piece by Camille Saint-Saëns and inspired by true life events, Danse Macabre explores the rawness and complexities of grief, a bittersweet reminder that we are the only ones who can give ourselves closure.

Melodity Collective

The community behind all of our work is the Melodity Collective, a creative incubator and community of people from all backgrounds working to fill gaps and needs in our community not addressed by more traditional means. Some of our initiatives include:

Melodity Presents
A workshop and performance series in which creators identify what makes them unique, creative powerhouses, unleash their voices, and share their stories with the world, culminating in one-of-a-kind performances at some of the most unique venues and festivals in the country. Directed by Melodity founder Melanie Ehrlich, storytellers have showcased their work off-Broadway at NYC’s Actors Temple Theatre, online through the Atlanta Fringe Festival, on stage, screen, radio, and beyond, with these performances serving as launchpads for careers in film, TV, animation, and video games.
Visit the Melodity Presents site to learn more.

NoHo Community Shabbat
"More than the Jews have kept Shabbat, Shabbat has kept the Jews."
In 2022, Melodity founder Melanie Ehrlich started the NoHo Community Shabbat series, a free monthly outdoor community Shabbat dinner for local Jewish folks of all backgrounds to meet, eat, relax, and unplug from the demands of the rest of the week. With work not permitted on Shabbat, it's an opportunity to connect with each other not as "contacts" but genuinely on a personal level. All are welcome whether Jewish, Jew-"ish", or Jewcurious.
For more information, email nohocommunityshabbat at gmail dot com.

Community Resource List
A free, public resource list to help creative folks of all stripes--from free and low-cost opportunities for creative and performing arts training to help and resources for groceries, health care, entertainment, and more.
