“If you believe, you can hear him speak.”
This is about a film “The Magic Snowman on Indiegogo“. The original Magic Snowman was made in 1989 and was seen by twenty million children in the US alone. It is a classic children’s story, a great holiday staple. Distributed by Miramax & Buena Vista International, the film was shot on location in the Yugoslav Alps. Lumiukko, the magic snowman, was a product of the collective imagination of the crew who had a great time building it from real snow. In fact, throughout the filming, Lumiukko melted a few times, but he was rebuilt and survived through the end of the shoot.
Today’s new filmmaking techniques allow for more freedom in making our snowman alive, warmer, friendlier, and ultimately, more effective in getting his message to children that magic makes everything possible
In the REDUX version of the film, Pavlina is planning to add visual effects to make him smile, wink, frown, laugh, cry, and have a myriad of other emotions to entertain and engage his young viewers. A new music score and a fresh re-edit will make the film more palatable for today’s young audiences.
The original film was distributed only on VHS; this updated version will be available on Blu-Ray/DVD allowing for an unprecedented reach that will make the film available worldwide. The goal of this campaign is to raise the necessary $50,000 to score, animate, and re-edit the film.
The original Magic Snowman was endorsed by UNICEF and 3% of the proceeds were donated to the organization to help children worldwide and the commitment to Unicef will apply to the redux. Your contribution to this campaign will make also make you virtual ambassadors for UNICEF and the organization’s causes.
