A Christmas Star Indiegogo Launches

Posted on 09th October 2014 |

Cinemagic's A Christmas Star, Northern Ireland's and Ireland's first Christmas feature film for young people is going into production in three weeks! An exciting new Indiegogo Project  to support it has gone live today!

‘A Christmas Star’ is an extremely ambitious project and the key focus is the experiences and memories that it will create for everyone involved. With your help we can ensure that the young people involved have the very best training. This means that every donation towards this project will enhance their experience and their ability levels, leaving them with a lasting memory of the project and a solid skill base with which to continue their education. But you can't fill an electricity generator on goodwill alone, and that's why we need your help to fund this production and bring "A Christmas Star" to the screen!

‘A Christmas Star’ is a feature length film set in a picturesque village in Northern Ireland. It tells the heart-warming story of Noelle, a spirited and special 9-year old. Her story is a journey of self-discovery, faith, doubt and loyalty as she fights to instill the true meaning of Christmas.This hugely exciting project will be the first of its kind and will showcase young talent to a global audience. ‘A Christmas Star’ will be the first production to combine culture, arts, politics, and skills development, and to broadcast simultaneously on BBC Northern Ireland and UTV.

On hand to help the young people involved with the film making process are a host of Academy, BAFTA and Tony award-winning professionals. The project includes a voiceover provided by Liam Neeson, input from award winning Producers Iain Smith & Gareth Ellis-Unwin and was launched by Lord Julian Fellowes.
