Development Pitch

Whilst this is primarily for children, its intention is for universal appeal. This is one thrilling and incredible fun packed adventure. The lead character is a very strong and dynamic angel who knows exactly what the children and in turn, their parents, need to help them rediscover playfulness, light-heartedness and most of all complete happiness and joy. There are many fabulous and unusual encounters with various beings, including fairies, elves, a choir of bird gymnasts and a most unusual food party, that could project highly visual scenes on screen, and so there is a lot of scope here for it to translate well as a film or series. Many of these scenes are inventive and imaginative. There are also meaningful messages that have been carefully woven into the story to add depth. The screen is where it can really come alive with its vibrancy and creative expression.
