Experiencing Interruptions?


A semi animated story board(prototype) children’s(3-5 year old's) Christmas story(video/audio on dvd) told in rhyme with 5 songs. The story begins on Christmas Eve at a zoo that is at risk of being closed because of low attendance within a populated city. With the help of a reindeer (angel), 3 animals escape the zoo searching the city for Christmas attractions with crowds. Thinking by emulating what they see, they can attract the crowds to the zoo and save the zoo. But the reindeer knows that they will have to learn the meaning of Christmas to save the zoo. And in the end become part of a miracle. (Note to Viewers: For the adult viewers, I should explain a scene that was left out of the story. After Santa's scene, the animals come to a church that has 5 life sized scenes of the life of Jesus around the church. The 1’st is his birth, the 2’nd is his baptism, the 3’rd is him doing a miracle(walking on water), the 4’th is his crucifixion and the 5’th is his resurrection(floating in the air above the cave/tomb). This is where the animals learn the meaning of Christmas. Since this version of the story is for 3-5 year old's, I don’t think they need to know this part).
