Award winning TV series Team Franco with global distributor DreamWorks Classics launches crowdfunding campaign.
Manchester, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/29/2013 -- For years Marina Nicholas thought she was in my dream job working in the financial sector, but she was wrong. It was not until Marina had a near death experience that her mind woke up to its creative abilities. She came alive like never before. While in hospital recovering Marina wondered what life was about and pondered why she was given a second chance for a reason. Life seemed to be in sharp focus with greater clarity. One day when Marina’s 4 year old son was watching TV with his Formula One fanatical father, asking ‘Why is daddy so excited? Can I play? It came to her, an influx of the most intense creativity I had ever experienced.
That afternoon Marina spent time explaining the global nature of motor racing to her son. Formula One, and many other motorsports, follow the adventures of a group of race cars that travel to race in the most amazing places. The race teams travel to faraway places like Australia and China. They race in diverse conditions from the tropical rains of Brazil to the hot sandy deserts of the Middle East. At this stage, he eyes widened. Her son was desperate to hear more stories. We visited a map in the study to show him where the cars were racing. Each week he excitedly sat in front of the TV waiting to find out where the race teams were and ran to the map to stick a pin in the country. ‘Mummy, what is it like there?’
Marina’s adventure had begun! Like a switch, her brain woke up! She voraciously penned ideas. Throughout many nights she awoke with character ideas and pictures of the fantasy raceworld, all-bursting to leap from my mind onto the page. Marina felt alive! The near death experience had woken up a sleeping giant. I felt on purpose filled with passion and enthusiasm about the potential to inspire young children around the world. The Team Franco television series brings the BIG world down to knee high level and introduces children to the amazing sights, sounds and sensations of six continents using a cool racing concept as the vehicle of FUN.
This Kickstarter project will only be funded if at least £1,163,837 is pledged by Monday Apr 22, 7:44am MDT.
