The Magic of Cinema….
As the snow and cold weather is upon us, one thing I often see is a snowman in a school yard or on a freshly snow covered lawn of a warm home. If we began to journey to our younger years, snowman are almost like magical beings that look after us, our little protectors. They are all uniquely creative and individual in their own ways. Cineplex offers us a little short film of a lively little girl who builds a snowman. This snowman magically comes alive and entertains the little girl while creating silhouette stories that come to life on the backyard fence. She is able to enter the magical world of cinema through the snowman….the short film is entitled “Lily and the Snowman” Lets look at this short films design…..
I don’t go to the movies often, but when I do I love to watch everything during the pre-show. Cineplex offers great little short films and maybe the odd tear jerker’s. Most short films invoke ways we can all connect to them. “Lily and the Snowman” brings us back to the relationship we had as children. The snowman being the source of our inspiration and magic…. sometimes as we grow up we might loose our inspiration and creativity becoming older, having a job and moving on with our life….but this short film almost reconnects us back to that magical place that inspires us. It’s also a reminder that we should take time out of our lives for things that matter…..Growing up doesn’t always have to be full of GROWN up responsibilities that may overwhelm us….take a step back….rekindle with loved ones, your family….watch a movie, or even spark your creative side and go outside, enjoy this weather and build a snowman.
