Oogies Loves Kids Movie Labor Day Release & the New Direction and Vision of Kenn Viselman


Oogies Loves Mom Blogger Event in Hollywood

Rarely do media, including women bloggers like me that regular review feature films, get the chance to preview a major movie six weeks in advance of opening to the public. Yet that's exactly what happened earlier this week when I had the opportunity to attend a special event just for mommy bloggers and their young children at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood to view The Oogies Loves in the Big Balloon Adventure which is set for national release this Labor Day Weekend.

What a unique hands-on experience to screen this feature film. First our select group of Southern California mom bloggers was treated to a healthy light breakfast then we re escorted into Raleigh's Charlie Chaplin Theater for an in-person presentation by Kenn Viselman the mastermind who brought Teletubbies to critical acclaim on PBS here in the U.S. several decades ago. A question and answer session followed to further flush out the intriguing logic behind this project.

Then the children, mostly toddlers and preschoolers who had been entertained outside at a supervised arts and crafts table, joined us in the theater for an interactive movie experience like I've never seen before. 

Stay tuned for more about this tomorrow. I'll be elaborating upon Viselman's vision as told to our mom blog group and why this movie could quite possibly turn out to be a landmark picture for the 2 to 7 kids age group. I'll also be sharing my preview experience, particularly my observations about how the kids reacted to everything that was going on up on the big screen. I'll also be sharing additional pictures I took at this studio event. 

A separate full length movie critique will be published on MommyBlogExpert in late August after the embargo is lifted shortly before the film opens.
