Do you want to be able to make a difference for child survivors of war? By supporting ‘Mila’, you can.
‘Mila’ is a CG animated short film, which has been developed using the most modern techniques of digital animation. It’s been produced by the largest remote animation crew to date – 250 artists from over 25 countries – all of whom have volunteered their time and talent to help make ‘Mila’ happen.
The brainchild of Cinzia Angelini, who has worked as an animator and story artist in feature films for over twenty years, ‘Mila’ carries a heavy theme, focusing on the under-reported collateral damage of War – civilian children. Angelini, who is the writer and director of ‘Mila’, has based the film on a survivor’s firsthand experiences as a child during the the terrible bombings of World War Two. The survivor in question – her own mother, Giovanna.
Cinzia, who has worked on films including ‘Spider-Man 2’, ‘Prince Of Egypt’, ‘Eldorado’, ‘Bolt’, and ‘Minions’, among others, started working on ‘Mila’ by herself, back in 2007, but rallied the support of many more amazing artists when she shared the moving and inspiring story behind the film. “Official” production began in 2010, with a small group of friends, who have now grown to become The Mila Family, whose passion, talent and time has been poured into the challenge of creating this beautiful film.
With a year left to complete this film, they need your help.
Today ‘Mila’ have launched their Indiegogo campaign. They’re aiming to raise $60,000 (US) but even the smallest donation can help. You can find more details about it here.
