Producer/Director Steve Thomson is proud to announce that his company Backstage Productions International/Lydia Productions is one of this year’s recipients of a prestigious Accolade Award in The Category of Children/Family Programming and Voice-over Talent (Steve Thomson).
The Story of Lydia has been a labor of love for Thomson and all of those who participated in the project.
It takes a lot of dedicated people to put a production like this together and to have won an Accolade Award in two categories makes all the hard work worthwhile. We share this Award with all the talented people who worked on the film, particularly Mike del Mundo (Art Director/Animator), Paul Bay (Editor/Animator), George Seara (Audio), Avi Schwarzman (Associate Producer), Selwyn Harris (Promotion Manager), Stefanos Karabekos (The Symphony Orchestra of Canada), David Bacha (Lyricist) and especially Brigitte Manuceau for writing such inspiring songs with such beautiful melodies.
The Story of Lydia, a musical produced in the style of an animated fairy tale, has been broadcast on CTS Television in Canada. The story has been packaged for retail as a Hybrid Media Collection in an elaborate DigiPack, which contains an easy to read 52 page book illustrated in full color, a DVD featuring the long-form production with optional sub-titles designed for learning to read and speak new languages, a sing-along (Karaoke) feature, the six part serialized version of the program plus a read-along CD with separate music tracks including a bonus track from The Symphony Orchestra of Canada. The program is currently available in English and French with Arabic and Hebrew in production with other language translations to follow.
Thomson will be attending MIPCOM in Cannes seeking Distribution for available markets.
