Las Vegas, NV, USA – Watermelon Magic is a tender film about young Sylvie who sees the magic in growing her own food and sharing it with others. The film is great for audiences of all ages. The film colorfully highlights Sylvie’s passion to grow watermelons from seed-to-flower-to-fruit.
The plants ‘magically’ grow and come to life with special time-lapse sequences created from more than 200,000 still images animated to motion – an expert technique which gives this film a unique and dynamic style.
The film explores the elementary scientific concepts of the life cycle of plants. Through humor and drama, audiences experience the challenges and rewards of farm-to-table and community supported agriculture.
