A new animated Children's series that teaches social, self help, educational, healthy living skills, and how to play with others.
Puz™ Knows How® is a multi-media program designed to teach children a variety of social skills, self care skills, lessons in independence, and basic academic skills.
Through our test screenings, we know that general education children, as well as their parents and teachers, will benefit from the program. Furthermore, since the lessons are based on the same social and self care lessons used in classrooms to benefit children on the Autism Spectrum, Puz™ Knows How® will help the growing population of children diagnosed daily.
Puz™ Knows How® has the chance to bring all of this to families everywhere through international distributor partnerships, but we simply need help.
Primarily, our request for help is focused on completing a 60-minute Puz™ Knows How® pilot, which is the minimum content requirement distributors of Video-On-Demand and/or DVD media will accept to begin the distribution process.
However, if through your generosity, we are able to go above and beyond our campaign goal, what we plan to do with the surplus is to continue developing as much content for Puz™ Knows How® as we can.
This includes more e-books, educational mobile apps, offering helpful articles and videos for parents and teachers on our website, translating our material into multiple languages, and, of coarse, more Puz™ Knows How® videos that kids can laugh and learn with everyday.
We currently have a total of 26 stories that we have scripted for video. With 26 shows, we can get to another goal of ours, which is to get this show on TV so that children may experience the fun of learning with Puz, without having to purchase a DVD or rent it through Video-On-Demand.
If we are able to produce all 26 episodes, we have had offers to broadcast and distribute the show on television markets around the world and in multiple languages.
Of coarse, producing that many episodes will be expensive. We estimate that each episode costs approximately $189,000.00. Therefore a full season of Puz™ Knows How® (26 episodes) would cost a little over $4.9 million. In comparison to other children’s educational programming, like Sesame Street which cost approximately $8 million to produce the first season in 1969 (about $48 million in today’s standards), Puz™ Knows How® is relatively cheap to produce.
Really, it all starts with your help, which we greatly appreciate.
