George and Johanna visit the orphanage in Colombia that planted the idea for La Golda. These are the kids we hope to inspire and empower through the animation. When you see the kids faces you fall in love. We wanted to give them all a home. These little angels are all love and gratitude.
After visiting the orphanages in the morning, the team heads to the Production House where the animation is being developed. George is describing his vision to the team in Colombia. Characters are being discussed, storyboard is being developed and the animation team is coming together. Oh and check out the office for the La Golda Team. We are sooooo excited.
Starring: Roselyn Sanchez
Executive Producer: Judy Reyes
What is La Golda?
La Golda is an animation featuring an 8 year old orphan who has been bounced around from orphanage to orphanage. She has two passions: (1) Soccer (futbol), and (2) Building a better world for kids. La Golda and her friends are out to save the world! As of now, La Golda is a pilot in-the-making that we hope will one day turn into a full-blown series.
What is La Golda's mission?
Our mission is to encourage youth to care for others and take action. No matter where you are, how young you are, children can make a difference. The characters of La Golda represent children from all over the world, and the pilot will be produced in both English and Spanish for our multi-cultural audiences.
Meet the team:
La Golda, Our Captain
La Golda is the captain of her team, because she is a natural born leader in everything she does, including soccer, her favorite sport.
Santana, the Striker
Santana is an 8 year old with curly hair and a beautiful smile. His eyes read honesty and loyalty. He's the computer wiz of the group and speaks with a heavy New York accent. He wears the number 10.
Malcolm, the Defender
Malcolm is an 8 year old boy from China. He has short hair and big calves. He is incredibly intelligent and with that, uses his wit to strategize plays and situations with ease and a bit of humor. He wears the number 13.
Sonya, the Goalkeeper
Sonya is an 8 year old girl who hails from Russia and speaks with a native accent. She's tall and has beautiful blue eyes. Sonya loves fashion and rap music from other countries. She plays with the number 22.
Liam, the Mid-fielder
Liam is a 7 year old of British descent. He has sandy blond hair and his skinny legs help him move quickly and gain control of the ball in both offensive and defensive plays. Very Beckham. Although the youngest and most quiet one of the group, he shyly speaks up from time to time to share his expertise on soccer trivia and its history. He wears the number 5.
Meet The Producers...
George Valencia is the creator of La Golda. He is a well-established director, writer, and producer. Valencia has won numerous awards including SHOWTIME's "Best New Latin Filmmaker" in 2002 and "Best Film" at the HBO NY Latino Film Festival in 2005 for his feature "Glow Ropes." In addition to writing, directing, and producing films in Italy and Argentina, Valencia has worked with FIFA and produced soccer content for broadcast and web and worked with clubs such as Bayern Munich and AS Roma.
La Golda was inspired by the birth of George's daughter, Leila, four years ago and his visits to orphanages in Bogota, Colombia.

Where Will The Money Go?
We have worked and re-worked our characters, under mothers and experts feedback, to appeal to a young audience and we’re finally ready to start the next phase of our project which is casting and production. This is where we bring in the voices of the characters and the characters come to life!
So based on our calculations, and the truck load we’ve already spent, we need funds for the following:
Wait, So Why Would My Child Watch La Golda?
Children spend more time with media than any other activity, except for sleeping. Children are uniquely susceptible to the messages they get through the media. Therefore, media's unique power and reach can also be used to educate children and enrich their lives.
La Golda is age appropriate for 3-6 year olds. If you're not completely in love with La Golda yet, here are a few more reasons why you should be.
* Builds an understanding of basic vocabulary and numbers
* Creates school readiness- such as ABCs, simple sentence structure, basic numbers, & teaches basic scientific concepts (like gravity).
* Will teach social lessons like how to share and be a good friend
* Will build concept of time: past and present
* Encourages kids to accept and respect people who are different
* Promotes Doing Good and Team Work
* Showcases Positive Role Models
* Promotes Good Health
* Exhibits International Tones & Multi Cultural Themes
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Naturally, all micro-budget productions come with inherent risks and obstacles - we encountered several of them while developing this project thus far - but we've put together a dedicated, perseverant, problem-solving team that will not give up.
Once our finishing budget is funded, we are prepared to start locking down the cast & crew and start developing the animated characters. Meeting our funding goal will certainly help us complete our project.
But, just like every project has the potential for setbacks, we are preparing for whatever comes our way. Here’s a list of things that can go wrong …
* The animators might have technical issues.
* The voice overs might have to be re-recorded.
* The script might change several times.
* We may have to re-shoot the whole pilot for whatever reason.
* The Kickstarter website can go down from the millions and millions of visitors.
In all seriousness, the point is that production is always faced with challenges and risks, but we hope you will be patient with us as we navigate the intricate waters of the production world.
One important thing to note is that you must be over 18 or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to attend the launch party.
Now you know what your money can and will do. Without your support it will take us a little longer to get this animation made. Please help us bring La Golda to life by January. Your name can be on the credits and your children will know you played a big role in the making of their favorite show!
Thank you for your time and support and thank you for donating to our project - we hope you'll join us on this adventure! GOOOAAALLL!!!!
