Hi, I am Derek Savage, the Creator of Cool Cat. And thanks for looking at the “COOL CAT SAVES THE KIDS” KickStarter page.
For the past year I have been working on this movie and have been blessed with some Great Celebrities getting involved. I have produced approx. 50-Minutes of content and I hope you saw the Trailer in the above KickStarter video.
The “Cool Cat Saves the Kids” film addresses several griping subjects that affect our kids daily, and Cool Cat and his friends show children the cool way to handle the situation.
-- Bullying and Cyberbullying
-- Kids Gun Safety
-- Kids Exercise
Vivica A. Fox and Erik Estrada have been a blessing to this project and they have turned out to be some really cool people. Both Vivica and Erik love Cool Cat and they both love and care about helping kids. And Cool Cat loves to help kids!
The minimum runtime for a feature is 75-minutes, so we will make this film at least 80-minutes, which makes Moms happy. And I already have approx. 50-minutes of filmed content.
This project is a love of heart and we have financed it to this point, and now Cool Cat can use your help to complete the “Cool Cat Saves the Kids” Movie! The script is great and we have a great team in place who are ready to make this happen.
The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting is a painful tragedy that affected us all, and it made us think what can Cool Cat do to help the kids. So we jumped into production on a Kid’s Gun Safety film, “Cool Cat Finds a Gun”. Cool Cat and his friends find a gun and Cool Cat shows kids the right thing to do if they find a weapon or see someone at school that has one. This 22-minute film will be part of the “Cool Cat Saves the Kids” movie.
The “Cool Cat Finds a Gun” DVD was released 05-01-13 and the YouTube Trailer has received over 18,000 hits. The DVD also features kid’s gun safety PSA’s by Vivica A. Fox, Eric Roberts, and by the Chief of the Burbank Police Dept.
Kids, parents and teachers love Cool Cat, and we have done some school presentations where Cool Cat shows kids his gun safety film. It’s like magic the way kids are attracted to this character.
Cool Cat is completely different from any character out there. Best of all his stories are positive for children. Since a lot of TV and Music just doesn’t send the best of message to kids anymore, that keeps me motivated to make these projects.
Many people ask how Cool Cat came to be, and Derek originally created Cool Cat in his childhood as an imaginary friend. Then from living and working in Hollywood for several years, Derek saw the need for a positive kids character and brought Cool Cat to life by writing the first book. Plus the Cool Cat books are bilingual in ENGLISH and SPANISH to have more educational value and appeal to a larger audience. Cool Cat also participates in several charity and police events!
You’ll notice in the Trailer that Cool Cat gets to be in the
world famous Hollywood Parade. Cool Cat
was in the 2011 and 2012 Hollywood Parades, so I incorporated some parade
footage into the film. Cool Cat and the
kids have a great time in the Hollywood Christmas Parade!
