About

Pioneer Aquarian Magic, (PAM) Inc., a female and minority owned corporation, established in the Commonwealth of Virginia, in March 2015, by Owner Pam Malik, author of book "Maan Singh - The Wolf-Child," Trafford Publishing, 2003, is adapting the book into a full length feature film.

The book, "Maan Singh - The Wolf-Child" is a true story about a young boy who was abducted as an infant and raised by wolves for about 5 years. This book tells the story of this child as he was "rescued" from the wolves by the author's father, Harris Fulton David, and brought back to civilization. He walked on all fours, similar to the wolves. He howled at the moon. He ate like an animal. He wore no clothes. He was a Wolf-Child.

The movie will be unique in that never before has a feature film focused on a rescued child - abducted by wolves, returned to civilization and the humanitarian attempts to re-indoctrinate him to a "normal" human lifestyle.

The underlying theme, one of many, is the treatment, or more accurately - the mistreatment of children cast aside by families, the community and society in general. Our movie will depict the heart wrenching drama of being taken away from ones family - the struggle to survive in an unknown environment - rejected by one’s own family - ridiculed for being "different." There are lessons to be learned, however raw the lesson may be, to improve the welfare of lost or forgotten children... from days gone by... to the modern day tragedies heard in the news too frequently - the child locked up and raised in a closet or basement - the children chained to a bed.

The "Good Samaritan," the author's father, has a lesson for us - we all need to step up and do what we, as individuals and as society in general (worldwide), can do to help those who cannot help themselves.

For these reasons, Pioneer Aquarian Magic, (PAM) Inc., the makers of this film, firmly believe this project merits the funding requested to bring this humanitarian film to the silver screen.

Your support is needed to help us produce a first rate feature film which will strike a chord within each of us -- “What if that was my child?” Your heart will be lifted when you find that there are still people in this world with a good heart and a willingness to step out and help even one child who may have been otherwise lost to us all.

All donations, however big or small, will be truly appreciated. You will have the satisfaction of knowing you contributed in a big way to making this film happen… you will have taken action to raise the awareness much needed on behalf of lost or forgotten children.

Risks and challenges

As with all major projects - risks are always present. Mitigating, or managing, those risks are what separate successful projects from those who did not properly anticipate such unexpected issues.

Production of a 90 minute feature film requires expenditures for personnel, such as management staff (Executive Producer, Associate Producers, Film Producer, Accountant, and other essential staff), actors and extras. The risk associated with staff is that we are all human, therefore, subject to illnesses, accidents, family (caretakers), and other unknown circumstances.

To prepare for these potential challenges we are building a deep bench of associates (as in a winning baseball team depends on its bench for support). We plan to team with a seasoned film production company; continue to establish a network of top notch staff in every field; and, apply lessons learned through industry forums and from successful leaders in their respective field.

Equipment and services of specialty firms would be required to produce the film. Major equipment needed, includes, but is not limited to: high quality cinematography equipment, tripods, lighting, generators for remote location shooting, backup batteries, tape and other such items.

Risks in this area may stem from non-performance of services, equipment break-down, weather related delays (snowstorms, floods, tornadoes, etc.), labor disputes, political or social unrest. Being aware that these circumstances may impact our production - we hope for the best but prepare for the worst with Plans "B" and "C" in our hip pocket.

Specialty firms would be companies handling such tasks as: Animation, Editing, Sound Effects, camera crew, insurance companies, permits from federal, state and local agencies, and food services. These are the major types of firms required to produce this film. Each has its own unique risk. For example, requesting special permits to film on location may take longer than anticipated due to circumstances beyond our control - new forms or procedures, government reorganization, jurisdictional disputes are just a few of the unknowns that may crop up.

Thinking ahead and preparing alternatives to any of these challenges is what will allow our production team to keep moving forward and complete this worthwhile film on time and within budget.
