FAIRY TALES WITH A TWIST is a series of short films which will revitalize the ancient art of story telling by presenting classic fairy tales from a completely fresh point of view. ROAM Pictures is extremely excited to launch this not-for-profit series in order to reach out to a younger audience. Our goal is to rework, retell and modernize well known and lesser known fairy tales in a way that will resonate with the young and old.
The Cinderella campaign is dedicated to raising funds for the production of our second instillation of “Fairy Tales with a Twist.” “Cinderella” will be a retelling of the classic fairy tale from the Fairy Godmother’s perspective. An obsessive compulsive Fairy Godmother, known for cracking the toughest cases, is assigned to a hopeless girl named Cinderella. What seems like a perfect match at first sight, (because Cinderella is doomed to clean, cook and tidy, which happens to be the Fairy Godmother’s specialty), turns into a nightmare when all the Fairy Godmother’s efforts to help Cinderella fail. Cinderella is just very bad at her job. Needless to say, this drives the OCD Fairy Godmother absolutely crazy. Determined not to leave a case unresolved, the Fairy Godmother stumbles upon Cinderella’s true hidden talent, which can only be fulfilled by becoming a princess (and, you know the rest). Our story will explore how the Fairy Godmother overcomes her own condition and learns tolerance as she guides Cinderella to shine within her strength.
