LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - An alarming rise of elephant slayings
along with an unprecedented outbreak of wildfires prompted gifted film
director Eric Schwab,(second unit director of Mission Impossible) to
write and direct his new dove seal film, My Lucky Elephant, which
showcases the importance of maintaining wildlife and living
harmoniously with it.
"I was looking to make a real world adventure that showed the beauty,
the power and uniqueness of life in harmony with nature that will amaze
and have people appreciate all of nature."
These epic concerns compelled him to shoot the film in the forests of
Thailand where he witnessed beautiful wildlife and a culture of people
who gracefully interacted with the creatures within their habitat.
During casting, Schwab saw that no bond was more graceful than the one
between the two main characters in his film, a young boy and his best
friend elephant named Lucky.
"It was breathtaking to see the interactions between the two. I knew
that there was a special line of communication between the two that no
one else could duplicate," he said.
The bond was a surprise to Schwab, who opted to limit the volume of
dialogue in the film to capture the nature at work between his two main
In the movie, a seasonal drought causes Lucky and his boy companion to
pursue the city for greener pastures. Once they arrive, the two quickly
find out work in the city can be lucrative but dangerous. A couple of
close encounters with police and ivory dealers lead them to a new home
outside the city, where Lucky discovers he has a creative talent--.and
becomes a master painter.
Despite a good living and a popular job both fought to maintain, the
young boy faces the dilemma of keeping his loyal elephant around for
his own personal needs, or to selflessly release it to start a family
with his female companion.
A film set for kids of all ages, My Lucky Elephant is a film predicated
on good values and an appreciation for Mother Nature. For more
information on the movie, which will be available on DVD and VOD on Feb
26th, go to MyLuckyElephantMovie.com.
