This week’s guest is Christian Ijin Link, Unit Production Manager on The Magic Bracelet. I first talked to Christian at the 48 Hour Film Project, and you can hear him in the back end of the Kristin Nolan episode talking about the film he wrote, among all the other teams talking about their projects. After we had talked about the 48, Christian was extremely excited about The Magic Bracelet, a project he had worked on as part of the Make a Film Foundation. So we sat down in advance of its screening at the Breckenridge Film Festival and talked about how the film came to be made as well as a lot about the nuts and bolts of working in Hollywood. Join us this Wednesday, September 3, for an insightful chat about the inner workings of movie making.
About the film: “The Magic Bracelet” mysteriously links best friends Angela, Ashley and a cheese obsessed dog. When Ashley inherits a totem bracelet from a friend who died of Mitochondrial Disease – the same illness she herself battles – it leads the girls on a mystical journey of discovery in which a new level of friendship, family and healing is revealed. This project was created by Make A Film Foundation to fulfill the wish of 15 year old Rina Goldberg whose final words to her mom before she died of Mitochondrial disease were “Promise to take care of my film.”
