HEY PROGRAM DIRECTOR!

Are you dying for fresh Christmas programming?

Doesn’t take long for people to start “complaining” about Christmas music, right? Give your staff a break and broadcast our program!

We’re giving out broadcast licenses for free this year (Merry Christmas!), so get in touch and we’ll give you access to all the files!

In the meantime, here are some more resources for you!

TECHNICAL DETAILS

The program consists of eight (8) episodes. Each episode is roughly 22 minutes in length and split into three (3) segments that are 5-8 minutes in length.
 
We recommend placing ads between segments so that each 22 minute episode fills a half hour slot. Formatted this way, our program fills four (4) full hours nicely. Episodes can be played consecutively or spread out over a few days.
 
Without ads, the program fills three (3) hours.
 
Free licenses allow unlimited broadcasts, but expire on Dec 31st, 2019.
 
CONTENT & RATING
 
If this were a movie, it would be rated PG, like any Pixar movie.
 
Our program contains comic mischief (car chases, slapstick comedy, sword fights) and very mild language (the words “stupid” and “idiot” are sometimes used. Oh, and “fart-brain.”) 
 
There are two potentially frightening scenes: When a lead character falls through ice and then another is later run through with a sword. But these characters are saved moments later.
 
A subplot deals with conflict between a young mother and her son over “dad leaving.” This is resolved in heartwarming fashion in the end.

WRITER/DIRECTOR STATEMENT

francy

FRANCOIS GOUDREAULT JR.
Writer, Music Producer & Sound Designer

Magi & The Quest for Christmas was created, written, directed and edited by Francois Goudreault Jr. – who also voices the character Chomper.

Francois (or Francy has friends & fans call him) cut his teeth in music, fronting the successful Canadian synth-rock band Hello Kelly since 2004.

Having contended with a speech disability and stutter since childhood, Francy embraces any opportunity to tell stories. He’s also a sucker for a great Christmas movie, plus tends to use his art to explore themes about life on the edge of faith. So a Christmas podcast about 3 mystics looking for Jesus in 2019 is a pretty good fit when you think about it.

He works as a mobile sound designer and music producer, calling home wherever his vehicle is parked that week. He’s joined in his adventures by his wife, partner-in-crime and co-writer Julia Appleton.

 

“Thank you for checking out the website for Magi & The Quest for Christmas! Here are some thoughts from me, the writer/director!

There’s so much I love about this story – but the main thing I love is how it invites us to look at the nativity story through new eyes! To see and hear about the wisemen looking for Baby Jesus in a shopping mall? That’s so fun! And I hope meaningful for some people too.

I found this story needed to be told with tongue firmly in cheek because the main metaphor is “Where’s Jesus? Why can’t we find him?” Let’s face it, some people are asking about that about churches today, ya know? This story is goofy and fun but it also creates a safe place to ask these questions about how to find Jesus in our culture and lives today.

I hope 3 things happen when people experience this story. One, I hope they have a blast! Two, I hope it becomes a Christmas staple for their family like other Christmas movies were for mine. And three, I hope they see the nativity story with new perspective and consider Jesus as the reason for the season in a new way. That’s what it’s all about!

Enjoy!”

-Francy Goudreault
