World Premiere Volunteer Screening of “Lucy”
September 7, 2023
3:00 pm - 3:45 pm
You are cordially invited to a world premiere volunteer screening of Southeastern Guide Dogs’ newest animated film, Lucy, to be held at the Southeastern Guide Dogs Dining Hall, on Thursday, September 7th, at 3:00 p.m.
Following up on the extraordinary success of our previous animated films like Pip and Believe in Hope, we are thrilled to present Lucy, a heartwarming tale that will surely touch the hearts of dog lovers everywhere. Lucy tells the twin stories of two unforgettable new characters, Lucy and Chloe, using all the remarkable tools and techniques of digital animation.
“Once upon a time, maybe even today, a small pup named Lucy dreams of becoming a guide dog. Not far away, a winsome little girl struggles to cope with painful memories of her military dad, killed in combat.
“Lucy needs a purpose. A passion. Her person.
“Chloe needs a best friend, a pal, a soulmate. Someone to mend her broken heart.
“Watch the magic unfold as two kindred souls come together, forging an unbreakable bond. Lucy, coming to screens on September 7th, will remind you that like sunshine after rain, hope always blooms between two best friends.”
Though the animated short itself is around five minutes long, this exclusive premiere will include much more. Stacy Howe, our Vice President of Marketing, will lead a behind-the-scenes look into the process and vision of this film. Stacy plans to provide some background information on animated shorts as part of marketing efforts, and then she will share both Lucy and hopefully a sneak peek of our next work-in-progress, Lucy, Christmas Edition. This second animated short rejoins our characters during their very first Christmas together, and it will be released as a 60-second public service announcement later this fall.
Please RSVP by September 3rd to attend this world-premiere volunteer screening. (Please note that the dress is casual. Due to space constraints, volunteers are unable to bring guests at this time. Should the RSVP numbers allow for additional space, we will notify you of the possibility to bring a guest.)
Your commitment and efforts have helped shape the community we cherish, and this is our way of celebrating you and the impact you have made.
We can’t wait to share this magical experience with you.
