World Premiere of Kids show Directed by 2 Time Grammy nominee Leonard Eckhaus at 15th New Media Film Festival

Los Angeles, CA, United States, 30th Apr 2024 - In the world of children's entertainment, a heartwarming tale can often be the bridge between simple amusement and profound life lessons. "If I Were a Pony," a story that originated from the creative mind of Leonard Eckhaus, is one such narrative that has transcended its pages to captivate hearts across generations.

The story unfolds through the eyes of a pony, offering readers and viewers a unique perspective on companionship and the passage of time. The adventures shared between the boy and his pony are not just escapades across streams or rides with friends; they are the building blocks of an unbreakable bond that withstands the test of time and the inevitability of change.

This dedication blossomed into a song, and eventually, an animated music video that featured vocals by Hannah herself, now 9 years old.
