Simon Crawford-Collins, Executive producer, Slim Film + Television, says ‘SMMs come highly recommended and they have the right touch to appeal to an online teenage audience.’
Jo Booth of SMMS adds, ‘It’s a really exciting project for us. I must admit I was that horse mad girl once upon a time, so I know the territory well! We’ll be working closely with Mystic’s publicists Milk Publicity, to give the show comprehensive coverage.’
Mystic is based on the best-selling author Stacy Gregg’s series The Pony Club Secrets. Mystic is set in the fictional peninsula of Kauri Point, New Zealand, where new girl Issie Brown (Macey Chipping), having recently moved to the quiet, backwater town from London with her mother Amanda (Laura Patch) is struggling to fit in.
Desperately missing her pals back home, a chance encounter with a beautiful wild pony Blaze, and an enigmatic stallion, Mystic, awakens an unexpected and surprising interest in horses, and introduces Issie to a group of horse-mad teenagers. When an industrial development threatens to destroy their community, their way of life and the landscape they love, the teenagers must find a way to save Kauri Point from environmental disaster.
