Anya’s 7th: A Magical Disneyland Parade



One can say that it’s the music, the transitioning, and the emotions that it invokes.

Truth be told, my guess is as good as anyone else’s. (I’m a stylist, not a videographer, after all, so what would I know about the video business!)

But I do know someone who has the answer:

{SDE} – Anya turns 7 : Flights of Fantasy from Lemon Three Films on Vimeo.

If Lemon Three Films has been my go-to videographer for the past 4 years, it’s with good reason. Simply put, I believe that they come up with the best artistic video material for children’s parties, day in, day out.

Now if you’re a mom researching for your kid’s upcoming party, here’s what you wouldn’t know by just googling Lemon Three:

  1. Lemon Three Films prizes, above all, story. Stories have always been the core of how humans communicate (for practical reasons, stories are easier to remember and pass on than just facts), that magical ingredient that makes videos come alive.
  2. Possibly more than story, Lemon Three Films value heart. Rak, the driving force behind Lemon Three, has been known to dismantle whole edited videos simply because it has story but no heart. Redoing a whole video is better than coming up with sub-par work.

Which makes Anya’s video above even more impressive, because it’s actually an SDE (same-day-edit).

So let’s all join me in saying, hip-hip…HOORAY! For Rak and the Lemon Three Films team! For he’s a jolly good fellow…


2 and a half years after Party Magic conceptualized the Flights of Fantasy Parade themed party, I’m crying like a proud mother.

This is because last weekend, we pulled off Anya’s Disneyland Birthday Party, complete with an upgraded version of the Flights of Fantasy parade (see video above)!

Here’s a quick highlight reel of our decor / parade:

And the icing on the cake? The Party Magic team and I pulled this off in good company, with Den of Delightful Little Darlings and Rak of Lemon Three Films!

Den was, as usual, impeccable in capturing the magical moments.

This is why I’ve always been a fan of Den’s work. You can practically taste the feeling of happiness of the family!

The happiest 7th birthday to our dear Anya!
