Media Advisory

NEW YORK/EWORLDWIRE/Aug. 1, 2014 --- Driven by fast moving demographic shifts in population that are changing the definition of race, MIXIS(TM) brand parent company YNU Group has unveiled fresh brand positioning and a major global marketing and crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.

The goal: To raise $56,000 for an animated series pilot and website, MIXIS: ANIMATED (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/mixis-campaign).

According to Debbie Goodland, company founder, "Brought together in a variety of ways including through immigration and intermarriage, minorities, multiracial and multiethnic people of all kinds who share two or more distinct racial backgrounds are often grouped together under the label of 'mixed race,' reflecting a lack of knowledge or understanding of the values, customs and traditions of specific races and cultures. MIXIS challenges traditional notions of race."

Goodland affirms the company's world-class reputation as a trustworthy, authoritative provider of high quality products and content relating to the multi-racial and multi-cultural experience is the ideal conduit to create, "MIXIS: ANIMATED." The series is designed to embody "authentic on-the-ground, real slice-of-life perspectives of a diverse group of MIXIS, including their families, friends and associates throughout the world."

In a fun and adventure-filled manner, unique, savvy and culturally relevant characters are "paired with dynamic and passionate storytelling. MIXIS characters will do more than tell a story: They will describe how it feels to experience situations influenced by racial factors first-hand."

"Each carefully crafted persona reflects individual experiences. Creatively targeted to an age 6 and over audience, the MIXIS: ANIMATED production is designed to foster self-esteem, to encourage creativity in all forms, and to promote an amalgamated multi-ethnic society based on social acceptance, inclusion, and respect of human diversity," stated Goodland.

Based on the concept, "Celebrate Yourself and Others Will Follow," MIXIS: ANIMATED is optimistic and celebratory, promoting respect and responsible values - the core of an increasingly diverse society.

"Regardless of background, teaching children to celebrate their individuality and uniqueness, and to respect and embrace all others who are different, and to show responsibility for actions and attitudes within their social groups - these elements form the foundation of life-long positive attitudes and values," added Goodland.
