My Little Obsession Movie
A Journey Into the World of My Little Pony Collectors
My Little Obsession began as the senior thesis of a Maryland film student at Stevenson University in the fall of 2010. Though the project was only required to be 10 minutes long, aspiring filmmaker Jewel quickly grasped the potential of the many interviews and hours of footage she had already accumulated, and despite the enormous challenges of chronic illness and disability, sought to find out just how big her project could grow.
The opportunity called for a documentary on a subject never before produced in a video media, and it was too interesting and exciting an opportunity to let pass by.
Between spring of 2010 and summer of 2011, Jewel and her small handful of crew-mates traveled the east coast of the USA, meeting dozens of other collectors and recording interviews. Their travels took them to local and national meets and conventions, and even to the home studio of the single most important person in the history of My Little Pony™.
