We are the Magdalena's
That's Dominic & Marina Magdalena. The people behind Imaginarium! Having worked together previously for over 8 years, Imaginarium Seed was the quiet dream we never knew we had. From global missions, sailing across the world, traveling theatre and establishing businesses in Ibiza, Imaginarium Seed quickly became one of our favourite adventures. Now with 2 bold and creative kids in tow, as a family we love nothing more than imagining alongside others to bring the world the best in Faith and Family Entertainment.
The key principals behind our vision our...
Because that's what TV is all about
We want you to watch it. Not just because the TV is on but because you make a date with us. Our shows should be so good, you can’t wait for the next episode. How do we achieve this? It’s a relentless search for the best content, the most creative presentation, the most accessible information. Our job is to entertain you, so you will allow us into your front room, onto your sofa.
because there’s so much to learn about this wonderful life
We’re on a mission to access the knowledge and expertise of thought-filled, enquiring-minded individuals to educate and inform your life. It could be theology, psychotherapy, child development - we get to share their wisdom so you can see things differently and find the best path for your life and your family. Whatever the age of our viewers, from the youngest pupil to the most mature student, we seek to build positive, passionate, Jesus-centred lives by inviting the very best teaching into your world.
because there is always more to explore and achieve
Sometimes all it takes is a nudge. If we can inspire you, it can change your day, encourage your family, perhaps even renew your life. We want to take you out of the mundane to reach for more, to accept the challenge and to grow into all God has planned for you. We hope to inspire a passion to live like Jesus, to love like Jesus and to bring this transforming power into the lives of others.
Our primary aim is....
to create great entertainment that is life-giving, speaks to the soul and raises the creative bar. Throughout our endeavours we are committed to forging a path in faith and family entertainment that leaves room for others to join in. We know that the kind of wisdom, creativity and innovation this world needs, lies within the body of believers - and we are committed to giving those people a hand on to the platform.
The Imaginarium Story:
So how have we come to the point where we’re making TV shows? Well, we’ve been entertaining, educating and inspiring for a few years now. By spending time immersed with our audience, our vision could take shape. Our Seed was planted on the road, in 2011...
We get busy entertaining through Story Theatre, touring countless festivals, destinations and audiences with an imaginative and fast paced piece of original theatre. A great interaction and response from our audience leads us to inspire children to explore their own creativity with a weekly stage school.
Our work in communities develops and we make our first piece of media whilst gathering a fractured community together around the common goal of film making. Our theatre is still touring and our kids are still stage schooling.
Our style of theatre takes off and we begin to develop alongside other producers in the film and media industry. Imaginarium starts cooking up an idea for developing our first TV show (which is still currently in development!).
Our work in film and communities draws attention in the Social Care world and we are asked by the department of health to produce 4 short films around the life Stories of people who live with mental health challenges. Meanwhile, we are still touring, still teaching.
More social care projects around mental health, more teaching, more touring, and a developing relationship with UCB media.
Our stage school takes a step back as does Story Theatre as we gather our thoughts. Over the last 5 years we have immersed ourselves in making educational entertainment, moved into media and explored the world of social care and mental health. It looked chaotic, unruly, some may say a little manic! But somewhere, hidden in the whirlwind, the little seed was beginning to sprout.
From this strong foundation, the first Imaginarium TV show was created. The Mum Show broadcast on 12 channels worldwide, including Inspiration.TV, TBN.UK and God.TV. The passion that was with us from the very beginning, to entertain, educate and inspire, was now realised. Three women in an everyday setting, sharing wisdom, laughter and specialist skills around raising children in a loving, Jesus-centered home. It turns out The Mum Show was just what lots of people around the world were waiting for. This successful format is just a glimpse of the Imaginarium vision as a living and life-giving creation, bringing joy, hope and vitality into your home.
Now established as a full time Television production company, we still centre around three primary goals: to entertain, to educate and to inspire.
