“Olivia Rox: The Movie” and other wholesome entertainment for kids and teens

(1) This movie is meant for kids from 5 to 12 years old and is available as a 9-part series on YouTube. It was shot in HD and has the feel and look of a Disney movie.

Olivia Rox, as some of you might know, reached the Top 10 of American Idol Season 15. Her performances are audition (“When I was your man” by Bruno Mars); Showcase round (“Love Somebody” by Maroon 5); Top 24 (“Confident” by Demi Lovato); duet with David Cook (“Light on”); Top 10 (“Unconditional” by Katy Perry); and Final Performance (“Trouble” by Pink).

Olivia Rox’s parents are Warren and Tamara Hill. Warren is the best jazz saxophonist in the world today, while Tamara is a writer/director. In 2009, when Olivia Rox was 10 years old, her parents didn’t want her watching some shows on television. And so, her mother wrote and directed a 90-minute movie titled “Olivia Rox: The Movie”. Olivia Rox played the part of “Olivia Roxamillion,” a kid’s version of Nancy Drew who tries to solve the mystery of the missing puppies. Her father played the part of a scientist/inventor.

(By the way, Olivia Rox’s real first name is only “Olivia,” but because of the movie, people started calling her “Olivia Rox.”)

For more information about the movie, please read ‘Olivia Rox!’ is creative Boulder family’s attempt to fill kids’ entertainment gap.
