Pompo (voice of Brianna Gentilella in the English dub) is a pint size film producer, who grew up with her master filmmaker grandfather (John H. Mayer), and her magic ability is she can take any film script and make it better. Her production assistant is Gene (Christopher Trindade), a movie super fan who dreams of cinema all day long. When a great film opportunity comes along, Pompo trusts Gene to direct for the first time.
