Project Wild Thing - now only a keyboard away!

Thursday, 5 June 2014

A quick heads up! Project Wild Thing is a brilliant, funny and truly inspirational film created by British filmmaker David Bond - and as of today it's available for viewing worldwide via this link

So what's the deal?
Project Wild Thing is a film led movement to get more kids (and their folks!) outside and reconnecting with nature. The film is an ambitious, feature-length documentary that takes a funny and revealing look at a complex issue, the increasingly disparate connection between children and nature.

Ok, it's sounding good so far, tell me more...
Sure thing. Things have really changed since filmmaker David Bond was a kid. His children are hooked on screens and don't want to go outdoors. They want iPads, TV and plastic toys. The marketing departments of Apple, Disney and Mattel control his children better than he can. Determined to get them up and out, David appoints himself as the Marketing Director for Nature. With the help of branding and outdoor experts, he develops and launches a nationwide marketing campaign to get British children outside. But the competition is not going to lie down and let some upstart with a free product steal their market. PROJECT WILD THING is the hilarious, real-life story of one man's determination to get children out and into the ultimate, free wonder-product: Nature.

Is the film really that good?
Oh yes sirree. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the sold-out Adelaide screening back in February and I can't implore you enough to watch it, it's a total game changer. But don't just take my word for it -  the film has received rave reviews worldwide and just took out the Inspiring Lives Award at the 2014 San Francisco Green Film Festival!

For more info head over to Project Wild Thing where you can learn about the grassroots movement that helped bring one man's vision to fruition, opportunities to get some more wildtime into busy modern life, and how you can even organise a community screening.
