LoveLove Films are currently in development with Bottle Island, a fun and fast-paced 2D / 3D mixed-media edutainment preschool adventure series that encourages young children to care for their planet by reinforcing themes such as conservation, preservation and the issues surrounding plastic pollution.
The series follows a group of quirky friends as they work together to try and save the island from the rubbish that washes up on the shore. Through their eco-adventures, the characters discover the wonders and perils of the world around them.
Pilot- Crab City:
Socket and Nurdle come across ‘Crab City’, where all the hermit crabs on Bottle Island live. The crabs are using plastic items as shells because that’s all they can find. Shocked by the crabs’ living conditions, they set out to help. They ask Prof Z to make a machine that will help the crabs’ situation, but it keeps malfunctioning.
Green message: The reality of what plastic pollution does to wildlife.
Full Series Synopsis:
Bottle Island is a tropical paradise. Well, it’s sort of a tropical paradise. It isn’t Bora Bora, or Bali. It’s certainly not Hawaii. The name Bottle Island doesn’t come from the Greek God of recycling, Bottlaestusternotseislandon! No! Bottlaestusternotseislandon doesn’t even exist!
Bottle Island is, in fact, a remote tropical island that has itself been morphed from all the rubbish from all over the world, hence: What a load of rubbish!
Bottle Island is a look at the lives of a group of quirky friends as they work together to try and save the island from the rubbish that washes up on the shore by positively managing and recycling the waste, protecting the island from being overwhelmed by rubbish and taking care of their environment. Through their eco-adventures, the characters learn the value of friendship and discover the wonders and perils of the world around them.
Each episode of the series follows a day in the life of Bottle Island’s most inquisitive inhabitants Socket and Nurdle. Socket is a robot made up of dozens of different junk items whilst Nurdle is one of the natural land animals on Bottle Island. Each day, the pair are shocked by a new revelation caused by the environmental issues prevalent on Bottle Island. They both set out to try and fix these issues one episode at a time, always needing help from their close group of friends.
Being their inquisitive selves, Socket and Nurdle are always asking ‘Why?’ and ‘How?’ For instance; “Why is the world this way?” and “How do fix it?”
There has been a great deal of press and publicity surrounding plastic pollution recently and Bottle Island aims to ride this (admittedly heavily polluted) wave by subtly teaching young children to care for their planet whilst reinforcing themes such as conservation, ecology, recycling and preservation. Bottle Island promotes important environmental issues that need to be communicated to the new generation from an early age so that their thinking, choices and behavior ultimately changes our planet for the good.
As well as being entertaining, the best preschool shows aim to educate children from a very early age whilst inspiring creativity and stimulating imagination. Bottle Island adheres to these high standards by inviting viewers to join the eco-adventures of Socket and his friends. Bottle Island aims to:
• Heighten environmental imagination and enthusiasm, whilst helping to nurture wonder, curiosity and appreciation for nature and the environment.
• Promote a sense of place and connection through community involvement. When children decide to learn more or take action to improve their environment, they address environmental issues impacting on their community and neighbourhood.
• Enhance critical and creative thinking skills, encourage children to find out more about the environment, investigate how and why things happen, and make their own decisions about complex environmental issues.
• Help children take responsible actions to better the environment by building knowledge.
The idea that ‘one person’s junk is another person’s treasure’ is also a fantastic message for children. It inspires creativity, stimulates imagination, influences everyday actions and promotes recycling and responsibility for the world around us.
But don’t worry! We don’t want to overwhelm children with too much information about the environment. The environmental themes are built into the series in a way that will not get in the way of their fun and entertainment.
I know the characters can’t wait to meet you! We hope you enjoy Bottle Island
