Supported by the BFI, The National Trust, The RSPB and Channel 4, we are releasing Project Wild Thing in around 60+ cinemas nationwide from the 25th October

Filmmaker David Bond is concerned. His kids' waking hours are dominated by a cacophony of marketing, and a screen dependence threatening to turn them into glassy-eyed zombies. Like city kids everywhere, they spend way too much time indoors - not like it was back in his day. He decides it's time to get back to nature - literally. In an attempt to compete with the brands, which take up a third of his daughter's life, Bond appoints himself Marketing Director for Nature. Like any self-respecting salesman, he sets about developing a campaign and a logo. With the help of a number of bemused professionals, he is soon selling Nature to British families. His humorous journey unearths some painful truths about modern family life. His product is free, plentiful and has proven benefits - but is Nature past its sell-by date? Film contributors include: naturalist CHRIS PACKHAM, Professor AGNES NAIRN, writer and environmentalist GEORGE MONBIOT, scientist JAAK PANKSEPP, writer JAY GRIFFITHS, Professor MICHAEL DEPLEDGE, advertising guru MICHAEL WOLFF, and brain scientist Prof. Baroness SUSAN GREENFIELD.
