Project Wild Thing

.
David Bond / 2013

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.
David’s humorous journey unearths some painful truths about modern family life.

Press

  • "Project Wild Thing is appealing as all viewers can connect with the message that it carries, despite the main target audience being parents and children. With the ease of social networking and the rapid expansion of the internet, many people are guilty of being technology dependent. One of the most effective moments in the film is a question it raised during a survey: ‘Recall the days when you were the happiest’. The results were astonishingly similar, most responses involved being outside exploring and spending the day with family. Equally, it is enlightening, informative and engaging. It has purpose and something important to say. It is convincing, encouraging and motivating without ever feeling like a repetitive lecture."
    Sheffield Doc/Fest Twenty: Project Wild Thing Review
    Sarah Holland, Front Row Reviews, June 17, 2013
  • "This film will change your life."
    The Guardian
    Patrick Barkham
  • "Anyone who sees this film will be in the great outdoors with their nippers the very first chance they get."
    The Outdoor Times
    Tony O'Donnell
  • "Project Wild Thing is engaging, moving, thoughtful, and refreshingly irreverent."
    Rethinking Childhood
    Tim Gill
  • "Uniquely uplifting and warming. It’s difficult to not fall in love with Project Wild Thing..."
    Front Row Reviews
    Sarah Holland
  • "Heartwarming, genuinely funny, and was hugely well-received by the audience."
    Filmoria
    Philip Bayles
  • "In a lighthearted story it keeps us engaged and open to the benefits and hurdles in our path to a reconnected natural presence in our lives."
    The Smart Happy Project
    Lisa Lilly White
  • "With Project Wild Thing, both as a mission and as a movie, David Bond does a tremendous lot with blessed little. That we get to know him amid it all is not at all a bad thing. Project Wild Thing is definitely a movie worth getting out for."
    Twitch Film
    Jim Tudor
  • "As Bond realises, future generations will experience the beauty of nature in increasingly different ways, and perhaps the answer is not to fret about the change but simply get out there and enjoy it."
    Shelf Heroes
  • "It does well to present the arguments from all the possible sides in the hopes that everyone can get on the same page of this sad and important issue."
    The Movie Waffler
  • "...the film really is a triumph... Go and see it. It’s funny; it has heart, it’s warm and it’s engaging."
    Nature's Footnote
    Jules Howard
  • "Persuasive and informative, Project Wild Thing is an engaging documentary that will instantly make you want to jump onboard with David Bond’s inspiring campaign. Recommended."

  • Project Wild Thing: a film-maker's campaign to reconnect kids with nature
    "Film-maker David Bond believes we have a problem. We are raising a generation of children who don't play outside any more. Time spent playing outdoors is down 50% in just one generation.
    Inactivity and obesity mean children born today have a lower life expectancy than their parents, for the first time ever. Meanwhile, evidence overwhelmingly suggests that natural environments have restorative physical and mental health effects, as well as specifically promoting child development. So children not playing outside, and not engaging with nature, is a big deal.
    But David Bond has a solution. And it began with a film."
    Tim Smedley, The Guardian, 12th July 2013

This is a beautiful film - I used it with my Grade 7 class, and they loved it. Inspired us all to appreciate the outside world!
