‘David Bond is a father. Things have really changed since he 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 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.’ – Synopsis taken from DVD back cover

Content wise Project Wild Thing effortlessly gets its message across. Narrative wise the documentary follows David Bond as he goes through a series of steps to get children back to nature and away from the technology that dominates their lives. The most startling fact that is revealed is that this generation of child will be the first in the history of the world who will have a shorter life span then their parents. From a pacing stand point things always move along briskly from one moment to the next. And without a doubt Project Wild Thing’s greatest gift is the way it reminds us of how to reconnect with the inner child that had long ago been obscured by adulthood.
