Innovation Voucher & Access Voucher

Supported by European Structural Investment Funding (ESIF)

Project: LoveLove Films is an award-winning independent animation and video production company based in Bournemouth. LoveLove successfully applied for an Innovation Voucher to support the development of the pilot for their first in-house animation, Bottle Island.

Bottle Island is 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.

To promote World Environment Day on June 5th, LoveLove Films collaborated with the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) using characters from Bottle Island to promote the day to pre-school audiences across the world.

On December 6th LoveLove also participated in a Meet the Maker Letterpress workshop, where the team got to explore and try their hand at mixing traditional and modern printing techniques for visual communications. Find out more about their experiences in their own words.
