BEN: 30’s + Afro-Caribbean heritage
Ben is a single father, who is trying to educate his son on the importance of eating right. The kitchen is stocked with fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices.
Everything Ben does is with passion. The kitchen is his favourite room in the house, it’s where he and his son, Tobias bond.
When Ben isn’t trying to impart one of his mother’s signature dishes, he’s singing and dancing…which is the perfect opportunity for young Tobias to sneak the family German shepherd dog, some non-organic broccoli!
The punchline comes, when Ben sets Tobias the task of pulling “branches off the tree” (broccoli florets), Ben’s back is turned for a second, when the familiar chomping sounds of the family German shepherd refocuses his attentions, and he notices his son tossing the broccoli to the dog and asks him what he’s doing. Tobias simply responds,
“It’s not organic, dad”!
The film intends to centre around family, and the importance of giving your children the best start in life with organic food.
This light-hearted, thirty second campaign film, will be submitted to “the soil association” for a chance to be showcased on their website.
