My children and I were fortunate enough to participate in a round table discussion and viewing of The Ooogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure, a kids movie in theaters August 29th. The producer Kenn Viselman and writer Scott Stabile lead the discussion and gave us detailed insight into the inspiration behind this film. The motivation behind the film is to give children a positive movie going experience, where they are encouraged to physically and verbally interact with the movie.
The ﬁlm follows the Oogieloves - Goobie, Zoozie and Tooﬁe - as they set out to ﬁnd ﬁve magical golden balloons in time for their good friend Schluufyʼs surprise birthday party. With the help of their best friends, J. Edgar, Windy Window and Ruffy, and the support of many extraordinary new friends whom they meet along the way, the Oogieloves travel throughout all of beautiful LovelyLoveville on their search. They’ll need plenty of creative thinking, teamwork and enthusiasm to rescue these one-of-a-kind balloons in time for the big celebration. But when the Oogieloves work together with the audience, they can achieve anything!
We had an awesome experience at this movie and hope it is the first of many more of it's kind to come!
