Experiencing Interruptions?

Go! V-team!

If vegetables had new identities, what would you name them? What kind of the role would they play? What else Children can obtain from those vegetables except for its taste and the so-called nutrition? We visited some preschools to share the imagination from the 115 kids and try to know how they feel about vegetables. And Planet Meat has been invented. All they have is meat, no vegetables. Our host, Meaty, is flying to Earth to seek help from kids to collect ingredients and make some food with them to save eight little creatures.
Based on the idea to experience it so we make them members of V-team to explore in the fields. They learn how to identify and pick up fresh vegetables in season. They collect the assigned ingredients by they own hands to make delicious meal personally. The idea of “From harvest to mouth” helps establish their relationship with vegetables.

However, he has got more surprises and fun because his subjects were often unpredictable or uncontrollable.

Director Statement

It is an interesting and meaningful show. Despite of the challenges from the weather and production, we’ve done our best to make everything happen during the pre-production and get ready for all the possible situations. The biggest challenge in making a children’s show is that something unpredictable always happens, which gave us both pain and joy. We had to capture the real reaction of the kids to a strange environment and the vegetables, and maintain the quality of our images. At the same time, we had to go with the growing and harvest time of those vegetables, and filmed under the searing midsummer sun. The process was full of difficulties, but it was a fun and precious experience for us.
