Fredrikstad, Norway – September 26, 2016 – Earthtree Media is pleased to announce that it has signed a deal with Latvian Television regarding Earthtree’s successful TV series Box Yourself (30×11’).
Box Yourself contains a great mixture of education and entertainment elements. It shows how to recycle, upcycle and make great things from ordinary everyday cardboard. It encourages kids to be creative, artistic, imaginative and – most of all – to have fun! From their basement studio, the show’s host Øistein Kristiansen and his cardboard sidekick “Box” demonstrate how to make 30 different objects – animals, people, vehicles, puppets and more. Each episode guides the viewers through the process of creation: Draw, Build, Paint!
Latvian Television’s Film Acquisitions Manager Zane Valeniece says: ‘The show is great! “Box Yourself” is a really good product for kids to show how to encourage, develop and use your creativity. And this is also a good way to have a good time with family, friends or just by yourself creating things. Every episode is like a new challenge!
Earthtree Media’s CEO Stein Georg Lillemoen says: ‘The Earthtree team is so thankful to be able to reach a new audience through our new partner Latvian Television. We hope our show will inspire a new generation of Latvian kids and their families to be even more creative and innovative, inspired by Box Yourself!’
Box Yourself will be on Latvian Television on Sunday mornings, starting October 9. ‘Lets start Sunday morning with creating great things in an imaginative and fun way! This format for kids will be something new for our channel. I’m really looking forward that our target audience will be inspired!’ – Zane Valeniece.
