Wilf Goes Wild
An Interactive, Online Children's Musical
by Sarah Middleton & Josh Sneesby | Directed by Matt Powell
WILF GOES WILD is a short-form, educational musical following the adventures of self proclaimed explorer Wilf & his sister Willow. Through imagined expeditions, they learn about different parts of our world meeting a colourful cast of characters along the way. Wilf Goes Wild is unapologetically musical. The colourful and musical world of Wilf’s adventures aims to be entertaining, educational and epic.
Wilf’s adventure began during on hope: a digital song cycle. Josh and Sarah presented a five minute song introducing us to the young wannabe explorer, who’s imagination takes him to on epic adventures. Following a popular response, Matt approached Josh and Sarah about developing the character further, seeing potential in the catchy sound & exciting visual style of the short song.
The pilot episode, The Mystery of the Missing Marvin, received Arts Council Project Grant Funding in November 2019. The Pilot starred Nathan Rigg, Shannon Rewcroft and Andrew Langtree. The show is currently under further development.
