Ocean Rescue Battalion

As a multiplatform comedy animation brand, 'Ocean Rescue Battalion, has been devised from the ground up to work interconnectedly on multiple platforms. Each individual platform will offer its audience a full experience in isolation, but when the consumer accesses the brands content on multiple platforms, they will be rewarded with additional 'hidden codes and content' that will further enhance their engagement and entertainment. The ethos of the brand is to reach a broad and diverse community and allay climate fear in its younger audience. ORB will utilise different combinations of its varied cast to best serve the demographic of the platform on which it is hosted. 'ORB' offers an exciting and fresh approach to brand management. Passive TV series and Feature films will offer embedded XR codes, to engage the more technically savyy audiences whilst granting the younger audience (9+) fact loaded and curated educational resources about our Ocean and its delicate marine ecosystem. Whilst the XR comic novels and cutting edge 3D NFT series will be released on the Cardano blockchain and appeal to an older audience. These 'Agent characters / tokens' will populate and interact with the main TV/Film cast as background and NCP characters. There is also an exciting and 'collaborative' Game of Survival planned in which the aim of the MMORPG offering is to encourage players to 'work together' to benefit, maintain and protect the Ocean and all those who rely on her.
