Unboxing, a trend
Unboxing Movie, just what the film industry needs to change things. From feelings having feelings and toys being sentient, comes a new plot that will make everyone shake their heads once again. Alright, unboxing is pretty common. The internet, to this day, is plagued with various creators doing it. Not only as gifts from fans and sponsors but also delivered stuff. This trend dates back to 2006, first centered on clothes and technology. Now? Basically, people unbox anything they can unbox.
Unboxing, Exploratory Learning Process
In an article by MentalFloss in 2015, Pamela Rutledge, director of the Media Psychology Research Center provided words to explain unboxing.
“We have a negative understanding of vicarious in our society—that you’re not doing your own living,” [Unboxing] is a different thing. It’s more of an exploratory learning process.”
“For kids, handing them a toy ice cream parlor [for example]—it’s already done the work for you. There’s no imagination, no building, thinking, creativity, or problem solving. With these videos and other games, there’s learning: How are they putting it together? How are they using the Play-Doh? How are they making different creations?”
For this reason, unboxing videos should not really get that much hate online. However, as a plot for a movie, it’s quite questionable.
The film centers on a pre-teen girl, 11 years old of an unknown name at the moment. In summary, mischievous YouTube star opens her father’s box and unleashes Puck and his gang on a small town. It’s an overused plot, another Pandora’s box idea that will either make everyone like it due to its simplicity or something that will receive the ire of consumers who want something more.
Unboxing, the movie, is under indie studio Pocket.watch. Its writer is none other than Ice Age extraordinaire, Jim Hecht. Former Nickelodeon and HLN boss Albie Hecht will serve as a producer. In addition to that, Poket. watch CEO Chris M. Williams will take the role of executive producer for this project.
That’s all the deets we have for now. Stay tuned!
