Ladybuckit is the story of a brilliant, precocious Bukky, who on a journey of self-discovery, transforms into a bucket. She soon settles in with the Motley Mopsters and is swept up in a tide of friendship and excitement.
A fun story that everyone can enjoy, Ladybuckit is set in Oloibiri, a small town in Bayelsa, Nigeria where crude oil was first discovered in commercial quantities in the 1950s. Oloibiri is known merely in historic terms, but not much about its culture or its people is taught or learnt in schools.
The first cinema-released feature-length movie brings a seemingly obscure culture and history of Nigeria to life with the story of LBMM.
The movie has been in the works for two years and costs approximately one million dollars to produce. Boasting a cast and crew of 30, LBMM combines the skill and experience of veterans with the fresh talent of young minds. Voices in this feel-good work of art include Patrick Doyle, Bimbo Akintola, Kalu Ikeagwu, Kelechi Udegbe, Awazi Angbalaga, Jessica Edwards, David Edwards and several supporting cast.
Ladybuckit provides an opportunity for families to bond over a truly positive event, in the light of how chaotic 2020 has been. The animation is a gentle reminder to Nigerians to laugh, hope and dream again. With the second teaser released on Saturday, October 31, 2020, anticipation for LBMM is quite high.
Executive produced and produced by Blessing Amidu, who doubles as the Founder/CEO of Hot Ticket Productions, Ladybuckit will have families coming back to enjoy art and excellence in action.
Other talents involved in this groundbreaking project include award-winning filmmaker, Chris Ihidero, who serves as Consulting Producer on the project, and director, Bisi Adetayo, who was involved in the production of Game of Thrones.
The animated feature is the complete package. The movie will also be accompanied by a 14-track original album created by music producer and songwriter, Clement ‘DJ Klem’ Kponu and film composer, Ava Momoh.
Ladybuckit and the Motley Mopsters is set to be released in cinemas (Nigeria and internationally) on Friday, December 11, and we can’t wait to see it.
