The Animated All Ball Band Tackles the Super Bowl with a New Mini-Movie Release

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With only a few days until Super Bowl XLVIII, the members of the All Ball Band are bringing their own game to the 48th annual championship.  In the premiere YouTube mini-movie release, "Pig is Chosen," the animated wonders play out a captivating tale designed to delight ball fans of all ages.  The twelve-minute film short, created by producer and CEO of JWE Enterprises, Jim White, brings the characters from the popular "All Ball Band" eBook alive and to the football field as they tackle another big ball adventure.

In "Pig is Chosen," we find All Ball Band member, Pig (as in "pigskin," of course!) as the rambunctious young football sent from the magical place known as All Ball World. Pig has been chosen by the Elder Balls to come to Earth and serve as the official football used in the kickoff at the Super Bowl. Pig's only nemesis is Victor Pinball, an evil wizard who lives inside a pinball machine. On Pig's journey to earth, a real "Ball of Confusion" ensues when Pig meets a youngster named Jimmy who helps foil Victor Pinball's relentless efforts to stop Pig from playing, and being played with, in the championship. 

The legendary R&B group, The Four Tops, provide the soundtrack for several of the song selections in "Pig is Chosen," and Michael "Boogaloo Shrimp" Chambers known for his role as "Turbo" in the 1984 cult classic film "Breakin'" and the 1984 hit sequel "Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo," is the voice behind the character of Jimmy.

"This video is only the beginning of the All Ball Band story," says White. "Every one of the characters who live in All Ball World are fully prepared to bring their comedic take to any subject, with an appeal to children and adults alike.  The Super Bowl celebration provides a wonderful occasion to continue to build and grow an audience for these delightful characters."

Combining two of the most potent influences on youth culture -- music and sports – All Ball World offers children a fresh perspective on critical issues in familiar language, giving them playful, relatable examples of how to navigate a world that changes every millisecond, to respectfully connect with friends and family, to love the process of learning and how to discover who they want to be as they grow into adulthood.

In the collective spirit of Charles Schulz's "Peanuts," Bill Cosby's "Fat Albert" and Jim Henson's "Sesame Street" and "The Muppets," the All Ball Band animated series creates characters with a conscience in a contemporary conversation. A series with equal parts education and entertainment, All Ball World is natural content for integrated media, extending its cross-platform reach via television, film, Internet, music production, book publishing, comics, mobile apps, computer and console video games, and live events.

The main characters in All Ball World are members of the All Ball Band, each represented as a ball from a major sport: "Babe" is the sax-wailing baseball, "Patches" the soccer ball is the lead singer, "Strike" is the bowling ball guitarist, "Pig" is the football drummer, "Dr. Tee" is the golf ball on keyboards, the trumpet-playing basketball is "Slam," and "Love" (the sole female in the band) is a bass-playing tennis ball. Each character is endowed with their own unique personality, fueled by their diverse tastes in music -- from pop to jazz, from rap to rock -- interacting in situations that are relatable and accessible to viewers of all ages, and delightfully driving each storyline to its goal.

For the past two decades, JWE Enterprises' founder Jim White has defined the designation of successful entrepreneur in every aspect of entertainment: television, film, music, live production, book publishing and talent management. It's no wonder the cream of Beverly Hills business have consulted with him over the years to help them connect to new audiences and expand their brands; he brings a substantive savvy to any project, and unequivocal integrity to every relationship. His innate ability to envision the potential and the power in a raw concept has produced satisfying results for all who avail themselves of his remarkable vision and his commitment to excellence.

White continues to bring his considerable knowledge, experience and expertise in traditional entertainment to the next level.  His exceptional creative team at JWE are producing integrated content that seamlessly engages all markets in every available media format, connecting the extraordinary promise of new technology with the time-honored value of quality storytelling.
