Clone of So You wanna be...

Benoit Van Wambeke


a childrens documentary series by Benoit Van Wambeke, in co-production with KETNET,in collaboration with Agentschap Ondernemen

Which kid does not dream about a future full of adventures, discoveries and emotions: "when i'm grown up, I'll be cowboy, firefighter, pilot, lumberjack..."
Social environment and education are maybe powerfull elements to give children an idea on what their future will be and what kind of opportunities they will find. But they are not the only ones: desire and pleasure could also help to make a decision!

"So, you wanna be..." helps kids to discover men and women busy with exciting jobs: their own. Passion and emotion are the main motivations that help them to found their job, their life.

"So, you wanna be..." are stories about "heroes". Each episode will put forward a job with a hero, man or woman, on live action.

"So, you wanna be..." is guided by "Piper" - a virtual animated figure - who helps the audience to understand each episode with humour and passion.

"So, you wanna be..." takes place in outstanding locations, opens your mind, wants you to discover, travel and learn.
