in Every Frame
is an imaginary bowling center where everyone, young
and old look to bowling for happiness, livelihood,
identity and love of the sport. It is a place where
fun, adventure and play help develop lifetime
Bowlopolis captures youth
imagination through an innovative, educational and
humorous series of 3-D animated DVDs where children
are presented with the many activities found in a
bowling center. The initial 8 episodes feature a
typical young boy (Layne), at home enthralled in his
video game environment, forced out of his limited
world on a mission to save his father (and manager
of Bowlopolis). To accomplish his goal, he must
visit Bowlopolis and confront the evil (and awkward)
Kingpin. While there, Layne witnesses his friends
enjoying the numerous venues available in this
ultra-modern facility. Importantly, his best friend,
Carrie, is there at Bowlopolis celebrating her
birthday. However, Layne is on a mission. He must
defeat the Kingpin at a game of bowling to release
his father and gain control of the earth -and earn a
sizable trophy. Only one problem ..... Layne does
not know how to bowl!
The series covers Layne's
experiences as he learns the finer points of the
sport; from bowling ball selection, bowling
techniques and competitiveness on his quest to "save
his father." His faithful pooch, Reset, accompanies
him throughout his Bowlopolis adventures. Reset
brings a high level of intelligence to the story and
a major secret. The capable canine can actually
talk, but only to Layne.
Layne Kegler -He is an all too
typical 10-year-old boy who would rather spend time
playing the latest, greatest video game rather than
getting some exercise. There's not a lot of quality
"family time" in Layne's life. It's not that Layne
doesn't love his family; it's just that he has to
save the Earth from mutant android pastry chefs with
Carrie Woods -Layne's good friend
is having her 10th birthday party today at
Bowlopolis. She is beyond excited and talks to Layne
so fast it is almost unintelligible -thanks in large
part to her party's steady diet of "cake and soda
and candy and cake."
Reset -The Kegler's family dog
has a secret and only Layne knows it. He can talk!
Around everyone else he sounds like a somewhat
normal run-of-the-mill canine, but with Layne he not
only speaks fluently, he is highly intelligent. The
problem -he is a bit of a know-it-all with a
plethora of information. Unfortunately, most of it
is completely useless factoids.
Mr. Kegler-the Manager at
Bowlopolis AND Layne's Dad. An all around good guy
who only wants what is best for his son.
Unfortunately, Layne sees him as somewhat, oh how do
you say this while being politically correct... 'UNCOOL!"
Kingpin -A gigantic evil
bowling pin from Bowlopolis bent on taking over the
Earth! What else is there to say!
The Pinions -The Kingpin's
mini-henchmen that are more annoying than
diabolical. Think of them as the Keystone cops, in
bowling pin form. In attempting to carry out the
Kingpin's twisted schemes, they usually end up
bungling things and fighting amongst themselves.
