Cooper Winkman in: The Flesh and The Blood

The story is set in year 2468 in a desolate Southern California town where industrial pollution, unmanaged radioactive waste and pesticides have reduced nature to small patches of toxic land. The organisms that reside in these toxic patches survived years of manipulation of their natural environment by rapidly evolving into toxic beings themselves. It’s up to Cooper Winkman, the protagonist of the story, to maintain the quarantine on Terminal Island (a hot spot for these creatures). If the toxic creatures spread past the quarantine zone, they could infect the human gene pool and permanently damage the human species.

Director Biography - Anna Stasek

I'm an animator, illustrator, storyboard artist, background artist, and designer, but more importantly, I'm a story teller at heart. I couldn't imagine life any other way. I believe the stories told with art, design and animation can change the world in a powerful, persuasive, fluid way unlike any other form of communication.

My current experimental animations focus on environmental hazards and their effects on humans and other organisms.

I want to create awareness with my current and future animated pieces, eventually create a brand, and sell ideas and products with my animated characters that will save this planet, its resources and help preserve diversity for future generations.
