Experiencing Interruptions?

Down To The Plastic Ocean

'ScubyDo' goes to the sea.

"Down To The Plastic Ocean" takes you on a magical lyrical journey that follows a plastic toy scuba diver from a storm water drain in Athens, Georgia through the streams and rivers to the edge of the coast.
This short film delivers an immersive experience from ScubyDo's point of view and compels the audience to reflect upon how to help keep our waterways and oceans cleaner.
"By 2050 our oceans could contain more plastic than fish.
Only you can stop the plastic ocean."
