This short film showcases how the ocean’s wildlife have both adapted, and mutated, to their new surroundings. Without any change to pollution being seen in the immediate future, these creatures have had to make the best of what they now consider “home”.

Director Statement

We think that we are one of the last generations, if not the last one, to be able to change things. We started to develop some ideas around this, based on the original concept we created around hybridization of marine life and trash, depicting what was to us at the time a vision of the future. We wanted something realistic to tell the audience, ‘what you’re seeing looks real because it’s almost real in our world.
