Director Statement

I worked hard on Peat and Patty's message by combining personified animals, dramatic news prompts and a fragile environment susceptible to devastation. The film is meant to evoke empathy from viewers with its environment depending on the success of a single science experiment. Yet I bring all these elements come together to give you a comical experience. But, more importantly, the film drives you to analyze your own environmental condition and think 'what can I do to help?'
