Private Project


: In this stop-motion short animation we envision a world where seagulls, with their intelligence and adaptability, have become an unexpected ally in the fight against environmental pollution. At least it seems so. In response to the increasing pollution and waste in their habitats, seagulls have evolved an extraordinary ability to recycle garbageThe seagulls weren't merely scavenging for food but actively separating and organizing the waste they encountered.Also the seagulls had developed a preference for one specific type of garbage: Yellow colored things. But why do they collect only yellow things?
