Ocean Action film for Greenpeace

Director Jens Blank of Animate Me! sent us this short animation he created for Greenpeace which forms part of their ongoing campaign against the illegal fishing practices that take place inside the EU…

Blank apparently turned the 90-second animation around in two weeks but the result is, dare we say, a lovely take on a decidely unlovely subject matter.

More detailed information on the work that Greenpeace is doing to bring attention to the damage being done to the world’s oceans and marine ecosystems is at greenpeace.org.uk/oceans.
