We created this film using stop motion animation. All the props used in the film were obtained from a beach cleanup we performed at Kaiser Park in Brooklyn, NY. We were inspired by how litter was different in the city than in suburban and rural areas as well as our mutual passion for conservation. As we collected litter we found pieces that formed a story. Some things we’ve learned from creating this film were that as people, we should be aware of what we throw on the floor and how that impacts our daily lives. Also, we should think about our individual impact on the environment. We learned how to be better advocates and how to respect our environment. Our group members created this film in less than five days. In addition, for many of us this was the first time creating a film.
