2017, Middle School, Film
I regularly go to the Florida coast to visit my grandparents. It seems like each time I go to the beach there are more plastic bottles on the shoreline and more plastic bags flying around in the wind. I elected to make a documentary movie so that I can show people how even small actions can have a large impact on the earth’s oceans. Additionally, the film format gave me a good way to show ways in which people are working to solve the enormous problem of plastics and microplastic in our water. These five minutes have the ability to make someone stop and consider the harm they may be causing when they do not recycle, and dump their trash on the beach.
