Mission: Marine Life
2016, High School, Film
It is good to educate ourselves on things that destroy our planet, like ocean pollution. But, when you hear all these devastating facts it can leave a person feeling hopeless and helpless. When I began my research for this project I felt overwhelmed with all the horrible facts about plastic pollution. I could only see the negatives at first. Once I found the ways I could help, my hopeless feeling turned into an excited and happy feeling. So in my film, I didn’t want to discourage people by telling them all our problems. I want to encourage them by sharing solutions. With my film, I presented the information on plastic pollution in an entertaining way that hopefully empowers people to make a change when it comes to plastic. That simple thought is what inspired my film. I tried to present as many solutions as I could find and really encourage people to take on a big role in this issue. I felt that if the same information is presented in a new way it has a better chance to affect people.
