Ocean Plastic Pollution
BRIGHT SHADOWS is a short video series addressing global and environmental issues. With this series, we want to raise awareness about issues that are affecting our environment and the way we live. Therefore, we thought about how we can present these topics in a new form. We decided to create three settings, each focusing on one issue. We wanted to create an atmosphere that is comparable to an art gallery where the viewer takes their time to explore an image and discovers details within the frame.
In the first episode, we want to showcase ocean plastic pollution. Each year tons of plastic, harmful fluids and other materials find its way into our ocean. Coral reefs die and leaving no more habitat for millions of marine animals. Not only garbage from the land is a thread for the ocean, also old fishing gear that floats in the ocean is a trap for many animals. To underline this, we have created a setting in which you can find both the causes and the effects.
