Born to be wild | AWI

A short animation made for Animal Welfare Institute and Animal Defense League of Arizona to push their anti-captivity message through social channels.

I was asked to create a short animation to help AWI and ADOA spread awareness and educate people about not swimming with captive dolphins. So I created an animation that contrasts the lives of dolphins in the wild with those in confinement. First showing the dolphin dreaming of a different world, then dramatically moving in to its reality of being captured for a ‘swimming with dolphins’ experience.
