Congratulations to the makers of “Our Ocean“, which has won an “Honor Award” and also “Best Micro Short” at the Pure Magic International Film Festival.
This is the latest of many festival awards for Our Ocean.
Fish City Festival
Dex and Troy are young sea turtles attending the 500th Anniversary of the Fish City Festival, an annual underwater celebration where they meet their angel fish friend Maya. Tragically, careless human activity from above threatens the festival with catastrophe.
Our Ocean was created by students in the fourth year of studies at Escape Studios, studying for their integrated master’s in 3D Animation.
