Wow. I stumbled upon this movies at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and was staggered by how good it was. The director talked after and it was so interesting to hear about how he created the film and did ALL the animation by hand! There are thousands of illustrations of this sea life that was discovered by the gentleman that the film is about and I had never even had an interest in marine life. But, it was realy interesting. Beautiful to look at and great music, too.
