How I See the Ocean

Description

A response to the question "How Do You See the Ocean?" I see the ocean as a natural source of power to people. I find that going to the ocean brings life back into beings who have lost themselves along the way. However, I also see the ocean as a swirling mass of plastic pollution. Our simple decisions, such as not picking up a plastic bag blown aside by the wind, can have deadly consequences in the marine world - that same plastic bag being mistaken by a turtle as food. I want to raise awareness of the catastrophe that has been caused by the simple actions of people's refusal to clean up after themselves, whilst still showing the natural beauty of the ocean, and why it deserves to be saved. All the trash and waste included in this video was found as shown on the beach, and it was all picked up and thrown away/recycled directly after filming. Filming took place on the Santa Monica beach over the course of two days. The bunch of plastic bottles and waste seen in the narrow video was from the 2011 first flush at the Pico-Kenter storm drain in Santa Monica, on October 4th. The videos of people cleaning up the beach are from a beach clean up earlier this year, put on by Santa Monica High School's Team Marine. Facts and statistics come from greenpeace.org.
