As I have had previous experience in filmmaking and animation for several years now, I wanted my HSC major work to be the culmination of everything I have learnt throughout my time, utilising a significant amount of computer generated imagery. I decided to create a short film based off the game Subnautica, as I was captivated by the sense of exploration and adventure. The visual design and significant marine focus of the game also stood out to me, as I have always had a fascination with the ocean. Drawing upon current marine issues such as coral degradation and unsustainable fishing I wanted to remind the audience about the underlying beauty of our aquatic environment. Working on this film for the past year has taught me about perseverance, cooperation and teamwork, as I could never have completed my work without the help of others. I hope audiences feel inspired and uplifted, admiring the stunning beauty of the ocean and the steps we can take to ensure a sustainable future.
