Chingtien Chu/2017/3 min/Wildlife

FILM DESCRIPTION: This non-dialogue, high-quality animated short follows a young sea turtle’s ocean voyage through polluted water. As only 1 in 1,000 baby sea turtles survive to adulthood, this small film shows the big struggle facing marine life today.

Film Director Chingtien Chu was born on Penghu, a small island on the Taiwan Strait. Based in New York City, Chingtien recently received his MFA in computer animation at the School of Visual Arts, focusing on lighting, look development and compositing.
