Film & Campaign Description

  • Deep under the Sargasso Sea a determined flying fish (Jane Fonda) and a sassy European eel (Camila Cabello) run a gauntlet of perils in search of clear water, until they are welcomed into a protected sanctuary by a kind whale (Simon Pegg).

  • Sanctuary premiered on the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise in California in September 2023. The film was key to a social media campaign, it's purpose was to motivate supporters to join Greenpeace in urging governments to ratify the Global Ocean Treaty, to protect 30% of the world's oceans by 2030. 

  • The film was beautifully hand drawn in Toon Boom, scenes were roughly timed and keyed out, then each frame coloured and cleaned up. Underwater effects, along with a whole lot of smog and debris, were added in the comp. The end result is a hugely stylised and film, all set to a haunting musical composition.
