'Floating Garbage Patch' is a stop-motion animation made of bits of plastic found washed up on the shores of Britain and Hawaii. It explains how huge floating garbage patches of un-degradable plastic form in our oceans.

It was one of three films I was commissioned to make for feature length documentary, 'Plastic Shores'. Plastic Shores (plasticshoresmovie.com) is a non-profit educational film about the effects of plastic debris on our marine ecosystem directed by Edaward Scott-Clarke and produced by La Mode Verte. The feature aims to make people think about our use of disposable plastics and what happens to them after they have been thrown away. From the shores of Hawaii to California, Cornwall to Grand Cayman, the film tracks plastic pollution across the Atlantic and Pacific and explains what effects this pollution has on the marine environment, as well as human health.

The animation was produced by VooDooDog Ltd, Tom Sanders was assistant animator and the music and sound effects are by Howard Tamarisk.
