My project is about the sea, because this is where I spend a lot of time and get inspired. Some areas in Greece are protected breeding grounds for the Loggerhead Sea Turtle or Caretta Caretta, and my animation is about the moment when the turtles hatch on the beach. I would like to share the hatching process of these endangered species with my friends and colleagues, which happens only at specific seasons and beaches; and consequently hope that everyone will, “like, share and follow,” this project on social media.
