Footprint is an animated short film created by Massie Hashemi, produced at Texas A&M College of Architecture. It follows Ava, a little girl who stumbles across a baby sea turtle wedged in a bottle. Throughout the struggle to release him, Ava witnesses first-hand the bigger issue that threatens the lives of many marine animals, that her ocean has become a global garbage can.
Massie is the writer, director, and animator for this project. She started this team a year ago and built up a team of 15 people from seven countries to help her so far. Now, she is seeking new talents who have a passion for animation and planet Earth, specifically, issues related to animals’ rights to join her team.
