Short of the Week: 'Let's Pollute'
Aug 4, 2020

Geefwee Boedoe is the mastermind behind this parody of 50's-styled advertising. The film steps into the average day of a polluting family, with one tongue clearly in cheek, stating how vital pollution is towards keeping the economy strong.

Boedoe wrote, directed, animated and produced the film with animation help from Tim Crawfurd and post-production help from a small team of mostly volunteers. It was nominated for Best Animated Short Film at the 83rd Academy Awards. Click the video link above to watch this week's featured short, Let's Pollute.
