Into the Deep

Session 2 | Winter 2022

Narratives by Nature

Cole Krivak & Siena Jekel

In this project, we made a documentary-like animated short exploring the midnight zone of the ocean and the unique creatures it contains. The deep-sea is relatively unknown and unexplored. This project aims to educate people on the wonders of the deep. Because of the lack of sunlight and other resources most creatures would need to survive, the animals in the deep sea need to develop unique traits in order to live. Animals like the yeti crab use arms covered in hairs to sift for bacteria in the water or something like the angler fish uses bioluminescence to lure other fish to it.
