New Short Film from Dudes on Media

It’s our newest short film and we’re pretty darn proud of it. “Gyre: Creating Art From a Plastic Ocean” is a film we pitched to National Geographic earlier this year. We were honored when they agreed to tell the story with us. The film will be announced in the September issue of The National Geographic Magazine. Here is the trailer and a little more about the film, which comes out August 20, 2013.

Gyre: Creating Art From a Plastic Ocean

Join the Gyre Expedition for a close-up look at how garbage impacts our planet. This team of scientists, artists, and educators journeyed into the Alaskan wild this summer to study and gather marine debris. What they collected will become part of a 2014 traveling exhibit that seeks to bring the environmental harm of trash into perspective. The project was launched by the Alaska SeaLife Center and the Anchorage Museum.
