Citoplasmas made a clay animated and pixilated film about fish farms in Chile.
From what it looks like - the team at Citoplasmas are trying to educate people about the process of fish farming. I've heard fish from fish farms are the worst kinds of fish to eat, since they are kept in sickly ponds where they live in their own waste. Then they are over-treated with anti-biotics and other chemicals which we in turn later eat. All those points seem to be covered in the film, which is somewhat of an interesting topic to turn into stop motion. It always amazes me how stop motion just works great in so many types of films. Is there anything stop motion can't do? Here is is from Vimeo:
That isn't the only film that the group from Chile has made. They have a web site that features many more films, what looks like a workshop and also behind the scenes pictures. For now the site is only in Spanish, but they seem to be working on translating the site into English and French. You can check the site out with all those things by going to http://www.citoplasmas.com/.
