Wild Reverence (2014)

Wild Reverence: Animation sample from Tess Martin on Vimeo.

Wild Reverence: The Plight of the American Wild Steelhead chronicles one of the most sought after fish on the planet and the severe decline of wild populations.

Directed by Shane Anderson, it features about three minutes of animation made by myself using a marker on glass frame by frame technique and some After Effects compositing. Above you can see one of the segments, and below a few stills. Learn more about the documentary here: http://www.northforkstudios.net/
