Mister Lee has recently begun work on a new project for Friends of the Earth Netherlands; we’re now in the script phase.
In the Netherlands, they are called ‘Milieudefensie’ which means ‘Environmental Defense’. Milieudefensie has recently updated their identity, see www.milieudefensie.nl. The film we’re making presents the sharpened goals and approach of the organisation.
The message basically is: we humans can not longer continue to do things the way we’ve been doing them in the past few decades because we’ll inevitably run into ecological boundaries. It’s a very general meta-story in a way, but one that really needs to be heard; when it comes to social and environmental issues, scope and complexity are often overwhelming.
However, now that more people begin to realise that old stories and solutions no longer work, there is a growing desire and willingness to formulate a new shared story for the future.
Expect production updates in the time to come!

Hi Janelle – and thank you for your question ;-)
Bluefin Tuna sounds like a good and interesting, (although unfortunately also very serious) topic for a school presentation! The best thing you could do is send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and The Black Fish will get back to you. It’s extremely busy at their office, but they’re going to do their best to help you out!
Kind regards, Douwe,
Director of The Black Fish film ;-)
A sneak peek of the colour graded opening scene!
It’s been rather quiet on the blog, for the simple reason that we don’t have time to post. An insane amount of work has been done, from 3D modelling cities to an underwater world, a frankensteinish supertrawler, characters in both 2D and 3D, a political cartoon, titles, edits, music, voice-recording and much, much more.This thing has been on our minds every day for the last months.
And now, there’s land on the horizon. On the 26th there’s a premiere of the film in Amsterdam and we’re working super hard to that super hard towards that deadline, making every effort to increase the production quality.
Stay tuned folks ;-)

Hi Andres! The ‘red carpet premiere’ is the 26th of May, but the public premiere will be about 6 weeks later. This is due to the physical campaign The Black Fish are soon starting, and we need to really think about how we approach the online campaign — the entire world should see it ;-)
Kind regards, Douwe.
