ABOUT

Deep Fears is a student animated thesis short film about a sea otter who's afraid of the ocean. He's challenged to face his fears when he loses his precious pink shell necklace at sea.

Inspired by a death of a loved one, fellow friends, animated children TV shows, and Pixar short films, Deep Fears presents a tale about death, grief, and the value of friendship under its simplistic art direction and family-friendly story.
