The deep sea is a strange and curious world of tentacles, fins, claws and tails. Of creatures not yet discovered and myths of those that never existed. SeaStory is a new streaming platform sharing stories that inspire people to protect the ocean's future. In this challenge, learners will pitch a short film idea for SeaStory and create an exciting storyboard that reels the audience in.
