Gaia – 2020 – **Award-Winning** 3D Animated Short -Bournemouth University Masters Group Project

**Award-Winning** 3D Animated Short

‘Gaia’ is the story of an Australian Koala. In a traditional wooden theatre set, we follow our puppet koala (Gaia) to discover how innocent and playful she is when she comes down from her tree to investigate some strange lights and sounds from the forest. Soon she realises is a dangerous fire, and when she tries to escape she realizes there is no way out.

Gaia stands for ‘Mother Earth’. This piece is a social tribute for those animals lost in the Australian bush fires during this season. We want to thank our fire and volunteer service for conserving a vital part of our planet. There is no Planet B, and it is everyone’s responsibility to take care of it.
