Trick Shark

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Hong Kong and mainland China dominate the international shark fin market. A 50% share of all worldwide traded shark fins goes into this market and 80% of the fins landed in Hong Kong are then shipped to the Chinese mainland. In 2003 this amounted to 11,000 tons and the market is growing each year by 5%. 3,500 tons are delivered directly to the Chinese mainland.

The term finning is the cruel practice of cutting off a shark's fins, often while the animal is still alive. The shark trunk is then thrown overboard as superfluous ballast. Shark fins only make up about 14% of the shark's total weight, but they bring considerably more money on the international market than shark meat. If in rare cases finning is prohibited, people have no scruples and poach.

Finning is a cruel but lucrative business. In Asia one kilo of shark fins is worth an average of USD 100.

Great

Well you just took the viewer on an emotional rollercoaster on this one, you were able to take the mood any which way you wanted too. I thought your serious parts were great but the musical numbers had to be the best part of your flash short, just so much joy and fast editing it was hard not to take appreciation. The graphics were superb and the song was catchy.

Seriously Good

The serious elements to this flash were unparallel to any other.

simply beautiful

this flash was really excellent, and somewhat underlooked. the music was probably the best thing about it, and the concept was neat too... loved the faux drama. creative editing too, it was kinda like watching a film. or a really strange alternative music video. keep up the good work

Good idea.

Such a creative flash. It really started to fuck around with my feelings.

i have somethin to say

good movie, and i think the shark has every right to kill humans. its only fair. we kill them much more than they kill us.
