So the story goes:
As a child I went fishing with my Grandad in the sea, set off from Dartmouth Harbour in a boat called Ripley, we caught whiting, we caught Gernard, we caught mackerel, we caught bass., and the sea it was a larder for my Grandad and me.
And I follow the line, the infinity line, and I'm wishing, I was fishing and that everything was fine.
As a Father I went fishing with my sons in the sea, set out from Abersoch, in a boat called Jenny III, we caught nothing but a mackerel so small we threw it back, and the radar did not help us coz the fish it could not track.,
When my sons sons go fishing will there be something for them? Or will the barron empty seas, have nothing left to give, for my Grandfathers Father my Father and me, we have squandered these resources, and over fished the sea.
We have fished our last fish, fish our last fucking fish.., and so on until the sea can give no more.

I liked both graphic and music. This is a very nice work man, i like it very much and i wish i could do something like this by myself :-)
I can't say anything bad about this submission, maybe the only drawback in my opinion is that there aren't lyrics provided in the video, because reading text is easier for me than listening to the words... But it doesn't matter, here's your 10, and i hope you get award for this.

kyle-christie responds:

thanks. we thought about putting the lyrics up but when we done that in the past they seemed a bit distractive..hopefully the animation tells the story the song is telling (and more)...about overfishing, but not in a lecture way.
