And Special Thanks to all who have supported Deep Fears and the team behind the film.

Deep Fears is a proud production of CSULB. Everyone directly involved behind the scenes are all students of CSULB: musicians, editors, sound designers, and animators. There was no help outside of CSULB, no digital tricks/filters/After Effects used, no roto-scoping, and no tracing of any kind. Everything in this film: illustrations, backgrounds, animation, and music was done by CSULB talent.

I definitely would like to see this.
Pray there aren't any Orcas out there though.

DeepFears responds:

Luckily there are no orcas!

But there will be someone in the film with a sadist attitude as big as an orca, maybe bigger.

Wow! This looks promising! looking forward to the feels!

DeepFears responds:


Whenever I'm able to post the film freely here, I hope my attempt at directing an emotional story makes the feels come in like a wave!

I usually don't like trailers but that was beautifully well done. I hope to see the full production once you're finished!

DeepFears responds:

Thank you!

I hope you enjoy the finished film when I upload the film soon!
