Ted the Shark

Ted the Shark

Best Short Animation Nathalia Rojas Colombia, Animation, 11’

Ted is a six-year-old hammer shark with a big secret: His mind is connected to a human girl. This uniqueness often makes Ted alienated from his world (a feeling many of us are familiar with) however, little does he know how special this connection is. Although everyone in Ted's world knows that humans exist, they don't realize the damage they have caused in their reality, the garbage monster is getting bigger and bigger and the adventure of discovering where it comes from and how to defeat it is just beginning. Ted will have to teach his friends emotional tools to deal with the fear and uncertainty of an endangered world.
