W + K Amsterdam have created a short documentary for Sea Shepherd. Established in 1977, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Our mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.
Sea Shepherd uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately balanced ocean ecosystems, Sea Shepherd works to ensure their survival for future generations.
In recognition of Sea Shepherd’s 40th anniversary and the ongoing achievements of the crew and volunteers, W + K Amsterdam’s film ‘Part-Time Heroes’ challenges the perception of stereotypes around the organization and sheds new light on its identity and actions. While also serving as an opportunity to project the voices of those brave volunteers who put themselves on the front line to fight illegal activities.
Created with The Kennedys and directed and edited by Quentin van den Bossche, the documentary is an immersive experience of life at sea and of fighting poachers. Putting viewers at the heart of the organization, the film shares with the audience that Sea Shepherd is made up of everyday people who are concerned about the World’s oceans, and reminds viewers why we love and need the ocean.
