A kaleidoscope of fascinating marine species

Ocean Requiem is a short film by Howard Hall, with original music by Alan Williams. It contains images that are as breathtaking as anything found in The Blue Planet or the water parts of Planet Earth.

Hall said that he created the film as a subtle indictment of over-fishing and gill nets (it ends on a very sad image), and it's very effective at showing a great number of amazing species in a very short amount of time. It feels like many minutes could be spent on each scene...
