For Whale Conservation, A Beautifully Animated Spot Shows the Majesty of Those Animals

Gentleman Scholar Shows a Humpback 'Swimming' Through a Forest

Published on Nov 13, 2013

Editor's Pick

Gentleman Scholar makes a most impossible sight possible in a stirring, beautifully concepted and executed spot for Whale and Dolphin Conservation -- the sight of a humpback whale "swimming" through a giant, leafy forest. The spot, which envisions a world where every whale and dolphin is free, hopes to remind viewers that forest or sea, every part of nature is connected seamlessly. It also does double duty by making people aware of the enormous size of a humpback whale, which is even more clear when juxtaposed with trees and the forest.
