Waves of emotion.

I Am Water: “Dreaming” - 1 min 36s

All Mighty Pictures have good form when it comes to charitable causes. Their recent WWF film gave audiences an elephant's eye view of poaching - now director Anthony Dickenson shoots this lyrical piece for conservation group I Am Water.

The film charts a young girl's growing fascination with the ocean. While the narrator initially describes it as "a rich man's paradise", her natural curiosity wins out. With the right guidance, she and future generations can enjoy the ocean's riches.

It's a timely communication. Blue Planet II has brought marine conservation to the fore; now I Am Water aim to help coastal towns and villages protect their waters. Languid photography and a reverent tone lend weight to the organisation's message.
