SPLASH 2018
For their annual SPLASH fund-raising gala, the Seattle Aquarium commissioned Ikeda/Vanderburg to create a film about a participant in their Teen Ocean Advocate program, Ayanna Rojas.  This very personal testimonial gives insight into the work that the Seattle Aqurium does not only for the Marine Sciences, but as a beacon of opportunity for young people and a champion of diversity.

*BEYOND THE GALA:        
The piece will be used as a centerpiece for diversity and inclusion training within the organization and as an outward-facing promotional tool to inform the public how the aquarium's global conservation efforts are being carried out by inspiring young people.
