The Little Angler

Subject: In this short film from 2017 we follow a juvenile frogfish (probably Antennarius striatus) on a feeding spree. The unquenchable appetite of this little frogfish is remarkable. Frogfish are apex predators of shrimp and fish. Anything of the same size or smaller approaching the anglerfish becomes potential prey.

Technique: By adding a “cartoon” generator together with motion lines, audible sound effects and Polynesian music I turned this short video clip into a real South Sea Islands themed cartoon.
