Short film about collecting plastic to make a chair on a fishing boat at sea.
Since the discovery of the Pacific Garbage Patch in 1997, which is predicted to measure twice the size of Texas, five more have been found across the world’s oceans with the Atlantic gyre predicted to be even larger. This plastic takes thousands of years to degrade, remaining in the environment to be broken up into ever smaller fragments by ocean currents.
The gyre stretches from the coastlines of California to the shores of Japan. Recent studies have estimated 46,000 pieces of plastic per square kilometer of the world’s oceans. The number of plastic pieces in the Pacific Ocean has tripled in the last ten years and the size of the accumulation is set to double in the next ten.
Sea Chair is made entirely from plastic recovered from our oceans. Together with local fishermen, Studio Swine collects and processes the marine plastic into a stool at sea.

The next generation of fly fishermen are here to stay. They are passionate, motivated and knockin on the door of the sport. WorldANGLING is proud to open the door and tell their story. Will Griffiths is a native of the Pacific nothwest and had never cast at a permit before fishing with Will Benson and the crew from WorldANGLING. There is no denying that the future is bright, especially when you have the gods on your side and a permit on the end of your line!
