    The Art of Aquaponics
    Perez, Henry (2020)
    The Art of Aquaponics, is an informational, animated short film, aimed at teaching people the basics of aquaponic production. The content is meant to help the viewer understand how it works, and also why it is something that I believe should be implemented on a larger scale in the US. The film covers production, science, and pros and cons. My goal is to get more people interested in aquaponics, so there can be a larger base of people pushing for it to be used regularly.
