Earthjustice - Non-Profit - www.earthjustice.org
Some of the worst air polluters have dodged controls for decades, pumping dirty air that makes playing outside a dangerous game for kids across the U.S. Though 2011 brings unprecedented opportunities to clean up these polluters, only public pressure can counteract the polluter lobby's influence. A humorous video can help: in a dodgeball game between kids and pollution, large men dressed as mercury, soot, and other pollutants hurl dodgeballs labeled with diseases (e.g. asthma ) while kids counter with balls marked "health" and "clean air". The message: join the kids' team to ensure dirty industries…6,553 votes
Eco Value - Non-Profit - www.ecovalue.org.in
"Zahelu - The Connection" is about telling the urban youth that they are part of the nature. Usually, nature to them is something that one does on a Sunday or on a vacation.

And, whether they like it or not, they interact with it, and it affects them directly.
For the movie to be effective, it needs to be made creatively and with passion. I know I need your help to…2,529 votes

Wildlands Network - Non-Profit - www.wildlandsnetwork.org
We want a world without racism against animals -- predators, in particular. Myth, fear mongering and domination have led to the decimation of bears, cougars, and many other important species worldwide. Their disappearance is silently causing the collapse of habitats all around us. Few realize this signals our own demise. Predators are Nature's best managers. With a natural ability to maintain a balance between living things, they are our guardians, not enemies. An animated movie would call out the misguided human wildlife predator and inspire a new network of people to respect, protect and…191 votes

"The Meltese Dodo" is a movie about an intrepid detective (The Earth) who discovers the truth about climate change through a series of encounters with "reliable sources", including molds, yeasts and bacteria.
"The Brontosaurus Song" occurs in the first scene, as The Earth reflects on the positive qualities of the human species ("imagination, love, poetry" the kind of species you'd hate to lose") and thinks back to another fun species, the brontosaurus.
Free Range would create an animation to go with "The Brontosaurus Song" which we would use to promote our project, end unhappiness and…55 votes
