SKYWHALES, completed in 1983, is a short animated film that creates an entire world, down to the plants and animals clinging
onto the edges. It is a world of floating islands, inhabited by a race of green creatures who hunt the Skywhales, using fantastic
air-balloon ships and harpoon pods. It is a window onto an alien way of life--language, culture, taboos... in your humble
editor's opinion, it is as complete a picture as a short film has ever painted, and its final revelations are nothing short
This site will soon have images from the film; there is already general information on its creators
and how to find it. If the producers and other rights-holders allow, this site may even eventually have sound or video clips
from the film. Like the creatures of the story, that's all up in the air.
