"Drowning" is a short piece created in an attempt to tackle the ideas of climate change, climate denial and their impact on the common man.  The script is compiled completely from found sources including blog posts of first hand hurricane accounts, interviews and scientific facts.  The main design element is that of a continually rising waterline surrounding the audience.  As the waterline rises, so does a stormy atmosphere that underscores the journey of one man through the aftermath of one such storm.
