What is your wish for this project?

To "goggle" means to look with your eyes wide open. Mermaid Goggles hopes to assist other children in directing movies about issues in their own local communities in order to have a voice to share problems and/or solutions that impact them. Mermaid Goggles wishes for children to express their creativity and concerns and make their community see their world with eyes wide open.

How did it go?

It was amazing! We had over 400 films submitted from all over the world and 14 were chosen for the screening over 3 days at the Garden State Discovery Museum. The movies were amazing! You can view them all on the Mermaid Goggles FaceBook page. We also instructed in film making skills all over the regional, training over 150 kids how to make animated movies and to use the skill in a way that helps others. Here are the links: more
