You really should watch this 10 minute short film called The Ocean Maker:
It’s short, there’s no dialog, but it’s touching. There’s just enough story to get the general idea of what’s going on, mixed in with just enough plot. Additionally, it was made in just under 2 months on an Island in the Caribbean. It looks like it takes place in Australia though. It reminds me of the reverse of Water World. I hope that they submit this for the 2016 Oscars. It’s perfect for the short animated feature category.
