|Tackling pollution out of a sense of duty.
This is one of a number of documentary-style films made by start-up agency Hijinks Collective and a division of the Royal Navy dedicated to communications called The Phots. This execution introduces us to Imogen Napper, a Royal Navy reservist who grew up next to the sea who has spent much of her adult life pursuing ways of combating marine pollution.
Napper's calmly enunciated voice-over explains the harm that's been done because of our careless approach to waste disposal, and the way in which certain products are manufactured. Rather than simply present problems, this intrepid woman has helped create solutions... according to a super, her PhD research contributed to the removal of micro-plastics from many cosmetic products.
The juxtaposition of Napper surfing and garbage bobbing on the waves underlines the necessity of addressing this problem, and the role that can be played by those who have been helped develop a sense of purpose by their time in the Royal Navy. As Napper puts it so eloquently: "the Navy doesn't teach a sense of duty, it just helps you find yours".
