Paralysed by the enormity of climate change and the sense of powerlessness it brings, a father experiences an existential crisis. Through this process, he discovers the concept of Interbeing – a philosophy that reconnects us with the natural world.
This principle is vital if we are to help our environment recover and regain balance between humanity and nature. Without it, humanity will continue to take from our planet and never give back.
Ben Sinclair began finding his passion for animation whilst studying at Kingston University, London. Experimenting with painterly and organic hand drawn animation, he began to realise how powerful this medium can be for educating and raising awareness about environmental and animal rights issues.
In 2021, he released ‘A trail of Lies’, narrated by Chris Packham – a film commissioned by Keep the Ban to uncover the cruelty and corruption behind fox hunting in the UK. Since then, he has brought out 3 more films under Fire Lily Studio – ‘Rewild Your World’, “Remember Remember” (both narrated by Megan McCubbin), and ‘Interbeing’.
After creating Fire Lily Studio, he hopes to build a team of animators and continue creating films that imagine a more ecologically-just future.
