Anton Groves’ short Waste is an environmentally conscious tale that uses a rather unique way to get you thinking about conservation. Hitting beats that border on quirky romantic comedy, the film follows Dan as his is blissfully unaware of the little monsters that his wasteful habits are creating. Utilizing cardboard and various fabrics to create the monsters, Groves and his team are able to get their message across in a fun and artsy way. The best part is that Groves gives the viewer the opportunity to create their own little waste monster via free PDF downloads from the film’s website. While Waste ’s final moments take an unexpected turn, it does not hinder the oddly entertaining charm of the film.
