Save Our Snails
In a small village one man stands against injustice, it his goal to bring the plight of the snails to the people. He has set-up a local sanctuary to rehabilitate injured snails and reintroduce them back into the world. A chance encounter leads him onto the trail of a notorious snail napper who wants to rid the neighbourhood of snails.
This film is about where I came from, a quirky little village with a lot of heart.
My neighbour had this anti-snail obsession and I remember asking him once why he was salting the ground, he replied something along the lines of snails are scum. I took this idea and reversed it, what if there was someone who felt the opposite about snails. He had this metal meshing around a plot which kept them out and I thought what if there was one that kept them in and let them recover.
With the world looking bleaker as time goes by I want to create a hero. One who doesn't have to safe the earth from an alien invasion, one who doesn't have to save the damsel in distress, one who just has to save the snails.
