Donks: Toy parts assemble into chaotic deep sea creatures

Watch more with these video collections:

Explore a deep-sea world full of abandoned pieces of ocean plastic that assemble themselves into new chaotic creatures over and over again. Melbourne, Australia-based filmmaker Felix Colgrave writes:

“The name comes from a box of miscellaneous plastic objects my child has. Things that are not categorically blocks or figurines or anything describable. I referred to them as ‘gonks’, which was pronounced by my then-2-year-old as ‘donks’. This film was me making my own set of donks, and building silly things out of them.”

Set to a cacophonous soundtrack, the animation ends when a toy submarine is overpowered, providing a sort of whale fall for the ravenous toy part scavengers.
