An unexpectedly charming short about screen addiction and wildlife protection by Toronto-based filmmaker Isaac King. Animated entirely outdoors, “Whatever Tree” tells the story of a dead tree that goes viral thanks to an unwitting nature lover and a savvy social media influencer.

“Since the global pandemic began, our social media and smartphone dependance/addiction has increased, but so has the urge to connect with nature and the outdoors. “WhateverTree” highlights our connections, between humans and all life, in this time of crisis.”
