THE DIVINING BELL
MEAN WATERBUD PRODUCTIONS
Editor & Colorist
Examiner, the last human left in this world, is tasked with taking special care of a fragile ecosystem in a harsh, ever-dark world. When parasitic creatures threaten Examiner’s way of life, it’s up to them to fight and protect the home they devoted their life to.
In a time when divisiveness, apathy, and egotism encourage violence and xenophobic hatred in present-day America, we felt that a film needed to be made about the universality of love toward an environment (a non-human character) and a grounding of ‘self’ in its care. Additionally, as creators in a society built on arbitrary gender-binaries and stereotypes associated with the two, we sought to create an empathetic, non-binary character who demonstrates integrity, intelligence, bravery, and emotional maturity without the restrictions of an assumed gender.
