Black Fish Documentary Poster
Example 1: Capturing the Orcas
-Connection to purpose: In our opinion when the whales were being captured it made us feel said and upset that they were removing these whales from their families.
Example 2: Actual footage of whale trainers interacting or being seriously injured and even killed by the orcas.
- Connection to purpose: Owners of Sea world blame the trainers who were killed by the whales.
Example 3: Whales are being mistreated or abused by the other orcas.
-Connection to purpose: Whales who are being mistreated by the other whales react the way they do towards the trainers because of the way they were treated by the other orcas.
The picture describes what SeaWorld is like for the Orcas. For the whales SeaWorld feels more like a cage therefore the picture is captioned "CageWorld". The whales need to be free instead of being held in captivity.
This is a picture of the former trainer Dawn Brancheau that was pulled under by Tilikum. In the documentary "Blackfish" SeaWorld blamed Dawn for what had happened to cover up what truly happened.
Killer Whale: Tilikum
This is a picture of the Orca Whale Tilikum that caused 3 deaths in total during his time at SeaWorld and SeaLand.
Example 1: Former Sea World trainers explain how the witnessed the way these whales reacted towards the trainers(death).
-Connection to purpose: Sea World owners lie and flaunt as if they don't or didn't know the whales are capable of killing.
Example 2: Trainers tell the truth on how Sea World has been lying and keeping secrets from them in order for them to work with them.
-Connection to purpose: In order to keep employees, Sea World owners didn't inform the trainers of the previous attacks nor did they attempt to either.
Example 3: Interviews with two other witnesses who were watching the show.
-Connection to purpose: When they explained what had happened it showed us that they shouldn't be held in captivity especially being that we don't know how the whales feels so that means the whales can react in any way towards anyone.
Example 1: Talking about Tilikum and how they captured him.
- Connection to purpose: Showed Tilikum's story, what they believed led to the attack and how intellectual Orcas really are. Strengthened our opinion on how they shouldn't be held in captivity.
Example 2: Talking about SeaWorld/SeaLand
- Connection to Purpose: Showed us how they hid secrets from the public eye and even their trainers in order to cover everything up so they wouldn't lose money.
Example 3: Former Trainer Dawn
- Connection to Purpose: Showed how SeaWorld blamed her for the attack claiming how she did things wrong when she hadn't. Used her a reason to cover it all up afraid of losing money
