When FableVision's Taryn Johnson was at Hampshire College, she had the chance to work on an animated short film called The Incident at Tower 37. In the film, Tower 37 siphons every drop of water from a once-pristine lake, that is, until the station's steward makes a startling discovery. After making the film festival circuit over the past two years, winning a number of awards, the 3D-animated 10-minute film has been posted online for viewing.

Watch the film here!
