OPG wanted to create awareness around the dangers of fishing and swimming too close to hydro dams. Working with acclaimed animation studio Aardman, we cast a new spin on the classic fish tale. In “Stay Clear, Stay Safe,” a fable told in campfire song, Dammy the beaver spends his entire life in search of “the big one.” It seems he’ll never make his catch–until one momentous day when his luck truly takes a turn.
