At the age of 13, I had a simple question. What happens when we throw plastic away? The more I learned, the more I realized how big the problem is—and the more it scared me. But rather than be afraid, I decided to do something about it! That was the beginning of the Kids Can Save The Planet documentary series. Issues that face our planet—from a kid’s perspective!
Here’s my latest video, Political Climate. Below, you’ll find the other videos I’ve directed and produced.
Dylan’s other videos
I followed plastic trash to where it ends up—with some surprising results. Did you know you might be eating plastic for dinner tonight? In this video, I show how kids (and adults!) can help make a difference in a world that is increasingly dependent on plastic. “Plastic Is Forever” features some of the top minds in the field, including conversations with the Environmental Protection Agency, the Surfrider Foundation, the Whale and Dolphin Conservation, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and more.
There is one issue that unites us all, no matter what part of the world you live in. It’s climate change. In “Tipping Point,” we explore the ways that humans have impacted the Earth. What is climate change? What is being done about it? And what can you do to help? It’s a multi-faceted look at the issues—from a kid’s perspective! We even explore how cows can change the weather! Featured content includes the Woods Hold Research Center, politicians from across the country, the Alliance For Climate Education, O’Neill Sea Odyssey, The Climate Reality Leadership Corp, and more!
“Everything Connects” explores how communities can develop zero waste strategies, and looks at building a sustainable lifestyle for today, and for future generations. Once you watch this documentary, you’ll gain a better understanding about how everything we do affects the planet. And how the actions of others are affecting your life.
