Don’t Fear Taking the Plunge (Video)

Four seniors from The School of Visual Arts literally dive into these questions and fears with their senior thesis film, Taking The Plunge. It’s an adorable, Finding Nemo-meets-Little Mermaid exploration of the unexpected dangers people face when under pressure to propose. What’s even better is that it ultimately challenges the idea that an engagement ring, a product of the wedding industrial complex, isn’t really needed to say, “I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you.” The movie’s creators manage to say so without speaking a word and with the help of an enamored squid.
