Portland, Oregon is one of America's true centres of creativity.
Sure, the city might have lost part of its appeal to some due to near saturation-point media coverage (sorry guys!) but its music scene remains buoyant.

Kat Baumann then took charge of animation, which delves into the deepest depths of the dark blue sea.
Watch it now.
