A music video directed by Heath Ledger has debuted 18 months after his death.
The 'Dark Knight' actor conceived the video for US rock band Modest Mouse to raise awareness of whaling off the coast of Australia.
Filming for the track 'King Rat' was not completed before Ledger's death, however, it was finished in his honour by a partnered video company.
The animated video is being released in conjunction with Modest Mouse's EP, 'No One's First, And You're Next'.
All proceeds from the downloads of the video during the first month on iTunes will go to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, who strive to protect wildlife in the oceans.
In the past, Ledger, who died in January 2008, directed music videos for the late singer-songwriter Nick Drake and Australian hip-hop artist N'fa.
