Video: Opening titles for Listening to Nature, Session 5 of TEDGlobal 2013

Posted by:


Buzzing past a hummingbird with its beak in a flower, narrowly avoiding a lawnmower and peeking in on a couple getting intimate in the bedroom — all part of a day in the life of a bee, which introduces session 5 of TEDGlobal 2013.  The natural scenes of this water-color animation come from Brett McManus with collaborators TBC.

South African-born McManus is a film director, animator, motion designer, art director, editor, photographer, painter and every other kind of creative mind you can think of.  He lives his life by the idea that we must always be pushing ourselves creatively and technically, and that we must never, ever be boring.
