Finalizing Assets & Style
As both environmental sustainability and animation are two subjects I have a large interest in, this acted as a fulfilling experience to explore both topics. While animation techniques were challenging to learn and execute, I found myself with a clear vision throughout the whole process.
In the end, my hope is that this video acts as an engaging way to introduce the topic of honeybee population decline to a younger audience and instills further interest in the topic.
