Getting Buzzy with the Bees

HOAX Films had an incredible, eye opening experience producing this industrial video for the Bakersfield, California company, Pollen Bank. We got up close and personal with bees, bee hives, and experienced the importance of supplemental pollination.

Director and VFX Supervisor Meng Yang Lu directed the shoot, Cinematographer Thor Wixom came out with his steadicam and followed the bees from blossom to blossom.

Alexis Nelson and Renee Nelson produced, Ian Moore edited, Nick Sahakian caught all the buzzes with his boom mic, DIT and Color Shiblon Wixom, and Marley Gonzales came on board for hair/makeup.

A few behind the scenes photos… I think we had too much fun… oh bee-have!
