We all love Radiolab… but to be fair, who doesn’t? This is an excerpt from one of our all-time favorite episodes, titled “From Tree to Shining Tree”. Our mission here in this internal piece was to convey the real world and the interconnected magical world, and their relationship to each other. It wasn’t about showing trees or bees or any other specific organism, but rather seeing everything as one complete system. We wanted our animation to be smooth, slow, and graceful. After all, this is the beauty of nature that we are talking about.
