Swarm of Bees


After Effects / Photoshop

Animation, Compositing, VFX

Swarm of Bees was developed as a Storyhive pitch for a comedy webseries by Melanie Jones and Steve Moody. The filmmakers shot a proof-of-concept scene in which the two heroes – washed-up Detective Mulholland and his partner, Bees – are staking out a suspect in an international crime ring. The character of Bees, who is quite literally a jar full of bees, was shot as a ‘puppet’ jar on set, and I later animated the bees and composited them into nearly every shot in the scene.
