Heal The Hive
Collaborators : "The Hive" ft. Rachel Isaak, Mitch Thompson, Joseph Portillo, Tiffany Ruaro, Nghi Le
Overview : The story of family that runs Bee Healthy Honey Shop.
Audience : This will interest younger people who are concerned with the enviornment and want to help.
Objective : We want the audience to take away a higher respect for bees and beekeeping, maybe even a drive to keep bees in the future.
Audio : We will hear light hearted, happy music with some live sound, along with the voices of the family behind the Bee Healthy Honey Shop.
This film will begin with a time lapse of us walking up to the front of the shop. Because of all the hexagonal wood shelves and the golden colors of the shop, the imagery will have a very warm and almost homey feel to it. With all the honey jars and the products on the shelves, it will begin with a basic overview of the shop and the daily routine of the store owner. This will be accompanied by warm music and to set up more of the feel that this is a nice place and that bees are nothing to be afraid of. We will follow this up with an interview of the person behind the counter, asking them questions about the shop and their family history. During this interview, we will show photos of their family and possible footage as well. So we will stage a tour of them to lead us back and showing us their bees. We will talk about how they switched locations and how that impacted them. We will go over any difficulties They've been having with their bees, whether it be GMO, swarming or anything of the sort. Any other environmental issues in the bay area or in general will be a big part of this documentary as well, showing that everything has impact on nature and beekeeping in general. Bees are a huge part of nature and unfortunately they are dying species. We will to do our best to alert the public about this issue, and show them why bees are so important along with give them a higher respect of the amazing creatures. We will talk about how the bees communicate with each other and make honey, hopefully giving a deeper insight to what goes on in the hive. Animation will be a good part of this section, giving us more control over how it appears and showing the process of their communication.
