Save Our Bees had its premiere at the Blue Plum Animation Festival at East Tennessee State…


This is clip from an animation that will be part of the save the bee campaign.  I plan on developing a series of shorts, games and other media to help promote the value and preservation of such an important critter in our ecosystem.  I hope to inspire and help educate our next generation in helping to create a healthy and vibrant world that can sustain all forms of life.
