Share the Buzz 
This project ("Share the Buzz") is a web-only video to raise awareness about the decline of the bee population. The video goes from restaurant to farm, showing the chain of supply in what we can all relate to: the enjoyment of dining in a good restaurant, the chefs preparing the food, the delivery of fresh produce to the restaurant, the farmer harvesting the produce, etc. Eventually we are told that none of this would be possible without the work of a bee, and the bees are disappearing. And if the bees continue to disappear, so will a major percentage of our food supply.

I am looking for a somewhat poetic reading of the script so that it has more emotional quality (as opposed to an elitist, luxury car-sounding read). This is NOT an advertisement nor a movie trailer and we are NOT selling anything, so please try performing this as much as a wise, cautionary tale as much as possible. It should almost feel like you are reading a bedtime story. There should be fragility and vulnerability in your voice. This is sad, but there is hope. You've seen it all, so you've come to terms with it, but you are concerned for the future and what it will hold for the children that inherit our current bad habits.

You are Mother/Father Nature. You have seen what has happened to our planet over the years and now the concerning decline of the bee population. You are telling this story to your grandchildren around the campfire to warn them of the dangers. Disney movie narrator...

Script Details

***custom demo required*** 
[poetic, vulnerable, non-advertisement, cautionary]

Behind every favorite restaurant… is a well-orchestrated menu.

Behind every great menu… is the care and attention given to each and every dish.

And for each dish served…is a chef crafting the night’s artistry.

And yet, behind the kitchen staff…are the people that make the dishes possible, by delivering fresh produce day-in and day-out.

Naturally, those who make the daily deliveries rely on the work of farmers, who care-for and harvest the produce season after season.

But even the most dedicated farmer depends on the essential work of…the bee.

And as the bee pollinates…so the world is fed.

[now more fragile]

Unfortunately, the bees are disappearing.

And with their decline, the farmer’s yield diminishes.

And those who deliver…carry only memories.

Chefs stir dreams of what once was.

Hand-crafted plates…are replaced with empty ones.

Menus fade...

And that once great restaurant…reaches its end.

[now with hope...a twinkle in your eye...]

Of course…it doesn’t have to be the end.

We can all learn more about the decline of our world’s pollinators. And by doing our part, we can help to bring back the bees.
