A Real Bug's Life

Broadcaster: Disney +

Presenter: Awkwafina

Inspired by the World of Disney and Pixar's “A Bug's Life,” the new Disney+ Original Series from National Geographic, A REAL BUG’S LIFE, is an incredible adventure into nine different micro bug worlds around the globe, where the forces of nature play out on a miniature scale and where tiny creatures rely on amazing powers and extraordinary alliances to make it through each day. 


This is a beautiful series from Nat Geo all about the intricate world of bugs and insects. It's based on the 1998 Pixar produced animation film 'A Bug's Life', which I remember watching extremely fondly. One of the episodes I worked on is called ‘The Busy Farm’, produced by the very splendid Nathan Small. I grew a small wildflower meadow from seed and stuck it in my studio to capture a range of growing and flowering meadow shots. Almost certainly one of the more ambitious and lengthy projects I’ve undertaken and I’m absolutely thrilled that my shots made it into the final piece. I was also tasked with capturing day to night and night to day timelapses on location at the farm. Three days of walking continuously between various motion camera setups to gradually change the exposures. 

Big thank you to Plimsoll Productions for giving me this opportunity.
