Bees are essential to our environment but their numbers are worryingly in decline. This 360 video takes you inside a hive to see these incredible creatures close up!
This was made for The Golden Company, an enterprise in East London to get young people involved in projects to help themselves get started in life.
I filmed this with the Samsung Gear 360 and stitched with After Effects and Mettle SkyBox Creator.
It was lit with 2 small LED panels inside the hive, daylight above and Aputure Lightstorm LS below.
