We were approached by Immediate to design and animate their concept for a RSPB film explaining how nature can help us fight the climate crisis and ensure birdsong never falls silent. The changing of day to night is rhythmical, becoming quicker as the negative effects take place and the sounds get more aggressive, only to balance out once a more positive outlook is introduced. The scene opens with an idyllic country side day. Framing the visual is a forest, with birds landing and tweeting. In the background, centre of the frame, is a small city. Day moves to night, and the scene is silent except for crickets and an owl. The next day, the city begins to expand. The scene becomes more of a city scape, although the wildlife isn’t noticeably affected. Night falls again, but the lights start to come on in the city. The construction in the city starts to increase, as it expands further. A road is built. Fewer birds are tweeting, but the forest isn’t particularly reduced. Night comes once more, but the city continues to expand. As day approaches, there’s only one bird visible. The city is releasing smog and continuing to grow busier. The trees start to suffer. A single person emerges, and plants a tree. At night, the city continues to thrive, with artificial lights virtually making the night seem like day. When day arrives, more people plant trees. Birds start to land and more people begin to observe and take photos of them. At night, the city is still lit aggressively, but more sounds of nature are introduced. When day comes, the amount of people replanting, bird watching and enjoying nature increases. The nature sounds slowly come back in, and the smog decreases. We see less cars, more bikes and e buses. At night the lights initially turn on, then off again. A few remain, but that natural sounds are more prevalent. Balance is restored. The City is thriving and everyone is enjoying nature, while the wildlife has returned.
