Genetically Modified Organisms

Project Description

The present video fragment is my contribution (illustration and animation) to a short informative video made to inform the public about the influence of cultivating Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) crops. Multinationals like Monsanto and Syngenta genetically modify seeds for them to grow efficiently and to be resistant to pesticides. These pesticides are then used to fight weed and bugs. Over time, weed and bugs get resistant to these pesticides, resulting in so called super weeds and super bugs. Super bugs can then contaminate other crops, by furtulizing neighbouring fields. The GMO seeds then take over the entire crop. The fragment I made is meant to visually support this story when being told by a voice over.
