BBC Winter Olympics – Nature directed by Tomek Bagiński

I’m not really interested in the Winter Olympics, but I must say that I have an undying appreciation for nature. Humans (at least in first world countries) rarely feel the destructive power that nature possesses let alone consider it at all. Having spent a number of years camping and trekking through America I’ve come to respect nature as a force that can not only sustain life, but wipe it away without a care. Tomek Bagiński has done an excellent job creating a video spot which captures the cold, harsh reality of the winter games. Take a look at some of the amazing concept work below and be sure to check out the credits to see who did what in creating this amazing spot.
