A couple notes on the video:

– Some astronomers refer to Planet X as ‘Planet Nine’.

Have We Been Lied To?

Agribusiness seeks to keep us in the dark, but this animated video shines a light on the truth.

We created this video for FARM USA to show many of the standard practices of animal farming. While many videos on the topic include shocking imagery of animal suffering, our animated approach allows the audience to learn about beak clipping, tail docking, cage restrictions, and more, without being confronted with graphic footage.

WebMD – Food Additives 101

We created this video for WebMD to help clarify some of the confusion surrounding food additives:
