2013 Year in Review

You won’t believe everything we’ve packed into 3 minutes — you’ll see everything from embryonic stem cells being cloned and India launching its first spacecraft bound for Mars, to forest fires that polluted Singapore and Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio being elected pope.

Breadnbeyond asks you to contemplate what we have done in 2013, and be responsible for the upcoming 2014.

Explainer video script:

Have you heard of the “butterfly effect”?
It’s the idea that a very small natural force may produce a large one over a period of time; for instance, the fluttering of a butterfly’s wings may set off a breeze that will grow into a large storm.

So, our actions as human beings, no matter how small, might also have a great effect worldwide. The more reason we should reflect on this and be responsible in every action we take.

Let’s see how this “effect” played out in 2013. We’ll just hit the “replay button” and revisit just a few world-altering events.

In northern Africa the Islamist Ansar Dine group whose terrorist actions of torture and execution forced the French military to launch a five month campaign into Northern Mali.
In North Korea, the decision by one powerful dictator to restart a nuclear weapons program has led to more severe international sanctions.

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina was elected the 266th Pope, and took the name Francis to become the first Jesuit Pope, the first Pope from the Americas and Southern Hemisphere bringing hope to millions.

Back to mayhem… because two men decided to detonate bombs at the Boston Marathon, three people died and 264 were injured, and thousands of city residents were affected by police activity.

Scientific research proved that an embryonic stem cell can be cloned, a long-sought step toward harnessing the potential power to treat many human diseases.

A single cloudburst lasted for days creating flash floods and landslides in the Indian states of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh.

During a normal landing approach to San Francisco International Airport, the flight crew of Asiana Airlines made mistakes which resulted in a crash that destroyed the aircraft.

Meanwhile, in Singapore, haze and air pollution caused by a forest fire created the greatest health risk in the country’s history.

A handful of al-Shabaab Islamic militants attacked the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi in a bold act of terror.

The decision by a minority of legislators forced the shutdown of the United States government throwing 800,000 people out of their jobs and costing taxpayers 25 billion dollars.

The dream of a few scientists was fulfilled when India launched its first spacecraft bound for Mars, a complex mission that is hoped will advance technologies for all humanity.

And the world mourned the passing of Nelson Mandela who proved that the personal sacrifices of an individual could bring freedom and democracy to millions.

So, in the blink of an eye, or the flutter of a butterfly wing, one person, or a single event can transform and change the lives entire populations.

But we can’t just stop and stare as the world changes before us as if life were watching a television program. We need to take part.

Anything we do, even if you think it’s insignificant, does in fact… matter. So, take action, be confident, and be responsible.


  • I would definitely work with Bread n Butter again. They were so responsive and very professional. My account manager was extremely helpful, and always put forth 110% effort to keep the project moving. I loved the speed and quality of the work they did for us. If you are thinking about hiring them as a provider, think no more. Just do it, and I promise you will be happy you did!

  • Amazingly we got this video animated and produced for $2,000. Amazing because of the quality and turn around time, when other vendors were all quoting closer to $10k.

    Daniel Barnett, WorkETC
  • Really liked your portfolio. Not just the quality, but the amount of work you've produced over the years. I was looking for a stable company with substantial experience in the industry to minimize my risk. Your about page resonated with me - I'm in a very similar situation as Andre was when he started BreadnBeyond.

    Edina Gardos, Point Blank Design
  • Extremely satisfied with the service quality produced by Andre & his team. I am one of the people who wont get satisfied in first mockup. If you work with Bread n' Beyond, you will see that they are always ready to go an extra mile. I came with a limited budget to BreadnBeyond for a small logo design project - but in the end I found so much scope for expansion with them that I couldn't help but re-hire them to produce a higher quality output, each time. The designs are impeccable & they pay very minute attention to the details. This is the most important thing for me & I am glad that I found this team. Looking to re-hire them for all the future design projects. A++++ Service, highly recommended!

  • Working with Andre and the BnB team really was a great experience. Communication is professional and proactive, their design and animation skills are very high standard. Our end product turned out to be FANTASTIC and totally delivered within schedule. I'm sure we'll work together again on a short term. Thanks guys!

  • We were delighted to work with Bread N' Beyond. They did go beyond and exceeded our expectations and hopes. The staff was patient and flexible, always finding ways to meet our needs. Their fast turn around time is the new standard my partner and I use for getting things done. The process was smooth and easy and the end result is that the video is great. We are so happy to see our company's video bright and clear for all the world to enjoy. Thank you ever so much Bread N' Beyond!

    Beverly Aabjerg, Cleverling
  • I had contacted another company before Breadnbeyond. They got back to me with only a text description of the story board without the drawings. What really sold me on Breadnbeyond is the story board with the picture and the text below it which showed me exactly what the video would look like. I got saw the story board of a previous video that was created for a colleague of mine. So decided to go with BreadnBeyond.

    Donald Sequeira, Cloud Select
  • I really like working with this team! They are mindful of my overall business objectives as well as my budget, and make appropriate suggestions (which I really appreciate).

    Tanya Nebo
  • We'd like to thank Bread n Beyond! Wonderful team to work with. Listened carefully to our concerns and helped us fine tune all of details. Great work.

    Andrea Bogar
  • Excellent work. Very responsive and professional.
