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.


  • This is a great animation studio. When I was not completely satisfied with the work that was initially done, they went above and beyond to fix everything I had problems with and meet my satisfaction. Would recommend to anyone.

  • Bread N' Beyond seemed to have a holistic solution for video creation (good animators, voice-over talent, and customer testimonials) that made me trust in the company's ability to deliver a professional solution. The value for the cost was really much greater than any company I spoke with during my initial search.

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!

  • I have worked with Andre on a number of occassions, hiring him on behalf of a client. Andre not only produces high quality work on time and to budget, he also gets us! And by this I mean that he works well & is understanding of the needs and restrictions that come with working with non-techy, not for profits. Andre is happy to revisit work and offer advice even after he's received payment and the job has closed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Andre and Bread n' Beyond to anyone sourcing graphic design work.

  • BreadNBeyond developed an incredible animation for me in less than 30 days. The deadline was tight and I wasn't sure they would be able to deliver but I was just blown away by the final product, and on top of that they delivered with a few days to spare. I highly recommend them and their services!
