Behold one of the greatest massacres in natural history – Japanese Giant Hornets (Vespa mandarinia japonica) (the world’s largest hornet) versus European Honey Bee (Apis mellifera) (our favorite honey producer),
The hornets often attack honey bee hives with the goal of obtaining the honey bee larvae. A single scout, sometimes two or three, will cautiously approach the nest, giving off pheromones which will lead the other hornets to the hive’s location. The hornets can devastate a colony of honey bees: a single hornet can kill as many as 40 honey bees per minute thanks to its large mandibles which can quickly strike and decapitate a bee. It takes only a few of these hornets a few hours to exterminate the population of a 30,000-member hive, leaving a trail of severed insect heads and limbs.
We were lucky enough to find the original documentary narration from which used the creators of this song – National Geographic’s “Hornets From Hell“, but we predominantly used footage from another great documentary – BBC’s Natural World episode “Buddha, Bees And The Gaint Hornet Queen”.
For the soundtrack to this massacare we used Audio remix of InsideInfo track “Honey Bee”. You can find it on their “Grow EP” which was released on 28th May 2012 on Viper Recordings.
Sealed behind heavy stainless steel doors, surrounded by concrete walls and being somewhere deeply underground is not an answer and escape from fears. Emergency situation is a battle for a life. For a life where every day will be emergency, be it even artificially created by a few without notice…
“Bunkergang” is a video created in collaboration with industrial music label “Sturm” and musicians from newly formed band “Autogen“. It represents our ongoing collaboration with local industrial sub-culture in Riga. Video material filmed by “Sturm” folks in real, still functional bunker. Song written by Kaspars Kalniņš from “Autogen” who is also one of the founders of former “Rosewater” – one of the most recognized industrial band in Latvia which set new quality standards and performed abroad as well.
Our team helped out with video editing, assembling all footage into one piece, laying out the “story” and adding some minor video effects.

It’s hard to be a child.
Every second 4 children are born.
Every 4 seconds 1 child die.
Every day more than 22 thousand children under five die, mainly from pneumonia, diarrhoea, malaria, HIV/Aids, measles and malnutrition.
Every year more than 6 million infants don’t survive even one day on planet Earth.
Every year more than 42 million children don’t even born because their mothers decide to abort them.
In this video we decided to show you the live of typical average child on planet Earth.
As sources for our video footage we used more than 100 documentaries, especially from series “Unreported World” and “Dispatches” from British Channel 4.
Music: Roy Davis Jr – I Have A Vision (Feat Erin Martin) (Fred Falke Remix).

Yogzatot Studio presents video “Army March Drawn Sword Police” for Japanese industrial / “Digital New Wave” band Gothika.
They saw our work for Latvian band “Whore Glamourama” during their performance in Riga in May 2008 and offered us to make a video on “Army March”.
This was one of our most difficult videos, took a lot of time to create conception and collect all the footage we needed.
We wanted to show interconnected and violent history of East Asia in 20th Century so we used footage from Russo-Japanese War, Chinese Civil War, Second Sino-Japanese War, WWII, Korean War, Japanese Student Protest Movements in 60th and Tiananmen Square protests of 1989.
