Documentary "Animal Workers": Revealing the magical jobs in the animal world

Work is an important part of human social life. When human beings drag their tired bodies back and forth between two points and one line, when they see puppies playing happily on the lawn, they will feel a bit sour: "I really envy them that they don’t have to work!"

But you know what? Every species in nature needs to rack their brains and work hard to survive! From January 26th, at 12: 00 every Wednesday, the natural animal documentary "Animal Workers" jointly broadcast by iQiyi and Tencent Video will focus on the outstanding employees from all walks of life in the animal industry. The documentary also specially invited the voice actor Yang Zi to voice the Mandarin version as a narrator and interpret the interesting work of animals.

The university behind the magic job asked

There are 8 episodes of Animal Workers, which introduce small animals in different jobs in a relaxed and humorous way. It turns out that they are not only hunters and gatherers, but also unexpected occupations such as architects, musicians and undertakers! Moreover, their work has also brought very important inspiration to human invention and creation.

Many birds are "masters of architecture" in the animal kingdom, and they know how to build the most reliable safe haven in the crumbling branches and treetops: the lively starlings like to build their houses near their good friends’ homes, which is convenient for them to go back and forth in their leisure time; In order to show its domineering temperament and attract more young fans, the quasi-starling should pursue both space and beauty when building a house; African weaver birds think that safety and speed are the key to success, and usually they can build their own small homes in just a few days.

In the world of bees and ants, architecture is not only practical for living, but also scientific in structure and function. The regular hexagonal honeycomb structure has the highest density, the simplest materials and the largest usable space, which provides many inspirations for human beings in geometry, architecture and materials science. The ant nest above the ground is not only an air exchanger like the lungs and respiratory system, but also a protective clothing for the ant colony. In order to better operate the air circulation system, termites have to live the day of "007".

Interestingly, there are also "rowing kings" in the animal kingdom. They rarely take the initiative to attack, but rely on the labor results of other animals for a living. Black-backed jackals and ravens are the best among the "cute thieves", while scavengers like vultures play the role of "undertakers" and play an important role in the ecological cycle of nature.

Bring people closer to animals.

"Animal wage earners" embodies human’s careful observation and strange imagination of the animal world everywhere, and guides the audience to reflect on the relationship between man and nature, which is of great significance for popular science education.

Take the male satin-blue bowerbird as an example. The production and life of human beings have greatly occupied their territory. Originally, it used bright natural decorations to attract female birds to pair up, but now it has to use unnatural elements such as ballpoint pens, bottle caps and lighters to alert the audience to the urgency of the current natural environment protection work.

At the same time, the novel "Animal Laborers" creatively uses anthropomorphic techniques to quickly establish a "we are both unhappy — to the sky’s end" resonance with the audience through the concept of "migrant workers". On the one hand, it helps the audience to understand the positioning of various species in the ecological circle from the perspective of division of labor, on the other hand, it shortens the distance between the animal world and human society from the psychological level and improves the visibility of the content.

This documentary does not focus on a huge animal group, but focuses on a protagonist in a certain species or group, presenting the diverse lives of animal wage earners in a more concise lens language, which helps to enhance the audience’s sense of substitution.

"Animal wage earners" also gives animals distinctive human labels. The cute and whispering civet cats in the jungle, the musicians with magical cries, and the anti-involution gorillas … Each animal has its bright spots and memory points.

In order to highlight the liveliness and cuteness of animals, the music style of Animal Workers is more flexible, sometimes playful, sometimes quiet, and sometimes dangerous. The jumping music symbols are integrated with the personality characteristics of animals and the natural environment in which they live, bringing interesting and immersive viewing experience.

Easy-to-understand content, lively editing rhythm, humorous dubbing and fascinating soundtrack, Animal Workers is undoubtedly a well-made family fun work, which can not only resonate with contemporary young "migrant workers", but also attract elders at home to learn rich animal knowledge with their children. The Spring Festival holiday is approaching, so let’s make an appointment with friends and relatives to experience the charm of the documentary "Animal Workers"!
