The Olympic flame

The Olympic flame

7th August 2012

The original site of the Olympic games in Greece was also home to a spectacular Doric temple devoted to the God Zeus. The games were created to celebrate Zeus, and the Olympic flame that burns throughout the games represents the fire that Prometheus stole from him, an unintended gift to man. Today the Olympics is an […]

Olympic Vermin

2nd August 2012

This is a great animation called ‘Olympic Vermin’. Here we see some of London’s vermin recreating the Olympic torch relay through the streets of London. It’s a very fun, cheeky take on what is essentially a massive part of the Olympic ceremony. Created by Amael Isnard and Leo Bridle, and produced by Beakus.
