More reef life magic captured on film

By Leonard Ho - Posted Feb 10, 2015 09:00 AM
Italian filmmaker Sandro Bocci has produced an intoxicating five minute short film featuring aquarium reef life. His film "...meanwhile...." features clams, zoas, fungia, brain corals, and many more – all captured in eerie high def, high magnification time-lapse.

Reef life is really best appreciated with time enhanced videography.  We often see the movements of corals and other inverts as mindless.  Yet, when we are able to perceive time the way they do thanks to time-lapse photography, we can then understand the intricate purpose of their motion.

The video is haunting and beautiful.  The Scolymia feeding time-lapse at 2:54 is especially mesmerizing.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
