Marine animals

This is a short film created during the “Porgrave” shooting, the latest film by Sandro Bocci, that will be released in late 2015. …Meanwhile… shows the world of marine animals like corals and starfish at high magnification and during long time span through the timelapse. The music almost alien and disturbing has been joined to the images that stimulate mental associations to create a contrast, stimulate synesthesia and feelings do not necessarily harmonics and assonant.
This is an infinitesimal part of the wonderful world in which we live and of which we should take better care. A trip through a different perspective that would encourage reflection on the consequences of our actions on each scale of space and time.

Images and editing: Sandro Bocci
Original Music: Maurizio Morganti
Featured: Protoreaster linckii, Scolymia , Fungia, Trachyphyllia, Symphyllia, Euphyllia divisa wilde, Zoas mix, Alien eye zoas, Tridacna maxima.
A special thank’s to: Nicola Musacchio, Mario Fagioli, Julia Set Collection.

A nice film showing Venezuelan fish in their natural habitats. Featured species include Pterophyllum altum (altum angelfish), Moenkhausia pittieri (diamond tetra), Mikrogeophagus ramirezi (butterfly cichlid) and Panaque nigrolineatus (royal pleco).

It was promoted to full species rank by Weitzman et.al. in 2003. It is still much sought after and remains an expensive fish to buy. Continue Reading »
