The team at Beauty of Science see the world a little differently to most of us. While we’re far too busy looking with our eyes, they’re seeing through microscopes and macro lenses. So many things happen on the small scale that we simply can’t see. Things we’d never even know about unless we went specifically looking for them, or somebody showed us to them.
And showing them to us is exactly where Beauty of Science excel. To round off their 2016 they’ve released the short film, Seasons – In a Small World. It shows incredible beauty found in the extremely small. Sights we’d not otherwise be able to see, and as the name suggests, it covers the four seasons found throughout the year. The colours, pace, timing, and action goes extremely well, set to the Strauss’ The Blue Danube.
It’s an intriguingly beautiful video. While it seems quite obvious as to what some of the shots are, others look completely alien. They do provide some hints in the description, though.
As a new year is coming, we assembled our team to craft an end-of-year video that would capture viewers’ imagination. We came up with an idea to use the perspective of a microscope/macro-lens to present the four seasons in our human world.
All editing materials are from the previous microscope/macro footages and some unused shots, including footage from color paint experiments and those of chemical reactions.
So, perhaps if you have a browse around their Vimeo channel, you’ll be able to figure out what the not-so-obvious ones are.
Which was your favourite season shown in the film? Which of them did you recognise straight away? And how many shots had you scratching your heads? Let us know in the comments
