Micro Empire: A Fascinating Look at an Invisible World [Video]


----------------

Stranger than fiction… molecular conflict and mitochondrial warfare … a heartstopping, subcellular epic … a truly microcinematic experience …

“as an enthusiast for little things, I wanted to go deeper than the macro universe, so I found myself hanging on the eyepiece of a microscope. The real challenge was definitely the small depth of field in microscopy. It’s really fascinating how detailed this tiny world is, and unbelievable how much is going on in only one little water drop.”

  1. Why the ridiculous (and annoying) erratic quick-cuts and feature-film soundtrack? I understand the filmmaker is probably a product of the post-MTV generation…but does he/she really think intelligent human beings need window dressing to draw them in to an already fascinating micro-look at reality?

    • Really? You're going to pick on someone for getting people interested in science? I don't care how they do it as long as they do it.

      Why don't you go outside and yell at some kids to get off your lawn?

  2. E Cheung. Doesn't the creator site this as art, and an expression of creativity rather than as a verbatim look at Micro Biology. POST MTV generation .. is a bit harsh comment and also "Why the ridiculous (and annoying) erratic quick-cuts and feature-film soundtrack" is also harsh for what is essentially an art piece.

    if you want science.. then may I suggest Science Weekly Video Feed.
    please reel back on the negative for what is essentially a beautiful and exciting film.

  3. I was just annoyed by ONE thing
    "molecular conflict and mitochondrial warfare … a heartstopping, subcellular epic"
    Not really so.
    Those aren't "subcellular" nor "molecular", definitely much much bigger.

    The guy can film, the guy made a pretty good short, but the guy needs some data about what he's filming ;)
