      Clemens Wirth & Radium Audio presents: Micro Empire ...moving on from Macro Kingdom, we pass through the portal of a microscope to venture into the Micro Empire ... surrounding us … inhabiting us … 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.” Credits: Video: Clemens Wirth (www.clemenswirth.com) Audio: Radium Audio (http://radium-audio.com/) Buy any frame from this video as a fine art print with Frame Factor: http://www.frame-factor.com/video/videov.php?vid=285415274

      • The Diatomist

        from Matthew Killip / Added

        THE DIATOMIST is a short documentary about Klaus Kemp, master of the Victorian art of diatom arrangement. Diatoms are single cell algae that create jewel-like glass shells around themselves. Microscopists of the Victorian era would arrange them into complex patterns, invisible to the naked eye but spectacular when viewed under magnification.The best of these arrangements are stunning technical feats that reveal the hidden grandeur of some of the smallest organisms on Earth. Klaus Kemp has devoted his entire life to understanding and perfecting diatom arrangement and he is now acknowledged as the last great practitioner of this beautiful combination of art and science. THE DIATOMIST showcases his incredible work. Soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Bernard Herrmann and Cults Percussion Ensemble. MATTHEW KILLIP is an English filmmaker living in New York. His documentaries have been broadcast on UK television and exhibited in festivals including Sundance and True/False.

              We don't need to dive into the deep ocean to find the most unusual lifeforms. This short clip is a journey into a bizarre world of microscopic inhabitants of pond water. You will see water fleas, bryozoans, water mites, mayfly nymphs, ostracods, and, of course, hydras. They jump, crawl, and float in a completely alien environment filled with mesmerizing algae and bushes of ciliates on stalks. This video uses image that I made through a biological microscope and macro lenses. I believe that macro work added more depth and allows seeing whole animals in a more natural environment. The average size of the animals filmed was less than 1 mm. Visit my website for more images: www.microworldsphotography.com Cameras used: Canon EOS 7D and Sony NEX-7. Microscope: Zeiss Axioscope A1. Macro lens: mp-e 65 mm. Plus many additional tools. Although I spent about a week of filming, it took more than a year of preparations, developing the skills, and learning how to find animals... especially in autumn. Would like to thank every friend who contributed to making this video!

                    Directed by Nico Casavecchia (twitter @nicocasavecchia) Production company: 1st Avenue Machine Agency: Ogilvy & Mather Animation studio: Punga.tv My name is Nico Casavecchia and I am a filmmaker. In November 2012, I received the most interesting commission of my career as a director. To work with a team of IBM scientists to create the smallest movie in film history. The idea was to use a "Scanning tunneling microscope", a tool that allows scientists to visualize and move individual atoms over a surface, to create a movie in stop motion. As soon as we started, the challenges began to come forward. The first challenge was to create a common language between the scientists and the artists. After long hours of research and conference calls we started to understand the tools in the lab and the process of Andreas Heinrich and his team of scientists in California. Through this, we were able to define the limitations of the project. We had to create a film using no more than 5000 movements of single atoms, which was a huge limitation for the character design. Every element in the animation had to be very economic, so when it moved, it used the least amount of operations by frame. The second challenge arose from learning that atoms cannot be aligned orthogonally like the pixels of a computer screen, they have to be organized hexagonally like the bricks on a wall. This defined the kind of characters that we could create, their movements and the kind of story we could tell. Once we knew the rules of the game we started thinking about stories that could be told within those boundaries. With Ogilvy & Mather New York, we arrived to the script of "A boy and his atom". The agency wanted a story that could be understood by any culture, without words, which could express emotions. Our objective was to tell something using such small amount of pixels and a single color. This led us to research 8bits video games from the 80s, that told amazing stories with such limited resources, like a space battle with only a small amount of pixels. The next step was to travel to Buenos Aires, where together with the production team of Punga, we designed the characters and the animation that the scientists used as reference. After that, I returned to New York where a programmer created a software that allowed us to translate the Punga created animation into a language that the scientist's computer could understand.  In San José, California, we met with the scientists right before starting the next phase of the process. During that week I worked with Andreas and his team organizing the finite details. When I came back to New York, the group of scientists began their work. For over a month, they made shifts to create the smallest stop motion film in the world. When that was finished we reconstructed the animation frame by frame without adding any post production details, using just the images created in the lab. The process of creating "A boy and his atom" was a collaboration of an incredible group of people. From the team in 1stAveMachine, the production company in charge of the movie, Punga, the Argentinian animation studio who did the animation, Ogilvy & Mather, the agency and especially Andreas Heinrich and his team in IBM.

                      My old short movie (don't take it seriously!) about microscopic life showing some of the freshwater microscopic fauna under high magnifications. That was the first online clip I made - hadn't had any prior video editing experience. Well, everyone has to start somewhere, so feel free to make fun out of it and especially the narration quality ) We are surrounded with various living creatures, but how often do we notice the tiniest ones and how small can they be? Such common but inconspicuous organisms like water fleas, seed shrimps, and hydras are less than a centimeter (0.4 inches) in size but they are very important components of the freshwater ecosystems. The vast majority of organisms are even smaller and they are completely invisible with naked eyes. Using sophisticated optic systems I am bringing even the smallest animals before your eyes; they can be magnificent and scary, fast-moving or hiding; most of them look nothing like animals we see every day… Attribution and credits appear at the end of the video Visit my blog post to learn more about the video development: http://notes-from-dreamworlds.blogspot.com/2011/11/microscopic-worlds-movie-and-how-it-was.html All photographs appearing in the movie can be viewed on my web site: http://microworldsphotography.com
