    www.neelscastillon.com A mesmering murmuration of starlings. We were shooting for a commercial, waiting for an helicopter flying into the sunset, when thousands and thousands of birds came and made this incredible dance in the sky. It was amazing, we just forgot our job and started this little piece of poetry... Enjoy ! Directed by Neels CASTILLON Shot by Mathias Touzeris Produced by Masterfilms. Music: Hand-made - Alt J

      The peak of a conspiracy is the coincidence. Nature decides to get rid of the humans but the dolphins conceive a survival plan for them, a Planetic Exodus. The human kind becomes a nomadic mushroom-like organism. They follow the stage of initiation to the collective memory, a farewell party, and the mystery of the communion of a last supper where humans and animals gain their common conscience. At last, the journey follows. Finally, they uncover the Dolphin Conspiracy: There is no goal for the silent movement of populations since Eden was never found. Everyone is part of the march of the chosen of life. They follow the eternal procession of big Friday. After Hibernation and Forever After, The Dolphin Conspiracy completes Lydia Venieri’s trilogy. The first two parts were shown in Greece, Paris, and New York.

        Hermit Crab Migration This morning I received an urgent telephone call from my good friend Pam Gaffin. She was terribly excited about an event that was happening before her eyes. Pam told me it was a migration of soldier crabs also called hermit crabs and there were millions and millions of them she likened it to the migrations of Serengeti. I didn't need to hear anymore, I loaded my car with cameras and was out the door. Pam told me that this began this morning at sunrise at Nanny point near Concordia. I have heard about this migration for years and knew that it occurred in August, I can't tell you how happy I am that Pam called. Pam you're my hero.

          झलक [jhalak] Life. Thrown into a chaotic mess, moments pass by and you grow up. People come and go. Opportunities pass - there will be more. Hope. Understanding. God. Is it really what you think it is? Before you know its over again. And all you got is a glimpse. Jhalak was shot in Bombay, Delhi, Bundi, Ranakpur, Jaipur and Jodhpur. Shot with Magic Lantern RAW and stabilized with the Freefly MōVI M10.

                    The Salton Sea and surrounding agricultural land are an important element in the Winter migration of many migratory birds like Snow Geese, White Pelicans, Sandhill Cranes, and many different species of gulls, shorebirds and waterfowl. Every winter the area fills with hundreds of thousands of birds, that depend on the Salton Sea for food from the Talapia (fish) as well as crops raised by the local farmers to help feed the birds, in a cooperative effort to maintain a balanced ecosystem. It was fun to get up early and shoot video of the birds in their natural habitat. Sometimes, I just like to watch, while the camera is sitting on a tripod. :-) Sony A77 Sony 70-300mm G lens Music by Tom Fahy (Creative Commons license from www.vimeo.com/musicstore)

                      The annual wildebeest migration takes place in the Masai Mara, Kenya and the Serengeti, Tanzania. It is known as the “Great Migration” and is one of the most iconic events in Africa. One of the largest obstacles the migrating animals face is the mighty Mara River. Through a combination of telephoto video clips and wide-angle time-lapse sequences, we aim to illustrate the scale and drama of this incredible spectacle. We have never before seen a wildebeest river crossing recorded in this way... as far as we know, this could be the first time that time-lapse has been used to reveal the dynamics of a wildebeest river crossing.
