Daniel Stoupin has created an incredible macro video of rarely seen marine life such as coral reefs, sponges and various other forms of marine life. Using over 150,000 still photographs Stoupin created this remarkable video. Some still shots below.
He says of his project:
“Time lapse cinematography reveals a whole different world full of hypnotic motion and my idea was to make coral reef life more spectacular and thus closer to our awareness. I had a bigger picture in my mind for my clip. But after many months of processing hundreds of thousands of photos and trying to capture various elements of coral and sponge behavior I realized that I have to take it one step at a time. For now, the clip just focuses on beauty of microscopic reef “landscapes.” The close-up patterns and colors of this type of fauna hardly resemble anything from the terrestrial environments. Corals become even less familiar if you consider their daily “activities.””
