Video short film "Slow Life" by Daniel Stoupin (ocean-macro slow-motion time-lapse photography-videography)

Watch "Slow Life", slow marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. This 3:38 minute film is actually 150,000 macro photography shots, with original shallow depth of field extended using focus stacking. Each frame of the video is actually a stack of 3-12 individual shots, with in-focus areas are digitally merged.

Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives.
