I've posted teasers on this before but now I have a good connection I can upload the whole film.

Filmed over the course of a year it gives an insight into the migration and light seeking behavior of the Golden Jellyfish that live in this incredible environment.

Enjoy!

Well done.  A lot of video in a short production, makes you want more.  By the way, what music did you use? Very relaxing.

Hi all, thanks for the compliments, very glad to see them.

Doing this has been a goal for a long time and it's been, I have to say, a real struggle to get it done.

It's such a cool subject and environment, I know what you mean Joe. Short and sweet is good, I want to do more myself. Plenty of shots waiting to be got.

Who knows maybe I'll get another opportunity...

The music is a combination of Music beds from Soundtrack that seemed to fit nicely.

For all the wild and sensational productions out there, the scale, pace and fragility of this subject was a huge contrasting draw to me, not to mention that doing something different nowadays with a modest budget is increasingly difficult. (actually I still spent a small fortune)
But I just had to do it!

 

So I'm very glad it's being well received!

 

Thanks to John Friday for his words of encouragement.

 

 

Cheers

 

Richard
