Frozen Worlds – A Fascinating Look at Frost Bubbles

This is a fascinating look at the world of frost bubbles! Of course, I'd never heard of them before today LOL.

And this fits my style – I like movies that move slowly and don't flip from image to image every 1/10 of a second.

Of course, the music selection is also important to every film and this is no exception. And as I've said before it is one of the hardest things to do if you ask me. Tho in this case, because of the sphere, it was an easy choice?

So, what do you think? Cool or too slow?

Frozen Worlds is a short film exploring the macro world of frost bubbles. Filming frost patterns as they engulf soap bubbles was one of the most fascinating encounters I have ever witnessed with the natural world. They take on a life of their own and just like snowflakes no two are alike.

While looking at the back of my camera and watching these frozen orbs form, they looked like distant worlds. The Planets by Gustav Holst has always been one of my favorite classical pieces and immediately came to mind for the soundtrack.

(All clips were filmed with the Sony A7RII and the Sigma 90mm f/2.8 macro lens in 4k, then cropped to 1080p.)
