Professor Fletcher’s invention of the CellScope, which is a cellphone with a microscope attachment, is a brillant device that help to saves lives. It was the inspiration for a teeny-tiny film created by Sumo Science at Aardman. It stars a 9mm tall girl called Dot as she struggles through a microscopic world.
The Cellscope technology was retrofitted to attach to a Nokia N8 cellphone with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics. There is no reason why it cannot also be easily retrofitted to attach to any cellphone camera.

If you haven’t seen Inception yet, do yourself a favor and go see it in IMAX, if possible. Not only is there an incredible cast of talented actors, but the whole movie is just put together superbly. This behind the scenes video shows snippets of how some of the actions were filmed and it’s just incredible how director Christopher Nolan pays so much attention to detail with lots of short 5 seconds or so clips. The movie was filmed in 6 different locations around the world.
Can’t wait for the sequel. There is a sequel, right?

What goes on behind a music video shoot? Take a peek at the Beyonce “Video Phone” shoot where Lady Gaga makes a guest appearance. It just looks [deceivingly?] incredibly relaxed and fun. All in a day’s work.
Why is it [seemingly always] a man teaching the moves?
Underwater photography has its unique challenges, including having the divers doing it again and again for a different angle shot. Here’s a behind the scenes video of how the 2010 MySpeedo Campaign was executed from idea initiation to the actual underwater shoot at Pinewood Studios Underwater Stage (where apparently James Bond and Harry Potter were shot) to post-processing with illustration.
See the finished video at: Speedo.
Time Lapse and High Speed Shooting are the two techniques the BBC Life team uses a lot of to create their award winning David Attenborough nature documentaries.
As you can see, some of the [time lapse] shots are in fact taken in the studio with a “blue screen” behind and then superimposed on the actual outdoors shot. A whole year in 60 seconds. Amazing!
