Endless Gravity: Amazing Video Spectacular of Jellyfish Fairy Dance

If you wanted proof you don't have to go to space to find other beautiful worlds, then Alex Soloviev has captured a magnificent slow-motion visual spectacular of jellyfish that are gorgeous and hypnotizing.

“You can watch these ocean creatures endlessly. It's like a live cosmos, unbelievable smooth moves, eternity and meditation,” Alex Soloviev says in the description to his 5-minute clip.

The film features mostly slow-motion shots of bio-luminescent jellyfish gliding through the sea’s dark waters. 

“When I saw them for the first time, I instantly got an idea for the film. These creatures really look and move like something not of our world,” Soloviev said.

Amazingly enough, the clip was taken in a European aquarium, not on the seafloor. 

“I had to find angles and lighting to dismiss the aquarium look, which was the hardest part. It took a lot of work and time to make it look like it was shot in a real ocean rather than in an aquarium,” he said. 

All the artist needed to shoot this extraordinary footage was his camera. Soloviev says no image-altering VFX was used for the final cut. 

“Of course I made hard color grade to push the colors, blacks and slowed in post some of the shots to make it look more like a space motion,” Soloviev said. 

Jellyfish are found in every ocean from the surface to the deep waters and they sometimes live in freshwater. The creatures have been on this planet for at least 500 million years and not only are they among the oldest multi-organ animals on earth; the are also among the most beautiful.
