Do we really know what lurks in the deep? A new short film showcases some of the most breathtaking -- and bizarre -- creatures that live just beneath the waves.
The short was shot by Italian filmmaker Sandro Bocci during part of a larger project that will be released later this year. Titled "…meanwhile..," Bocci turns his lens on the mysteries below, including some baffling corals brought to life using time-lapse cinematography.
"This is an infinitesimal part of the wonderful world in which we live and of which we should take better care," Bocci wrote in a description of the project. It's "a trip through a different perspective that would encourage reflection on the consequences of our actions on each scale of space and time."
Take a look at the video above, and check out some stunning moments that are well worth saving from the short below.
