Dry Out

Life needs water. But this fluid tends to evaporate over time into a gaseous state.
Drying out is a chemical process that takes hours, days or even weeks.
Without enough water the organisms metabolism is stopping.

Using high resolution cameras with macro-lenses or the microscope, i timelapsed more than hundred sequences of various organic motives which were drying out.

The visual aesthetics and drama of these transformations captivated me.
That’s why I searched for the best scenes and moments to create this Shortfilm.
