Wow. That's all I can say about the videography. One of the most remarkable shots for me was a super high speed shot of a hummingbird sucking nectar from a flower. It's wings were beating in very slow motion, yet the camera was doing a simultaneous dolly move sideways.

Also very impressive for me was the underwater shot of the "Jesus lizzard" as it ran on water, and over the camera.

Absolutely beautiful photography!

Some of the slomo was Phantom HD and some Photron. The bulk of the series was tape Varicam.
