“The ocean floor is the most mysterious place on our planet,” says filmmaker Alex Soloviev of Endless Gravity // 14-BIT RAW, his ultra-HD montage of bottom-dwelling sea creatures. On first glance, the film seems more fiction than science—full of slow-motion shots of jellyfish gliding through the dark water in accented halos of their own bioluminescence. As the filmmaker proudly states, however, the final cut is free of any image-altering VFX. Instead, Soloviev relied solely upon the power of Magic Lantern firmware, showcasing "magical nature" in unembellished 14-bit RAWness. Below, a few of Soloviev's favorite moments from his film.
