Julia Set Lab produces particular documentary footages of the varied shapes in nature, crystals, flora and fauna and  alien looking creatures.

Through different shooting techniques such as high magnification field (indoor/outdoor), timelapse, slomotion and underwater shooting, we try to show what is normally not visible to the human eye because of the spatial or temporal dimensions.

Among the latest collaborations for this section is to provide additional footages for the film Song to Song by Terrence Malick and for the TV-Series One Strange Rock by Darren Aronofsky.


R'lyeh  - Short - 2018

The nightmare corpse-city of R’lyeh…was built in measureless eons behind history by the vast, loathsome shapes that seeped down from the dark stars. There lay great Cthulhu and his hordes, hidden in green slimy vaults.

”Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn. In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.
— H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu


Meanwhile in a world far, far away ... This short film shows the world of marine animals like corals and starfish at high magnification and during long time span through the timelapse. The music almost alien and disturbing has been joined to the images that stimulate mental associations to create a contrast, stimulate synesthesia and feelings do not necessarily harmonics and assonant. This is an infinitesimal part of the wonderful world in which we live and of which we should take better care. A trip through a different perspective that would encourage reflection on the consequences of our actions on each scale of space and time. Enjoy the vision...
