Video: Soap bubbles & ferrofluid

When he’s not designing interfaces at Adobe, Kim Pimmel makes short films:

I combined everyday soap bubbles with exotic ferrofluid liquid to create an eerie tale, using macro lenses and time lapse techniques. Black ferrofluid and dye race through bubble structures, drawn through by the invisible forces of capillary action and magnetism.

    How good can a film showing a few bubbles in close up be? Very good it seems.
    A great example of editing teling the story.
