“Medieval Monsters” is a short documentary by Oliver Mueller that combines macro, slow-motion, and time-lapse footage to highlight the world of the insect monsters in the New Forest in southern England.
The New Forest of England is an ancient world full of medieval monsters – dueling dragonflies, acid-firing ants and jousting stag beetles. Macro, slow-motion and time-lapse techniques were combined with custom-built equipment to reveal these astonishing lives.
This film is the result of 30 days shooting on location during the summer of 2015, plus months of research, planning and post-production. It was shot on a Sony FS700 and Canon 7D.
