Dance Under The Sea

This short is a Silent Documentary Music Short Film, that collects a series of suggestive videos recorded by me in the Mediterranean Sea and exactly in the shallow and deep waters of Salento (Puglia) in Southern Italy, between the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea. The protagonists are the typical fish of the Mediterranean, from Diplodus Sargus to Mugil Cephalus, from Sarpa Salpa to Solea Solea or Scorpaena Scrofa. But to these we must add new arrivals for these waters, which climate change has certainly favored and I am referring in particular to the colorful and tropical origin, Thalassoma Pavo and the Sphyraena Barracuda with their unmistakable torpedo shape. In short, almost a mixture of races also for this fantastic environment. The particularity of the "SONORA" music kindly granted for use in this video, directly from the brazilian composer Quincas Moreira, who has seen it personally (CC License), creates a winning combination in the message I wanted to convey and which recalls a famous aphorism of an equally famous character such as Albert Einstein of which I quote in the credits. A real dance at the bottom of the sea that began with the call of an "invisible Pied Piper".
