Watching Liquid Move Like This Convinces Me That We're Not Alone

Video: I'm not exactly sure what I just watched but I saw liquid dance in ways I didn't know liquid could even move. At least, not on Earth. There's clever camera tricks and inventive techniques at work here (half the fun is guessing how it was filmed) and it all adds up to some mind warping shots that convince you of the existence of alien planets.

The water ballet was filmed by Kamiel Rongen. He insists that everything we're watching is real and hints that it was filmed in a fish bowl.

    Its upside down miss Jane.

    This is some of the worst writing I've seen here for a long time.

    One half-clever camera trick: take a camera underwater [or under the level in the fish bowl] and pint UP at the surface.
    Oh, and turn the camera upside-down.

    Usually done with swimmers, touching the "mirror" of the water surface.

    As sa_penguin said, under water camera. And paint.

    Bugger, I killed the mystery.

    That is cool. My fist impression is as said above, a camera upside down filming the surface of the water. As for the liquids, paint, oil, candle wax, coloured condensed milk, etc.
    The effects for The Fountain's galaxies were done like that IIRC.
