Digging the new YouTube show Journey to the Microcosmos.
It’s incredible. A… celebration of observation.
Every choice the creators have made, from onscreen font selection, to Andrew Huang’s unobtrusive ambient music, to Hank Green’s subdued; though still enthusiastic; narration, allows the viewer to focus on James Weiss’ cinematography of the microcosmos.
And it’s Weiss’s cinematography, and the organisms it photographs, that are the real stars of the production.
My hurried notes and scratchy ink marks don’t do the series near the justice it deserves. Instead, you should go watch, and subscribe, so they can continue to make more.
