#ContentCatchUp: the story behind some incredible footage

Author: Ember Television | Posted on: 2 September 2021


For our #ContentCatchUp posts, we shine a light on some of the articles that have interested us the most – from the latest insights on content production and marketing, to those inspiring pieces that spark our creative imagination.

Our featured article this week takes a look behind-the-scenes of Louie Schwartzberg's incredible time lapse sequences, which show the development of different fungi over the course of 15 years and form the basis of his Netflix documentary Fantastic Fungi.




“I think the biggest surprise for people watching the film is that they think it’s all filmed outdoors,” he says. “There are a lot of reasons why you can’t film time lapses of plants and fungi outdoors. Number one: there is wind, which would make the object shake and rattle and look like a Charlie Chaplain movie. Number two: there are bugs and other elements that would interfere with filming.”
