This is an excerpt from Leonardo DiCaprio’s full-length documentary “Beyond the Flood”. I had the opportunity to watch this documentary during the weekend with my family and I am blown away because it is the perfect combination between still pictures, video and motion graphics. I decided to put up only the 15 minutes of the documentary that shows how by just a minimal increase in temperature the whole balance in weather patterns will be broken. Also when we are able to see the vision of the thin blue atmosphere from above it really gives you a different perspective.
The motion graphics I refer to occur when the scientist is showing changing weather patterns on a digital wall map, and it shows a simulation of how some parts of the world will become dry, and others will freeze. This is an amazing visual that is very effective in communicating what the consequences of an increase in ocean temperature might be.
