Background

Samsung Semiconductor is a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology. Semiconductors are ubiquitous and fundamental to all electronics. They appear in space and in our pocket - pretty much in every technology we experience and see.

However the impact of these semiconductors is invisible to most people as they have no real idea what they are or who might make them. So we decided to make a film to deliver the micro miracles brought to life through the invisible nanoscopic technology - semiconductors.

In order to do so, we focused on the features of semiconductors. Instead of going big to deliver the outstanding impact it has on us, we decided to bring the everyday aspects of our lives to the size so small that it can only be viewed under a microscope - to the size of the details of wafer thin semiconductors, just where it all started.

Execution

In this unique film, brought to life by techniques unprecedented in commercial filmmaking, we celebrate Samsung Semiconductors, the nanoscopic, unsung heroes of technological progress by featuring models so small, we can't see with our naked eye. “Micro Miracles” uses state-of-the-art 3D micro printing to depict technological applications of semiconductors. Models are designed using a 3D photogrammetry scanning system and fabricated through two photon nanolithography. Models are so small that their details are microscopic in size - a 50th of the width of human hair. The small details couldn’t be captured with traditional filming techniques. To capture them, we used a unique scanning electron microscope using electrons. To manage this in a cinematic style, we collaborated with microscopist Stefan Diller to use a system called nanoflight®, allowing microscopic worlds to be captured with dynamic camera moves.
