This video is a visualization of Akashiwo Sanguinea swim paths. This visualization is a result of using stereo recordings to create point cloud data. This data set is then passed through Excel to shape scripts given to Maya a 3D software. A bit more work needs to be done to articulate the rotation as the "bugs" travel along their paths.
I believe the critters are moving at actual speed.
