cinematographer louie schwartzberg created a series of short films titled moving art - from forests to deserts to oceans. each focused, richly colored portrait of the landscapes of america are like little meditation sessions.
each piece is presented without commentary. bask in the serene landscapes while enjoying the gorgeous and sometimes haunting instrumentals that play along with the sweeping pans of the spectacular country we live in.
each film is the pinnacle of a sensory experience. it feels like you (or... the flowers/mountains/rivers/everything under his lens) is soaring, growing, exploring, climbing, caressing and breathing.
if you are an artist, or if you simply appreciate stunning visual beauty, i highly recommend looking up louie schwartzberg and watching these short films. at 25 minutes a piece, you can watch some rich inspirational material in the amount of time it takes to watch a sitcom on tv.
Louie Schwartzberg has spent his career mastering the art of filmmaking in his quest to uncover the mysteries of the living universe, the secrets of nature, and the heart of the human soul.
Louie is unique among filmmakers with his focus on capturing the rhythms of the universe; rhythms that convey the energy and connectedness in everything. His imagery triggers deep emotional response in audiences, because it is a reflection of the patterns inside their own bodies, inside every one of their cells. Tapping into those rhythms turns people on to the beauty that surrounds us.
As the only cinematographer in the world who has been shooting time-lapse 24/7 continuously for well over three decades, Louie is a visual artist breaking barriers, connecting with audiences, and telling stories that celebrate life and reveal the mysteries and wisdom of nature, people and places.
