Creating Waves of Awareness
Dr Wequar shares this slow motion time lapse nature video photography with us. An excerpt from the Louie Schwartzberg TED Talk.
Louie Schwartzberg, award-winning cinematographer, director, and producer whose notable career spans more than three decades provides us with breathtaking imagery for feature films, television shows, documentaries and commercials. As a visual artist, Louie has created some of the most iconic and memorable film moments of our time.
Incredibly, he has been shooting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week continuously for more than 30 years and was recognized as one of the top 70 cinematographers for the On Film Kodak Salute Series. A member of the Directors Guild of America and the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, Louie has been credited by many with pioneering the contemporary stock footage industry by founding Energy Film Library, a global company with a network of 12 foreign offices, which was acquired by Getty Images in 1997.
Motion picture clients of his cinematic artistry include Sex in the City, The Bourne Ultimatum, Die Hard 4, Syriana, Crash, Men in Black, American Beauty, Koyaanisqatsi and ET, among others. Louie founded BlackLight Films, a creative production company specializing in producing original theatrical feature, large format films, HD and TV programming. In 2004, BlackLight Films completed production of the theatrical feature film, America's Heart & Soul. We hope this film inspires and delights the soul.
