In early 2014, Louie Schwartzberg gave a TEDTalk in which he asked: What is at the intersection of technology, art, and science? The answer: It is our curiosity and wonder, which drives us to be explorers of the world.
Schwartzberg is a director, producer and cinematographer best known for being a pioneer in high-end time-lapse cinematography. For three decades, he has provided breathtaking imagery for feature films, television shows, documentaries and commercials. As a visual artist, he is known for breaking barriers, telling stories that celebrate life and reveal the mysteries and wisdom of nature, people, and places.
Louie Schwartzberg first came to my attention with his award-winning Wings of Life, a feature-length documentary narrated by Meryl Streep. (You can find it here on Netflix.) It is rich, gorgeous, mesmerising.
Here is an invitation to a mere 7 minutes of Louie Schwartzberg's TED Talk, including scenes from his 3-D IMAX film, Mysteries of The Unseen World. Prepare to be thrown into awe and swept away.
