Sculpture and Louie Schwartzberg

Time for some beauty.

Louie Schwartzberg is a fimmaker. I love how his work has both opened his eyes and his heart.
He has both the latest technology and the patience of stone.

The images of the bats at night are amazing. While you watch this film, think about how Schwartzberg had to understand both space and time to position the camera to catch the animals, the plants and the moon. (All moving constantly.)

Cactus flowers only last one night so the set up had to change depending on what might occur.  In order to capture all this, remind yourself of all the filming that didn't work, the set up was off, the animals went to a different flower. Schwartzberg's work a dance of planning and improvisation
