Why you should listen
Louie Schwartzberg's career spans feature films, television shows, commercials and documentaries. His film Wings of Life, narrated by Meryl Streep, was released by Disneynature in April 2013, and his most recent film, Mysteries of the Unseen World, is a National Geographic 3D Imax that journeys into invisible worlds that are too slow, too fast, too small and too vast for the human eye to see.
Schwartzberg founded Moving Art to use the power of media to inspire and entertain through television programming, DVD products, and full-length motion picture and Imax films. His art is about breaking barriers, connecting with audiences, and telling stories that celebrate life and reveal the mysteries and wisdom of nature, people and places. Several of his film shorts have gone viral, including “Gratitude” and “Beauty of Pollination” with 36MM+ web views, and spawned related media (books, webinars, and more). Custom Ultra HD Moving Art pieces created by Schwartzberg can also be found in high-end hospitality venues around the world starting in 2014.
For Schwartzberg, the greatest satisfaction is creating works that can have a positive effect on the future of the planet. “I hope my films inspire and open people’s hearts. Beauty is nature’s tool for survival – you protect what you love. If I can move enough people on an emotional level, I hope we can achieve the shift in consciousness we need to sustain and celebrate life.”
