Every creative is always looking for inspiration to improve their creative skills and create something uniquely their own. Inspiration can come from a variety of sources. Last night I was looking for something to watch on a nice Saturday night with my wife. I was not in the mood to watch any mindless television show, crazy reality show, and most of all some depressing news. As I searched through Netflix I came across an interesting documentary called "Moving Art". I thought that sounds interesting, and it was. It was not only interesting it was entertaining and very inspiring. I wanted to share what I thought of the documentary.
Moving Art was created by director Louie Schwartzberg and the documentary originally aired in 2014. He and his talented cinematographer, Alex Falk, Howard Hall, and Dereck Joubert created amazing and beautiful videos and still-photo images of nature, landscapes, and wildlife. The documentary highlights the beauty of the oceans, forests, deserts, and flowers. Each segment is very well done and very inspiring. I was blown away by the time-lapse video, drone footage, and the still-photos from the documentary. Some of the time-lapse footage of flowers blooming was some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. I was blown away by how much time it probably took to shoot the time-lapse flower footage.
For me, the documentary was very inspiring. It made me want to capture images of landscapes, nature, and wildlife. It has inspired me to incorporate more video footage for future projects. I am currently working to improve my video skills which I understand will take some time and a lot of practice to get proficient at shooting and editing video content. In the future, I will incorporate my own drone footage. The documentary drone footage was very beautiful.
I really enjoy photography. I am beginning to enjoy shooting video. Videography will be fun for me. It gives me an opportunity to create new content and be more creative. The documentary, "Moving Art", can be very inspiring and be very entertaining for anyone who is creative. I do want to warn you that the images are very beautiful and the documentary is not narrated. Instead, there is beautiful and relaxing music for each video. Most likely, you will catch yourself falling asleep. Not by boredom, but from the relaxing and peaceful feeling, you get by viewing and listening to the content.
I highly recommend the "Moving Art" documentary for anyone who is a creative person. Whether you are a photographer, videographer, artist, painters, writer, blogger, musician, or any other type of creative, you will be inspired. Segments of the documentary are available on Youtube. You can binge watch all the segments on Netflix. Go check it out. You will be glad you did.
Until next time, keep shooting!
