“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.” – John Muir
Forest of Tranquility is my 2nd personal experimental short documentary film, after the award winning timelapse documentary film “Keep Looking Up”.
The idea for this project was formed one year ago and during the preparation stage of this project, I was thinking on the filming approach and what the film should look like.
My thoughts were that we live in a fast paced world with infinite number of useful as well as not so useful information that the brain has to process daily, and as a result, it gets so easy to “disconnect” from nature, due to the routine of everyday life.
I decided to make things simpler, and just film moments inside nature where the pace remains the same from the beginning. To film sequences that showing the simplicity of nature and make the mind stop down for a moment.
Scenes like the flapping wings of a butterfly, a spider’s nest that dances with the wind or just a small ant that searches for food.
The days I spent inside the forests filming this project were truly amazing and inspiring, as also rejuvenating. It would be great if everyone could spent more time in nature.
