Experimental, stoner-postcard film ‘Quiet Place in the Universe’ by American photographer/filmmaker, Tyler Ludowitz. Shot entirely on super 8, the work documents his travels from The States and through Asia, through a gorgeous and at times unsettling cinematic experience.
QUIET PLACE IN THE UNIVERSE
Shot and Directed by Tyler Ludowitz, edited by John Appletone. After a summer working in a fish factory and sleeping in a car in Homer Alaska, traveler and filmmaker Tyler Ludowitz took a one way flight to India with nothing but a backpack, a super 8 camera and as little as two hours worth of film. Working with limited celluloid, Ludowitz had to be exceedingly selective with what he shot, sometimes going weeks without rolling the shutter. Quiet Place in the Universe documents his travels as he made his way through Thailand, China, and eventually back to the United States. The film he returned with is intensely brutal, wholly raw, and at times unexpectedly beautiful. Quiet Place sets itself apart by invoking a cinematic experience that is truly D.I.Y. to the fullest extreme. Quiet Place premiered on December 11th, 2012 at Spectacle Theater, Brooklyn New York.
Tyler Ludowitz is a filmmaker, photographer and world traveler originally from California. He has made two feature films, a five part web series and a music video for the band Yowie. After traveling 40 countries over the span of 8 years he decided to settle down in Thailand. When he isn’t teaching English he is exploring and shooting film around Bangkok and going to noise/experimental shows at Jam Café.
