All of these shots are distinguished because of their technical accuracy and carefully-chosen perspective.

Customers will profit from Framepool's highly advanced infrastructure and the comprehensive service portfolio, including perceptive research and rights clearance. The online collection makes BlackLight Films' content available in no time at all. Clients from all around the film business can now make use of it for their own projects in a very uncomplicated way – be it in regard to TV or cinema, advertising or corporate communication.
"I've spent my life capturing beautiful images. And whether in wilderness or in the downtown of a giant city, I find connections, universal rhythms, patterns and beauty that I recognize as a part of me, a part of all of us that celebrates life. It's my great pleasure to share with a bigger audience that energy which inspires me; this great visual beauty of our world" – this is how Louis Schwartzberg explains the philosophy behind his works.
"BlackLight Films is dedicated to brilliant thematic settings and leading technical formats. We are really proud to have this exceptional, unique material on board, as it perfectly fits into our high-grade HD and film collection", says Dr. Stephan Bleek, CEO at Framepool. "When I first got to know Louis and had the chance to look at his work, I was purely slack-jawed. The richness of colours and details is really admirable. And I am sure our customers will be equally inspired in discovering the world with the eyes of Louis Schwartzberg."
In 1997 Louis Schwartzberg founded BlackLight Films to use the power of media to inspire and entertain through television programming, DVD products, and full-length motion picture and IMAX films. BlackLight Films produces HiDef, and large format features, high-end TV commercials, TV programming, and DVD titles.
