About Us

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”

~ Dalai Lama XIV

Direct Experiences Films synergizes healing sights and sounds to bring you to a place of peace and serenity to allow you to go with the flow, to let go, to go slow.

We hope that watching our films bring you back to you and allow you to release tension, stress and anxiety and live in the joy of your true self.

Healing Power of Nature

Being in nature is healing. It calms, soothes and centers us. Understanding that not everyone can get outdoors, Direct Experiences Films brings the beauty of nature to you. Our locations include Costa Rica, Yosemite and Aspen with another film shoot coming soon.

Nature Art

Our films feature nature art by Stone Balance Artist Michael Grab and Sand Artist Andreas Markus Hoenigschmid.

Healing Power of Music

The soundtrack version of each film contains both original music written with the memory of the location in mind, body and spirit, as well as sounds from the natural environment that were recorded while on location.

Guided Meditations

Each of our films will also have a guided meditation version. Reverend Michael Beckwith, Founder and Spiritual Director of the Agape International Spiritual Center, will do our first narrative. He is a frequent guest on Oprah and a featured teacher in the film, The Secret.

Technology

All our high quality films are shot in slow-motion photography using vivid 4K technology for both land and aerial footage.

Our cinematographer, Daniel Kelly Brown, shoots extremely high-resolution video primary on his Red Dragon and Time Lapse on complex 3-axis motion controlled camera robots.  His innovative motion control time-lapse photography and super high definition video work allows viewers to rediscover nature and humanity, by shifting time in dramatic and beautiful ways, that forever alter the viewer’s perspective, and allows us to experience the impossible.
