The Deeper You Go
Consciousness is the basis of our reality. Without it we understand nothing about the world and ourselves. Once the domain of religion, the study of human consciousness has exploded in the last decades, making headway in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, philosophy and other disciplines.
In The Deeper You Go, Milwaukee documentary filmmakers Lora Nigro and Kevin Rutkowski, reunited with Los Angeles cinematographer Vincent Gaudes, interviewed keynote speakers at a conference sponsored by the University of Arizona’s Center for Consciousness Studies.
Shooting guerilla style with only an HD Camcorder and hand held boom they snared the “rock stars of consciousness” as they exited the stage amidst the rival camera crews and mob of fans. By that definition, Deepak Chopra is the superstar, however, the line up includes known luminaries TED talkers Susan Blackmore, David Chalmers, Dan Dennett, Stuart Hameroff and John Searle.
Banned from filming inside the conference area, team milwaukee set up camp in the hotel courtyard but managed to seize the hotel’s wedding table display closet for the makeshift indoor shots.
Their eight minute preview on YouTube captures the crux of the ensuing debate in quick counterpoint edits, suggesting that the sharpest minds in the field don’t agree much on the nature of mind.
Subsequent interviews include NY Times best selling author Eben Alexander, Proof of Heaven and controversial biologist Rupert Sheldrake. The list of notables is expanding for The Deeper You Go’s targeted 2015 release.
The film’s featured soundtrack single, “Consciousness” became available webwide on September 12, 2014. Nigro and Rutkowski’s background as recording artists, whose lyrical explorations probed the depths of reality, provides a context for their interest in the subject.
