“The Crown Of The Robey Chicago”: A Cinematic Poem Time-Lapse Short Film By Max Wilson (2016)

“The Crown Of The Robey Chicago” is a Cinematic Poem Time-Lapse Promotional Short Film Featuring Alan Watts Directed By Max Wilson.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Max Wilson


“The Robey Hotel in Chicago sits high above the famous six corners in Wicker Park/Buck Town neighborhoods. The Robey Hotel was recently renovated for the past few years and transformed from the old Northwest Tower into an amazing place to visit and stay. This was a focused piece upon the top of The Robey and the spectacular views.”


Excerpt from “What Is Reality?” by Alan Watts:

“It is that our attention is captured by the figure rather then the background and by the relatively enclosed area rather than the diffuse area and by something that’s moving rather than something that is still. To all the phenomena that attract our attention in this way, we attribute a higher degree of reality than we do the things we don’t notice.”
