Ne face plăcere să vă delectăm cu fiecare postare selecționată de noi, indiferent de subiectul abordat (natural, urban, flowmotion, hyperlapse etc). Și apoi, când crezi că le-ai văzut pe toate, apare câte un greu al domeniului, și-ți bulversează metafizicul vizual, materializând concepte vizuale greu perceptibile și… huh? (nici noi nu știm ce-am vrut să spunem aici, exact…). Dar un lucru este cert. Tom Lowe, de la care am mai văzut timelapse demn de podium mondial, n-a stat degeaba în ultimii ani, și se pregătește să ne încânte cu un nou film. De data asta, un documentar, în adevăratul sens al cuvântului, al cărui trailer proaspăt lansat, ne-a șocat retina. Vizionare plăcută!
“AWAKEN is a feature documentary film exploring humanity’s relationship with technology and with the natural world.
Shot over a 5-year period in more than 30 countries, the film pioneers new time-lapse, time-dilation, underwater, and aerial cinematography techniques to give audiences new eyes with which to see our world. Executive produced by Terrence Malick and Godrey Reggio, AWAKEN is a celebration of the spirit of life, an exploration of the Earth, and an ode to the Cosmos.
Director, Cinematographer, Editor, Producer – AWAKEN is director Tom Lowe’s first feature film. His previous short film “Timescapes” attracted a passionate following, support from companies like Canon and Adobe, and was financially successful within weeks of its release.
During production of “Timescapes” in September 2010, Lowe was awarded as Astronomy Photographer of the Year by the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. He has since served as second-unit director for mentors Terrence Malick (VOYAGE OF TIME) and Godfrey Reggio (VISITORS).
From Orange County, California, Lowe served in combat with the US military during the Gulf War, followed by a brief career in politics as a strategist and speechwriter, and a writer-producer at the public-affairs television roundtable “The McLaughlin Group.”
In 2007, Lowe founded Timescapes.org, the first and largest public-discussion forum dedicated to sharing information about the craft of timelapse. Tom was instrumental in the resurgence of timelapse during its 2008-2011 digital renaissance. He pioneered several new timelapse techniques and helped design a next generation of motorized timelapse dollies and motion-control systems with companies like CamBLOCK, Mark Roberts Motion Control, and Kessler Crane. Lowe is co-founder of a Dubai-based artificial intelligence company.
