Want to see some jaw-dropping camera work? Check out this 3-minute trailer for the upcoming feature film Awaken, by renowned time-lapse photographer Tom Lowe. It’s a documentary that explores humanities relationship with both nature and technology.
Lowe shot the photos and footage over 5 years across 30 different countries. During that time, he flexed his creative muscles to pioneer “new time-lapse, time-dilation, underwater, and aerial cinematography techniques to give audiences new eyes with which to see our world.”
In other words, Lowe has broken new ground with his techniques, and at least one renowned photographer and filmmaker has been blown away by the work.
“Stunning,” says Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Vincent Laforet. “Minds will be blown. I saw stuff that’s never been done before.”
Awaken is “a celebration of the spirit of life, an exploration of the Earth, and an ode to the Cosmos,” and it is set to be released sometime in 2018. You can follow along with the project and sign up for alerts on its website. You can also find more of Lowe’s amazing work in our archives and on his TimeScapes website.
