Tom Lowe shot to the forefront of the timelapse and movie world when he released his short “Learning to Fly” back on April 6th 2008, and planet5D was the first to show it to the HDSLR universe just two days later with our post (we like to think we helped launch its popularity).
Tom has been working on a feature length film for the past 2 years and this is the trailer for that new movie that we're excited to see soon. You can join us in supporting Tom by pre-ordering his movie on DVD, Bluray or Digital Download!
Tom's done an amazing job of combining the footage from the RED with the timelapses done with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II don't you think? I can't wait to see this on the big screen!
This is production footage from my forthcoming debut film, “TimeScapes,” a portrait of the American Southwest. This video was filmed and edited at 4K (4069×2304) resolution, four times greater than regular 1080p HD. A 4K DCP file is available upon request. Shot on Red Epic and Canon RAW still cameras.
If you have a 30″ monitor and fast computer you can download a 2560×1440 copy of this video here: timescapesfiles.com/TimeScapes4K2560p.zip 4K version only if you have a 4K monitor or projector: coming soon
Thank you to Terrence Malick and Godfrey Reggio for their support and inspiration. Also thanks to Eric Kessler, Curt Morgan, Jim Jannard, Vincent Laforet, Bruce Allen, Phil Plait, Dave Finley, and to Helio Collective for the beautiful title logo. My most sincere and humble respect to Mark Magidson and Ron Fricke.
