Here at markthree media, we love watching films nearly as much as we love making them. This little gem caught our eye this week, so we thought we’d share it with you. Keep an eye on the blog to see more of our favourite discoveries from around the web soon.

TimeScapes is a project that filmmaker Tom Lowe has been working on with numerous partners for the last few years, developing systems and technology to help him achieve his vision of startling images of things we rarely appreciate.

The live-action elements and slow-motion were shot with a Red Epic camera, with the timelapse sequences (the beautiful night skies you see in the trailer) shot on a Canon stills camera.

Here’s the trailer for the film. To get the best out of it, make sure HD is turned on and, if you can, watch it on a BIG monitor. Inspiring stuff.
