Setting new standards: Breathtaking...in 4K
Tom was pioneering several new techniques, and helping design motorized time-lapse dollies and motion-control systems.
Tom Lowe produced the most amazing timelapse video ever. Recorded on Canon DSLRs and on the Red Epic, the material for TimeScapes was captured in 5K and then later on edited to 4K. This is truely rasing the bar in the industry. New standards. Amazing job. Tom slept outdoors for 250 nights, sleeping on cots (without tents) under the stars next to his camera, while timelapse was being captured. During the middle of principle photography on “TimeScapes”, Lowe won the Astronomy Photographer of the year award in 2011, with the above image, 'Blazing Bristlecone' - featuring a 4,000-year-old bristlecone pine tree against the Milky Way. Unbeknownst to the judges, the photo was actually just one frame of a time-lapse movie, which is featured in “TimeScapes”, the movie.
