Watch this 4K trailer for Tom Lowe’s Awaken on the largest screen you can:
This is the first time in my life where I’ve started crying from watching a trailer. The trailer itself is a beautiful work.
There are some insane, timelapse shots from the sky — shots that have never been attempted before. According to Engadget, this was done using “gimbal technology that allowed [Lowe] to shoot astrophotography scenes from a moving helicopter.” Incredible.
From the film’s website:
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 Godfrey Reggio, AWAKEN is a celebration of the spirit of life, an exploration of the Earth, and an ode to the Cosmos.
This looks like a gorgeous exploration of technology and humanity in the vein of Samsara. I can’t wait to see it.
