I have always been fascinated by timelapse photography and some of the night sky stuff is absolutely stunning.  I follow the work of artists like Tom Lowe (TimeScapes and Awaken) and Randy Halverson of Dakotalapse.  I get goosebumps every time I watch this stuff.  Enjoy.

 

 

Here’s some 8K resolution material that Dakotalapse has recently assembled.

And here is a link to some of Randy Halverson's trailers of short timelapse films.  Amazing work.

For those that have not seen Tom Lowe’s TimeScapes, here are two nice trailers.

Tom Lowe’s new production, Awaken, is due to be released later in 2018.  It employs some motion timelapse techniques that have never been used before now.  I’m looking forward to seeing Awaken.  Watch the trailer.

First time I recall seeing anything of this sort, was 1982's Koyaanisqatsi. At that time, nothing like it had ever been done before, and experiencing it in an "art film" theater with an excellent sound system, was mind blowing.

 

The Timescapes trailers were enough to make me order the Blu-ray... and now, like you, I'm looking forward to the release of Awaken.

 

Thanks for the post!

I'm almost embarrassed to say that I have watched my TimeScapes Blu-ray at least 50 times over the last six years.  I find it very relaxing and quite useful for relieving stress.  I also listen to the soundtrack.

 

Here is a portion of TimeScapes from the website of soundtrack composer Nigel Stanford.  He also has some cool music videos including Automatica and 100 Hunters.  Enjoy.
