Director, Producer, Cinematographer, Editor - AWAKEN is director Tom Lowe’s first feature film. His short film “Timescapes” attracted a passionate following and support from companies like Canon, Adobe and Google.
During production of “Timescapes” in September 2010, Lowe was named Astronomy Photographer of the Year by the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. He has since served as second-unit director for mentors Terrence Malick (VOYAGE OF TIME) and Godfrey Reggio (VISITORS).
From Orange County, California, Lowe served in combat with the US Army. In 2007, he founded Timescapes.org, a public-discussion forum dedicated to timelapse. Tom was involved in the resurgence of timelapse during its 2008-2011 digital renaissance. He pioneered several new timelapse techniques and helped design a next generation of motion-control systems. Lowe is co-founder of Awaken Studios.
