Director, Cinematographer, Editor, Producer - AWAKEN is director Tom Lowe’s first feature film. His previous short film “Timescapes” attracted a passionate following, support from companies like Canon and Adobe, and was financially successful within weeks of its release.
During production of “Timescapes” in September 2010, Lowe was awarded as 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 military during the Gulf War. In 2007, he founded Timescapes.org, the first and largest public-discussion forum dedicated to timelapse. Tom was instrumental 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 with companies like Kessler Crane, CamBLOCK, and Mark Roberts Motion Control. Lowe is co-founder of a Dubai-based artificial intelligence company.
