Southwest Light Poster

Tom Lowe, creator of Timescapes, has announced a new film: Southwest Light

The film will be a mixture of timelapse, slow-motion, and real-time footage.  Tom will travel the American Southwest (California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona & New Mexico) for ten straight months, no stopping.

Tom says: "My goal is to create a portrait of “a time and a place” using poetic, haunting, jaw-dropping visuals.  The genre of the film will be similar to non-narrative masterpieces Baraka and Koyaanisqatsi."

Tom has received financial backing and plans to start shooting in Feb 2010.

Cormac Scanlan’s movie Hylozoism is a ‘Holistic Documentary’ which, whilst offering no answers, uses associational form to encourage its audience to ponder life's big questions. Alluding to topics as varied as psychology, philosophy, anthropology, urbanity and evolutionary biology, the film invites viewers to think about who we are and where we came from. Hylozoism asks questions about how are we connected to each other and our planet, ponders about where are we headed as species and examines our purpose as both an individual and a part in a larger society and history.

Loosely influenced by the artistic ideas of Guy Ernest Debord and the Situationist International movement, much of the film was made using the psychogeographical practice of dérive. Cormac Scanlan's form of psychogeography focuses on exploring urban and rural environments and using video and stills photography to reflect the emotions experienced at a location in the way it is artistically portrayed, as well as capturing the physical presence of the location itself.

Hylozoism was made over a period of 7 months between 2005 and 2006. All photography is original footage of a documentative nature (ie there was no setting up of scenarios, interfering with the subject, or altering the mise en scène) and all photography and video editing was done by Cormac Scanlan himself. The film features an original soundtrack, recorded specifically for the film, this was composed, performed and produced by Cormac Scanlan and Curtis Redden.
