    So. Has anyone watched it? I just watched it with a few corona's and my pants are now messy. The best timelapse I have ever seen. Bought the blue ray copy, and last night Tom Lowe revealed that since we bought it, we shouldn't have to wait to see it, so sent us all a code to download the 1080p version :)

    Incase you are living under a rock, here is the trailer

    Gonna get the 2k version soon. 4k would be ultimate. Wish a cinema or imax would show it :(

    little over 6 gigs... I'm seeing an average of about 16kbps.

    EDIT: Just to add, the 1080p download is about half the size.

    Glad I was able to bring this to your attention. I'm going to watch it over and over. Something nice to have just running in the background. And an awesome soundtrack too!

    Just watched this, what amazing footage! Personal nits of mine: got a little tired of rotating milky way shots, and some of the 3-axis moves combined with the swirling sky made me a bit nauseous. Really enjoyed the epic build midway through.

    I was dubious going in whether the film could hold attention for almost an hour but am happy to say i didnt get bored. Best on a big screen, lights out and sound up. A must see if you have any interest in nature photography or cinematography.

    Yep, saw it on the couch in front of the big plasma - 1080p download, sorry to disappoint! As far as I know there was a one-off premiere in the US. Tom Lowe said he'd be interested in getting it into imax, but I don't know if it's actually in the pipeline as of yet.

    No where. Tom Lowe is seeking interest from people to see if they'd like to see this happen though. Maybe in USA, doubt it in Aus
