Video for Zakynthos awarded at the LA independent film festival
“Treasures of Zakynthos” won Best Time-lapse at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival and was selected as a Vimeo Staff Pick.
Polish cinematographer Maciej Tomków’s “Treasures of Zakynthos” is a beautiful, award-winning time-lapse that highlights the titled Greek island. Going far beyond only filming for the final project, Tomków also took the time and care to create incredibly well-done behind-the-scenes videos that give a true sense of what production is like shooting epic time-lapses.
Tomków describes the island of Zakynthos as “a must-see for everybody who loves to travel and seeks for an adventure”.
He set out to prove this description days after first staying on the island working on another project. “I didn’t plan to make my own independent film from the beginning,” said Tomków in the behind-the-scenes video above, but once he discovered that no one else had attempted time-lapse photography spanning Zakythos, he knew he needed to make “Treasures of Zakynthos.”
Tomków created time-lapses of his time-lapsing and they are just as amazing as the final film. Maciej specializes in shooting timelapse and motion controlled timelapse of nature, cityscapes and landscapes.
