1. A slow media, multi-frame treatment of a sunset at this beautiful lake 90 mins north of Montreal. Shot in July, 2011.
    The master (which is the opening shot) is used for more than12 mins in this 31:07 film, and all the inserts are at least 1:20. The transition at 24:28 if very much like a painting. Sound track courtesy of the birds, frogs, bugs, and beaver at 26:35 and the subsequent waves from it's dive at 27:00 .
    But try not to rush through this.
    It is SLOW MEDIA.

  2. A slow media, multi-frame treatment of a sunrise at this beautiful lake 90 mins north of Montreal. Shot in July, 2011. The master (which is the opening shot) is used for more than14 mins in this 33:03 film, and all the inserts are at least 1:20. My experience on this morning was that the lake, the water, was offering itself to the sky, and the sky was accepting the offering in the form of the steam that rose from the lake. It was a ceremony that I witnessed.
    Try not to rush through this.
    It is SLOW MEDIA.

  3. A slow media, multi-frame treatment of a mature, purple iris in our backyard in high summer on the southern BC coast. Shot in July 2011. The master (which is the opening shot) is used for more than12 mins in this 41:40 film, and all the inserts are at least 1:20. The orange poppy that is peeking through at 3:42 is featured later in the CU insert at 30:35. I love the wind component in this sequence, but there are times when everything in the frame is completely still too.
    Try not to rush through this.
    It is SLOW MEDIA.

  4. A slow media, single frame treatment of this yellow iris in my neighbour's garden here in North Van. Shot in July 2010. While the look is fairly static to begin, the ants, the bees, and the wind and changing light, due to the moving clouds, create lots of dynamic. This is still one of my faves, especially on a larger monitor!
    But try not to rush through this. The camera has a lot more patience than we do.
    It is SLOW MEDIA.

  5. A slow media, single frame treatment of the stem of this foxglove in my neighbour's garden here in North Van. Shot in July 2010, it runs for 20.01. I've found that the vertical aspect of the frame is a key in the success of most slow media shots. I really like the depth in this shot. And the ants!
    The camera has a lot more patience than we do.
    It is SLOW MEDIA.

We are a group of practitioners and supporters of SLOW MEDIA.
Our primary purpose is to develop the public’s awareness and appreciation of SLOW MEDIA, and to explore how media affects society. We will be serving these aims through research, public education, content creation and distribution, as well as financial assistance for selected practitioners.
We feel that there is substantial power in cinema that is simple in composition and presented in real time. Our initial concentration is on long form images of the earth, and the life and culture of the earth. Our technical parameters will be detailed later this month. Please check back with us.
We are presenting SLOW MEDIA as an alternative to the compressed timelines and accelerated concept delivery of much of the media that is currently being produced and consumed.
SLOW MEDIA is real time window on the world. What does your world look like?
The Slow Media Foundation us a duly registered society in the province of British Columbia, Canada.
It is our goal to further the following purposes:
To assist film makers by providing scholarships, bursaries, and prizes for scholastic achievement in the areas of slow media and filmmaking.
To improve and promote the public’s appreciation of the media and it’s effect on society.
To undertake research in slow media and share the Foundation’s results with the public.
To install video screens that feature “slow media” content to generate public awareness and appreciation for the foregoing purposes.
