TIme-Lapse Photographers Band Together for Environmentally-Focused Feature

Publish date:

A group of 15 time-lapse photographers--Drew Geraci, Joe Capra, Sheldon Neil, Michael Shainblum, Henry Juh Wah Lee, Matt Givot, Andrew Walker, Eric Hines, Ben Canales, Brian Hawkins, Julie Hansard, Aaron Mendez, Chris Pritchard, Chaz Curry and Sean Parker--are banding together as CodeX in the hopes of funding a feature film called X-Plore.

The film's purpose will be to document some of the Earth's most endangered places and showcase the environmental shifts that are occuring via time-lapse. The group is currently raising funds on Indiegogo for the project.

As they explain, "There are thousands of places on our Earth that are so critically endangered they are at risk of being non-existent 10 years from now. Many are changing at a pace that is alarming from an environmental perspective but invisible to the naked eye. Our mission is simple: use our collective skills to document these changes to our world in order to preserve and bring attention to these wonderful environments. With a mind-blowing collection of time-lapse imagery and an inspiring story we hope to promote positive social awareness. We will show the massive environmental shifts that are all around us; time-lapse lets us bring them to you at human scale and focus on finding solutions."

A $25 contribution will get donors a digital download of the final movie. Watch the X-plore trailer below.
