Lapse of Reason from Evan Malcolm on Vimeo.

Byron Bay based photographer and documentary filmmaker Evan Malcolm’s short environmental documentary film ‘Lapse of Reason’ has received official selection and has gone on to become a Finalist in the ‘Documentary / Social Commentary’ category at The International Timelapse Festival to be held on August 13, 2016 at The Aero Theatre, Santa Monica, California. His unreleased film ‘Outlapsed’ also received official selection.

The captivating short environmental documentary, which was shown at the Byron Bay Film Festival in 2015, was selected by a world-class panel of judges renowned for their passion, creativity and leadership in the time-lapse art-form. The judges included Godfrey Reggio, Director of the 'Qatsi Trilogy': 'Koyaanisqatsi', ‘Powaqqatsi' and ‘Naqoyqatsi'.

'Lapse of Reason' will be screened at The Timelapse Festival Award Ceremony on August 13 to both industry peers and the general public. It's a significant career milestone for the Byron Bay-based documentary filmmaker to be acknowledged for his creative work at an international level.

“It is such a privilege to be recognised by some of my peers in time-lapse and documentary film-making, including Godfrey Reggio who directed ‘Koyaanisqatsi', probably the most important film in the evolution of time-lapse film-making” said Evan. “To be screened alongside the leading time-lapse film-makers in the world on an international stage is quite frankly, mind blowing”.

The audience for time-lapse films has grown worldwide and continues to be a passion for Evan’s current and planned projects.
