Lightscapes is an episodic, half-hour experiential television series airing on Discovery HD Theater that captures famous buildings and landscapes around the world as they are transformed by stunning, large-scale lighting displays.
Captured in stunning 4K HD with both real-time and time-lapse cinematography, the unique Lightscapes visuals are accompanied by an instrumental soundtrack, drawing inspiration from the highly acclaimed feature film Baraka and the HD Theater television series, Sunrise Earth.
The first episode was filmed at Japan’s most sacred Shinto site, The Grand Ise Shrine, on November 3rd, as part of re-dedication ceremonies for Uji Bridge (rebuilt in 20 years cycles, starting 1,300 years ago), which coincided with “Bunka no hi”, the holiday that celebrates Culture & the Arts.
Subsequent episodes are being filmed at various locations in Europe, America, and throughout Asia.
LIGHTSCAPES premieres on Discovery HD Theater June 21 at 7:30 AM ET following a half-hour edition of Sunrise Earth, with a repeat at 10:30AM ET.
