Editorial Reviews

Reminiscent of extreme IMAX films, Tran Scan is a road-trip experience never before captured on camera. A film without words.

CINEMATOGRAPHY: Tran Scan uses a new technique of telescopic, traveling time-lapse, from the point of view of the traveler, fixed on the landscape ahead. We traverse the Trans-Canada Highway in a continuous, seamless "flight" from Pacific to Atlantic in 8 minutes non-stop. A breakthrough in "virtual cinematography" allows us to travel at 5,700 km/h (3,500 mph) in a smoothly viewable fashion never before attained. The land becomes alive.
- "Reveals nothing short of a new way of seeing." - The Blinding Light!

GEOGRAPHY: Don't look for momentary signposts; go with the flow and you'll be left with a sense of the whole continent as if you had driven it yourself.

TECHNICAL NOTE: No motion picture camera of any kind was used in the making of this film. Frame-by-frame "re-animation" took 18 months at a cost of $100,000. The soundtrack was painstakingly constructed from scratch with sound effects that are synchronized with the movements. Most people think it's a real-time film.
