A whirlwind drive across Canada from sea to sea.
9 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"Tran Scan" uses a new technique of telescopic, travelling time-lapse cinematography (albeit cinematography without a movie camera!) to traverse the entire continent from Pacific to Atlantic on the Trans Canada Highway in eight exhilarating, non-stop minutes. Photographed from the point of view of the traveller and fixed on the landscape ahead, the film takes you on a kaleidoscopic joyride unlike anything you've experienced before. "Tran Scan" is breathtaking in its originality, a 21st century "Railrodder" in cosmic zoom! Fasten your seat belt and treat yourself to the experience. And if you're Canadian, look for familiar landmarks along the way.
