Here is a completed Time-Lapse production shot almost exactly a year ago. Not a building going up this time but an old Victorian bridge coming down and a new sleek cycle and pedestrian bridge being installed in it’s place. It was shot over two days, separated by about 3 weeks. On the first day we used a two camera setup and had three cameras running for the second day. Obviously, 90% of the time is spent erecting and dismantling cranes but it is quite fun anyway and the cheesy music eases it along nicely!
I took a train to Nottingham last week and had a few minutes in the station waiting for it to come in. Having just had it’s first birthday the John MacAslan structure is looking good and well worth a few pics while waiting.
It was built by the French company Vinci and was engineered by Arups.
