Time Lapse in Southwark, London

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!

Time-Lapse in Middlesex

It has been a busy few months as is witnessed by the dirth of postings here!

I’ve just finished installing a long-term time-lapse set up on a construction site in Middlesex for those pillars of the civil engineering world: Conway.  Time Lapses are slightly curious things that can make even the mundane buildings interesting,  I guess seeing the passage of time (in the case many months) compressed into a minute or two kind of compresses the fascination too.

I’ve developed a PV powered system for this project that will, I hope circumvent the temperature and battery drain issues I’ve experienced in the past, particularly through the winter months.  Short duration projects don’t have this issue but battery drain plagues long term set ups like this one.

So here is how it looks this month:
