Construction Timelapse – Progress

Here’s a little insight into our work illustrating an ongoing construction project. We’ve been involved since the ground was broken and continue to run timelapse cameras to capture the entire build, with regular site visits, and ‘adventurous’ ladder climbs, the footage is building up nicely for what will be a exciting production come the end of the build. It’s the perfect project to add some aerial footage in to illustrate the progress along the way too… naturally an excuse to get airborne 🚁📸
