CamDo blog favorite, David Trood, is at it again. We’ve seen some very interesting videos from him in the past with the construction of the world's largest ethane gas carrier and the construction of the Experiementarium museum last year. This time, Trood captures a construction time lapse of the Metallica stage at the Royal Arena arena in Copenhagen, Denmark. The video currently has nearly one million views on Metallica’s Facebook page!
Trood used four GoPro HERO4 cameras with Blink controllers and external batteries. Blink was scheduled to have the cameras shoot an image every five minutes for the three days it took to set up the stage.
For Trood, it was a very simple set-up. It only took a few minutes to work out the set-up required for the project and where to place the cameras. And the time to set them up in the arena and start them. In fact, he set up the cameras, went on vacation for a week and then took the cameras down and gave the files to another team who did the edit. Who said impressive time lapse projects have to be ultra complex?!
When you hear "reef restoration", you likely tend to think about coral reefs and other underwater habitats in places like Australia or in South America, but the fact is that there are reefs of all different kinds (not just coral) throughout the world's oceans that are monitored, restored, and protected.
CamDo customer, Dr. Jon Svendsen with the Danish National Institute of Aquatic Resources, is part of one of these reef restoration projects, and recently shared the underwater time lapse footage from his team's current Marine Habitat Restoration project.
There are a few things synonymous with the town of Tofino, on Canada’s West Coast, including but certainly not limited to: surf culture, the rugged coastline, rain, refreshing, cold waters, Shelter Restaurant, Tacofino, Hot Springs, fishing and we bet that the newly opened Shed Restaurant becomes one, too!
The construction time lapse footage of Shed Restaurant featured in this blog was captured over 5 months using our purpose-built ShootX time lapse camera and CloudX Pro for remote monitoring of the construction site.
