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?!
