Construction time lapse is a strong tool for documenting a build, recording progress, updating stakeholders, and marketing your services. Last year, we featured an article highlighting five common long term time lapse mistakes to avoid. But that list certainly was not an exhaustive one. Here are five more time lapse mistakes to avoid, specifically on construction time lapse projects.
Matthew C. Grammer recently shared a video he created for his client, Republic Property Group, a Texas based real estate developer which manages a few communities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The company was working on Walsh, a budding development west of Fort Worth. Grammer was tasked with producing videos to showcase the initial stages of the community.

One strength of time lapse photography is its ability to show large, complicated processes in a way our brains can comprehend. It allows us to understand scale. As a music lover, I’ve always found stage construction time lapses interesting. I’ve found myself sitting at shows in large stadiums looking at enormous, intricate stages and productions wondering just what goes into bringing this to life. The German industrial metal band, Rammstein, gives us a peek behind the curtain with a time lapse video highlighting the entire process.
CamDo customer Albert Sanfeliu recently shared footage of a recent 7-month project that he completed through his company, Pandora Box TV. The video shows the rehabilitation of an industrial warehouse for loading, unloading, and storage of products that arrive via sea transport. The ship was badly damaged, both internally and externally, so steel masts had to be placed outside for the first five months in order to have a high point of the space.
Simply put, a time lapse interval should be set in relation to the speed of the action of what you’re capturing. It determines the length of the final video and to a certain extent, the speed of your final video. And while it’s a fairly simple concept to grasp, it can be a bit tricky to execute, as there are a lot of variables to take into account.
Our customers tend to runlong term time lapse projectswith average durations of 6-12 months (or longer!). If you’re one of these people, you’ll likely experience the joys of dealing with the cold weather that accompanies winter months… and all of the challenges that come along with it. Here are the five things to consider when capturing time lapse footage during the cold winter months.

In the midst of another very active fire season, fires have been progressing rapidly due to high winds, an abundance of fuel (dead branches and leaves), and non-existent precipitation. And time lapse videos of some of the fires are popping up all over the web showing this progress.
