Featured Customer Projects

Metropolis Visual Uses Time Lapse to Capture History

Customer Tomas Jurjonas of Metropolis Visual shared this 18-month Chichester Free School construction time lapse footage with us. The project was a demolition of the now derelict Carmelite Convent in Chichester, UK in order for the building restoration/construction of the Chichester Free School. And we’re not sure what we love more: the beautiful footage or the story of how it came to be.
