We have recently won the contract to make a very special time-lapse film that will document an entire year in the life of the Royal Albert Hall.
In addition to the many construction projects we cover for the UK’s major contractors, we also carry out many other creative projects; and this project is an excellent example.
With a venue as prestigious as the Royal Albert Hall, we have to take care to capture images of the very best quality, using the best equipment for the job. But the main challenge with this project comes from the fact that the lighting conditions at the Hall are constantly changing. It is a working venue that operates 24/7, setting up and hosting all manner of shows and performances. We therefore have to set up control methods which continually monitor the camera remotely and change the camera settings to best fit the ever changing nature of the environment.
The end results wont be seen for a year. But once all the images have been captured, a quite remarkable film will be made which will show the entire year in the life of the famous venue.
Jessica Silvester, Marketing, Digital and Press Manager at the Royal Albert Hall, explains:
We wanted to capture a high-quality review of a year in the life of the Royal Albert Hall showing the huge range of shows that take place on one of the world’s most famous stages – from large-scale education events to performances by the world’s greatest artists. As a charity which delivers extensive public benefit, we are always keen to find more ways for people who aren’t able to visit the Hall in person to find out more about and enjoy our work. Hideaway Time-Lapse Systems offered a quality and personal service with competitive pricing and we are looking forward to viewing the full results next year.
