Friday Feature – Stornoway

Our Friday Feature series takes a closer look at some of the videos that you can view on our YouTube and Vimeo channels.

FMP – Nicolson Institute school construction in Stornoway

We began the Friday Feature instalment on our blog as a means of spotlighting some of our past time-lapse and video projects that form part of our incredibly varied portfolio.

So for our final blog post of 2016 (and as people across the country prepare to see out the old and bring in the new), we have dug deep into our archives to bring you one of our oldest – and perhaps snowiest – time-lapse edits from Stornoway, the largest town in the Outer Hebrides.

Stornoway is also the birthplace of Mary Anne MacLeod Trump, mother of the United States’ President-elect Donald Trump!

This two-year build marked the first time our work took us up to Scotland. We covered the construction of one of the flagship Western Isles Schools projects.

Despite the challenging weather conditions that are commonplace in the country, our camera system managed to capture faultlessly for the entire duration. Hit with all manner of weather – sleet, snow, rain (and, at times, a little sun) – our system’s robust hardware and remote monitoring capabilities ensured that we delivered around 28,000 high definition images.

The rapid capture time-lapse is further enhanced by subtle digital moves along the length of the construction site, resulting in an exciting and timeless edit.

Our work has since taken us all over the country and further afield but even today – over six years since we installed there – Stornoway remains one of our favourite locations.
