If you have not already, be sure to read part one of our 2016 round-up blog, covering lots of the work we have completed this year.
Having covered new staff, new websites and new clients in part one, 2016 has been a year of firsts in many other ways – including some extraordinary commissions.
Opening its doors to the public next year, The Postal Museum will see purpose-built trains carry passengers through the underground rail networks in central London for the first time in its 100-year history.
We were there to capture the delivery of their custom-built trains which will comprise part of the Mail Rail experience.
We also used a dual camera set-up to document the construction of a temporary cinema venue at Victoria Embankment Gardens. Capturing both the interior and exterior elements of the build, our editors worked tirelessly to strict timescales in order to turn over a complete edit in time for both the grand opening and use by the national media.
Receiving over 14,000 views on Facebook alone, our finished time-lapse edit for the BFI created quite a buzz among cinemagoers and film lovers online. And national attention for our time-lapse work did not stop there.
From social media to ‘media media’, our footage of the 500-year-old Mary Rose warship was picked up by public broadcasters, the BBC.
Providing remote time-lapse and site monitoring of the sensitive improvement works at the Mary Rose Museum at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, we were honoured to have been chosen to document history in the making.
Among a very select few who have been allowed access to Henry VIII’s flagship since it was raised from the Solent in 1982, our team of specialist engineers were extremely careful to deliver optimum results without compromising the delicate nature of this unique working environment.
Social media stats
As we reported in our most recent statistics synopsis, our online impact continues to grow, with increasing video views, social media hits and more.
In addition to one of our most popular time-lapse sequences racking up over 90,000 views on YouTube alone, along with multiple edits for Legoland achieving over 100,000 hits each, there have been several other notable online engagements from our clients and the wider public.
As already mentioned, our Friday Feature has been very well received, especially by our clients whose memorable projects we have revisited.

More recently, our new camera and viewer at 125 Deansgate received a special mention from our clients on Twitter, and our work at the M56 Thorley Lane bridge replacement (in association with our colleagues at Aerial Images) was featured in a detailed write-up in Construction News.

It is always a pleasure to work with our clients and receive such good feedback on all the projects mentioned in this two-part blog, plus the many, many others we have not had the chance to mention (or cannot mention!)
Thank you for taking your time to read through our 2016 round-up and we are always on-hand to help with any time-lapse, site monitoring or video questions & enquiries you might have. From all of us here at Time-Lapse Systems, have a very happy new year!
