News A Year in the Life of the Royal Albert Hall – Complete

1 January 2014 Kate

We have now completed a time-lapse project for the Royal Albert Hall, which documents ‘A Year in the Life’ of this incredible venue.

This project helps to showcase why we are amongst the world leaders in long period time-lapse film production.

We work extensively for the construction industries to produce the very best quality in time-lapse and site monitoring, but we also work on many other creative projects, which help display the vast range of work we undertake and the versatility of our abilities and our unique working methods.

A Year in the Life of the Royal Albert Hall was one of our biggest challenges to date. We are accustomed to operating our camera systems around the clock, continuously for years on end, and in all manner of situations and conditions. However, what made this project most challenging was the huge number of events we had to capture, all of which were different, all of which occurred under various lighting conditions and all of which we had to do justice to.

Not only is the Royal Albert Hall the world’s most prestigious venue, but it also plays host to many of the world’s most prestigious artists and events. In total we captured all 390 of these in the year, from the Royal Variety Performance, Cirque du Soleil, Swan Lake, Eric Clapton, Masters Tennis ….. and many more….through to the Proms Season, which culminated in ‘The Last Night of the Proms’.

We were delighted that the Royal Albert Hall chose to entrust this job to us, and we are pleased that they have been so happy with the end results. The completed time-lapse sequence has currently received well over 60,000 YouTube hits in just a couple of weeks, and the Royal Albert Hall sent out the sequence as part of their e-Christmas card.

Jessica Silvester, Senior Marketing and Press Manager at the Royal Albert Hall states:

The Royal Albert Hall was delighted with its time-lapse, showing ‘a year in the life’ of the world’s most famous stage during a record year. The project was challenging with many different show set-ups and vast differences in lighting, but Time-Lapse-Systems did an excellent job, precisely micro-managing the photography of events and paying great attention to detail on the editing to ensure that the final product showcased the quality and variety of the 390 events that took place in the main auditorium which attracted over 1.7million visitors.
