Chessington job looks stunning!

We have de-rigged the time-lapse camera system at Chessington World of Adventure and are beginning to assemble the edit, which looks stunning! The camera was set to get some great lighting effects – and with our normally high capture rate – we have some great images which we are now working to edit together, using our own unique editing system, which processes images through four editing stages to get the absolute best possible results.

We timelapse the construction of a huge Marquee

Over two days we supplied a fully ‘manned’ time-lapse camera system to capture the construction of a marquee at Chessington World of Adventures in Surrey.

Since then, we have set up an unmanned time lapse camera system inside the marquee to capture the construction of lighting and staging, a concert, and the eventual de-rigging. We use our highly adaptive scaffolding system both to get the camera in the most advantageous position and to provide it with a very stable and safe operating platform.
