“One of the most remarkable qualities of time-lapse photography is that it enables a view of things which our eyes cannot naturally see.” We explore this advantage of time-lapse.

Join us once again in our annual round-up, which looks back at some of the many exciting developments and projects we have captured in 2018.
Our time-lapse work has taken us to major UK cities such as London, Birmingham, Manchester and Newcastle, where we continue to work extensively. Having now worked with major brands and contractors such as Merlin Entertainments (Alton Towers, Legoland etc.), HS2, BAM, European Championships, Berkeley Group and Crossrail, we are the leading UK time-lapse provider.
Following the public release of our long-term, rapid interval time-lapse video of Wicker Man’s construction, our work also featured on Channel 4’s ‘Inside Alton Towers’ documentary, tracking the inside story of the roller coaster construction.
This week’s “Time-Lapse Trends” explores the subject of roller coasters in varying forms. We even feature some of our own work capturing some iconic rides at the Alton Towers Resort.
Although we capture across the UK and beyond, there is no region with a more varied collection of time-lapse work than the West Midlands – from major rail and infrastructure projects to car manufacturing plants and pop concerts.
The time-lapse of our latest project for Merlin Entertainments has recently been shown on the BBC.
We supplied Blue Peter with clips that featured several times as part of their show on 16th May.
Over the last 9 months one of our HD time-lapse camera systems has been at the Alton Towers Resort, where we have been capturing the construction of the theme park’s record breaking new attraction ‘The Smiler’…
We have finished the 12 month long time-lapse construction of the brand new rollercoaster, called ‘Th13teen’ at the Alton Towers Resort in Staffordshire… Out time-lapse camera system had been placed in a highly exposed position, high on a specially designed post in the Staffordshire Moorlands. It faced extremes of temperatures and weather conditions throughout the 12 months of construction, but performed without major problems for the entire duration. We have now edited the complete movie sequence of the entire construction for our clients.
We are 6 months into our time-lapse of the building of Alton Towers’ and Merlin Entertainment’s newest rollercoaster…. The camera system has performed brilliantly and the HD images it is capturing are providing an amazing step by step record of the build, which our clients are able to view via their coded access to our servers.
We set up and install a time-lapse system on special bespoke post to capture the entire build of Alton Towers’ new rollercoaster… The project is expected to run for 12 months until March 2010 and will cover every stage of the building process, from the groundworks to the finished theming of this newest Rollercoaster for the Merlin Entertainments Group. As ever, the latest images the camera captures, will be viewable to our clients and their stake holders via coded access to our servers.
