Time Lapse Photography can be used in a number of markets such as the promotion of a holiday destination, a building project or manufacturing process. Hours, days, or even months can be shown in a video only one or two minutes long, which is ideal for use on the web.
The first phase is to capture the footage, and that may involve a single camera for days or a few months, or on a complex day shoot it could mean up to four or five cameras utilising different views and angles.
The second phase is to convert all the footage and bring it together in post processing, usually Adobe After Effects, where the project can come alive and can have specific elements highlighted. Background tracks and company logos can be added for the final version.

Commercial time lapse photography is unique in giving an audience a view of a developing project that could be over hours, days or even weeks, in a short, easily viewable video. Video times can be anything required for the usage and audience, but could be 10 seconds, 1-2 minutes or longer.
Time Lapse Sells
Video is often to long to watch on the web, and expensive to produce an entire film edited to show aspects of construction, building, processes etc. Very effective when done well, but time lapse is a very different medium, and can be captivating to watch. Your audience can see a building grow before their eyes, showing all the techniques used to piece it together, along with the way you work on site.
