 Time-Lapse Video Production

With Time-lapse videos, processes that would normally be very subtle can come alive using this process. Equally if you have a process that takes a long time to complete, a standard video might be considered a dull way to show this process. Utilising this technique can make almost anything seem graceful and interesting. It can actually show the whole process in its entirety rather than the snippets captured using more traditional filming techniques. It is also a great way to highlight important business messages that have large scale parameters.

Time-lapse traditionally is a continuous process with a fixed camera, which obviously has its place. Vivid on the other hand, where possible, prefer to use multiple camera angles. This has the added advantage of allowing the camera point to move to different sections of the process at key times. Often within a given process there are certain sub-sections that can happen very quickly. Fixed camera set-ups programmed at longer time intervals may miss these. Where applicable, Vivid will also film HD footage of these sections and speed them up in the edit, to give the same look and feel to the rest of the time-lapse.

We have used the time-lapse technique for many different scenarios, including; aircraft repaints, construction, demolition, event build-ups, nature documentaries and street scenes for both company and agency footage.
