Behind the Scenes: What Goes into a Time-Lapse Video Production?


The Right Equipment: Investing in a time-lapse video production starts with choosing a good camera and reliable database storage. Because a building progress is linear, you cannot turn back time to capture a missed shot if the equipment is faulty or image resolution is low quality. Capture Point Media offers a secure online cloud storage database where images can be easily accessed by your team for the duration of the project. This allows your team to monitor the site remotely to evaluate the project’s progress and other security or OH&S issues that might be of concern. We also use state-of-the-art digital DSLR cameras to capture every shot, and we will produce 1080HD – 4k videos for you that you can easily share with your stakeholders and customers.


Understanding Photography Principles: Positioning is key. Your camera becomes a silent spectator, perched for the perfect view. A seasoned photographer will take into account the framing of the shot, any potential issues with glares or blocked views, and offer you some sound solutions. Whilst anyone can video a time-lapse, Capture Point Media’s main priority is focusing the lens on your project, and removing other distracting elements that would take away from telling your story. We also have the necessary credentials and insurances in navigating a construction site, so you don’t have to worry about it.


Production Magic: Once your frames are captured, the editing phase commences. Here, the mundane becomes the magical. Handpicked frames are woven into a captivating tapestry. Royalty free music and post-production dramatisation are added, turning moments into magic. We will also include graphic animation of your project logo, so you can easily share the final product on social media.
