To record the build process, for seven months we set up a time lapse camera in the back garden of one of our residential projects. It successfully shows the transformation from the original house to a contemporary family home. Photos were taken every 15 minutes during the day and then put together to make a movie of the process. To provide the short video we used more than 2,500 images.
It was a relatively straight forward process but occasional direct sunlight into the camera and condensation in certain conditions created a few issues. The battery ran out a couple of times so you can see the sudden jump in the movie - it wasn't the builder suddenly having a spurt of energy!
