There are always times when we wish that we could fast forward; waiting in lines, commercials on TV, or sitting in traffic. While we are still waiting to be able to skip over some boring parts of real life like Adam Sandler could in Click, we have a tool in filmmaking that already does it for video footage.
Time-lapses can turn days into minutes. There is a growing demand for these types of films and the fast paced business world is loving fast paced films. It is an effective and artistic technique used in famous title sequences, like House of Cards, for example.
One of our most recent corporate time-lapses was for the 250th Celebration of the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine. The event was held on the upper deck of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The time-lapse ran from Sunday to Saturday and caught every moment leading up to and during the event: from the construction, to the meal prep, to the fireworks at the end of the night.
"It's a lot of work that no one can really appreciate until the film is complete. From the crew on the ground, to our drone in the air and from our editor to our graphic designer, our team worked hard to pull this vision together for all of the vendors involved.", said Dave Williams, Partner at CinemaCake Filmmakers.
