Weaver Time-Lapse Video Is Featured on Japanese TVShare
People like seeing how things are made, and that was the spirit behind our idea to create a time-lapse video of one of our custom home builds from start to finish. When we created our video in 2011, we thought it would be a great way to share some of the aspects of home building that most people don’t get to see.
We were pretty excited when the Nippon Television Network in Japan contacted us for permission to feature our video on their station. The video will air May 15 on a program called “Sekai Banzuke,” a popular prime-time show that features topics from around the world, in an episode focused on time lapse and stop-motion videos.
How We Made the Video
To create the video, we set up several cameras in the construction site to capture one photo every 30 seconds. Over the next six months, the cameras captured more than 70,000 photos, providing views of the project from several vantage points. We edited the images in Adobe Lightroom 3, combined them in Quicktime Pro at 30 frames/second and compiled the video in iMovie 11. Most of the clips were sped up by 2-4 times to produce the final 7-minute movie.
Enjoy the Film!
We’re excited to know that our work will be featured on national television in Japan! Enjoy the video and see what goes into a Weaver Construction build.
