Glyndebourne overnight set-change stage time lapse video.


This is a short time lapse video I shot for Glyndebourne to promote their forthcoming national tour.

Running at under 90 seconds, it shows the overnight process of stage crew changing the production sets. So you can see them dismantling the set from Mozart’s La Finta Gardiniere and building the set for Verdi’s La Traviata.

Everything was shot on one camera (Canon 5D MkIII and 50mm lens) running Magic Lantern software. The software’s intervalometer was set to take one image every 8 seconds for 6 hours. The resulting 2700 images were edited and rendered into the sequence you see here. Music (from La Traviata) and end titles were then added in-house by Glyndebourne’s own digital team.

This was the first ever time lapse sequence I’ve shot (the client did know this by the way!). I think it came out pretty good.
