2012 in Pictures – Chadchud Timelapse Reel

Timelapse of the Day – January 26, 2013

This is a fantastic timelapse reel by Chad Gordon Higgins of Chadchud Timelapse.  Chad’s work has appeared on the BBC, ITV, and a number of other outlets in the U.K.  Definitely worth a look, especially if you’re curious about the kind of timelapse media companies are buying.  Chad writes:

For me, 2012 was an exciting year which allowed me to develop new time-lapse rigs and work on some interesting and varied projects. I’ve chosen just a small fraction of over 400 time-lapses I shot last year (I can’t show a lot of them as they’ve not been broadcast yet). Some of the rigs I’ve developed include a 26ft time-lapse crane, a 6ft ‘Z’ axis dolly and also a small cable dolly.

A big thank you to my clients; BBC, 12 yard, Boundless, J & A Digital, IWC Media, Nice & Polite, Spin Studio, Optomen, ITV, CH4 and Fremantle – all of which none of my crazy ideas would have been possible to create without!

Some Broadcast Credits in this reel: Coldplay Live 2012, The Apprentice, Top Dog Model, Half Built House, Hotel GB, Bob Marley (commercial) and Four Rooms,

A special thank you to Andy Devonshire, Paul Dugdale, Rima Sen, Nicole Pinch, Stephen Agnew, Susanne Rock and anybody I’ve missed out – a lack of sleep and a non-specific sleep pattern has rendered my brain useless!
