Post From the vault: Light Industrial
This timelapse clip was filmed nearly 30 years ago with out an intervalometer and includes some very early hyperlapse shots.
Apologies for image quality as uploaded from a reference 3/4" umatic tape.
Those were the days when one could film anywhere,any time without all the current issues concerning security.

(Hi Pixelbot, followed your instructions but I couldn't get it to embed with Vimeo page displayed :oops: )

no worries you need to make sure you remove the "s" and add a "www." and viola :-)

great to see the old stuff - also cool to see that you had Hyperlapse in there very ambitious for the time - I have a piece I did about how cheese made (all in time lapse, shot on a bolex which I still have) - from 1991 - looking back it feels very pedestrian, fun title though "From Moo to You: The Making of Cheese"

Pixelbot, thanks for that.
We couldn't access/afford an intervalometer for the Arriflex camera loaned by a friend, and so we fitted a large Meccano(toy building set) wheel to the inching knob as shown in the Vimeo poster frame above.
The camera operator earned his credit on the film as every frame was exposed by opening and closing the shutter by hand while constant exposure was achieved with a hand held audible dark room timer.
Access to those various locations was really easy - just walk in - and nobody in authority ever questioned what we were up to.
The only problem was the gunk we would have to clean off the gear each night.
