Bejaw Video Productions Captures Their First Construction Project in San Jose
CamDo customer, David Manzo, owns Bejaw Video Productions in the San Francisco Bay area. He recently completed his first time lapse photography project for a local construction firm. They were building a high-tech campus featuring four towers and one parking structure, with a project cost between $700-800 million. Manzo got into time lapse photography almost by accident and he shares his amazing journey with us in this post.READ THE FULL STORY
Onto the next time lapse
Hanging with the crew
Now that I’ve somehow made it through the first project, I got the unit right back out there on a new Student Housing project at Menlo College in Atherton, CA. After I get the camera up, I start collecting “Field-lapses” these are short time-lapses of a particular part of construction. These guys are the cement crew and they’re very excited to see the 45 second video of their 6 hours of labor pouring the flooring.
What you’re seeing here is five hours of work for a crew of twenty guys. They’re pouring the floor surface with concrete from 27 trucks in the summer heat. Two hundred-fifty-six yards of concrete! Each truck emptied in roughly eight minutes. Theres no margin for error.
This one’s up and running… stay tuned
After learning the hard way, not to forget a single thing when you’ve got a crew hoisting you up in a box 35′ to a roof peak to install a time lapse camera. Man! it was a very hot day and my nerves almost got the best of me. Stay tuned for updates on this project.
