Leeds Music Festival is held every year at Bramham Park, Leeds and takes over three weeks of installation and production before it’s gates are ready to be safely opened to crowds of over 75,000 campers and music fans. Crowd safety is paramount at such large music events, so safety barriers, fencing and security gates need to be installed in addition to roadways to combat either mud or dust, both of which featured at Leeds Festival this summer as weeks of scorching weather turned to monsoon conditions less than a day after opening. Emergency roadways need to be installed to allow quick access to all areas of the vast site as do safe working platforms around the music stages to enable the construction of the high tech light and sound rigs.
Good product photography is vital to encourage on-line sales, but still life photography despite being worth a thousand words, can’t always tell the whole story.
Many products benefit from this advanced media presentation whether used as a video on-line, in television commercials or on eye catching screens during presentations or at live exhibitions, especially when sound effects or backing tracks are used as in the product animation video below.

By their very nature construction projects are normally long drawn out affairs and it is sometimes difficult for engineering companies and contractors to demonstrate their abilities to prospective customers. One answer is with the use of time lapse photography where projects measured in weeks or even months can be reduced to minutes.The result is a presentation in video format which can be viewed on line or as part of a face to face sales pitch.
As part of the completion of the UK’s largest nuclear project it was necessary for Sellafield Nuclear Energy in Cumbria to transport components for Evaporator D by sea as due to size and weight transport by road was not an option. This operation called for the laying of a temporary aluminium roadway spanning the beach, a canal and a railway line. A temporary underwater platform was also constructed to receive and ‘beach’ the barge during unloading.
The first two of the planned eleven modules required for the facility were successfully transported via Self Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMT) 1.5 kilometers from the Interserve Pioneer Point facility, Cheshire to the specialist barge the Terra Marique, moored at Manchester ship canal.
The project of laying the temporary roadway was assigned to TPA Portable Roadways and was recorded by time lapse specialist photographers Linton Studios of Wetherby, near Leeds. Over 15,000 images were taken over a period of ten days and laced together to form a video lasting just six minutes.
Nick Davis, TPA’s Sales and Marketing Director stated “the production of this time lapse video production has provided us with a valuable sales tool which enables us to clearly demonstrates our skills in this highly specialised market”.
The eco-friendly timber framed properties both arrived by lorry on the morning of the builds and were fully constructed as the light faded at 4:00 pm in British winter time each day.
The first time lapse photography sequence shows two semi-detached properties being constructed without the use of scaffolding.The following day the second plot, which this time was constructed using scaffolding, was erected.
The next stage of the construction process was the installation of the roofs, each fitted with solar panels. The detatched property has a solar tile system installed and the semi-detatched properties receive solar panels.
