DPAC Hamilton Timelapse

2 days in 36 sec­onds as Durham gets excit­ed to see Hamil­ton!

DPAC wanted something extra-cool to show off the excitement of announcing the Hamilton tour.

So we planned with them and over a peri­od of two days pho­tographed a time-lapse of the ban­ner going up. Every 20 sec­onds dur­ing the work a pho­to was snapped from the near­by Aloft hotel— they end­ed up just giv­ing me my own key to come and go 🙂

I think the final video is pret­ty mes­mer­iz­ing… watch­ing the ban­ner grow, the time of day change, and blink in and out. Such a fun project!
