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!



Number of images taken over 2 days:

Tech Info:

Fuji Xe-2 camera on solid video tripod

Auto ISO & Exposure to handle the light change all day and eve (ISO 200-800 day, then boosted to 1600 in the eve)
