Chelsea Flower Show 2015

This year at Chelsea we were commissioned to film three show gardens on behalf of their respective sponsors... thousands of viewers have now seen the planning, effort and detail that goes into producing a gold medal winning garden at the most prestigious event of its type in the world.

Seasonal growth

The green-fingered among us, or anyone who can enjoy a garden or allotment, will be fascinated by the growth of plants at this time of year. At the Construct Films studio, one lucky seedling was singled out for a quick time-lapse project...

Upgraded filming services for 2014

In many competitive industries a proverb goes "If you're not moving forwards, you're going backwards", as there is simply no way of standing still. Our primary drive at Construct Films is to continuously advance our technology and production standards, and we are delighted to upgrade our filming services for 2014.

Time-lapse clip to be broadcast on TV

One of our time-lapse clips will be broadcast in 2015 on the Discovery Channel in the USA and the UK, as part of the How The Universe Works series produced by the award-winning Pioneer Productions based in London.

An episode in the series looks at the harsh environments on distant planets, searching for evidence of water. To illustrate this, Pioneer asked to use our Rust macro time-lapse which shows rust forming on steel at high magnification.

We provided the clip at 4K Ultra HD, the next-generation quality standard which has four times as much detail as Full HD (1080p) on Blu-ray discs. Pioneer is delivering their series in Full HD, but the larger size of our clip allows Pioneer's editors to crop and zoom into the clip without any loss of quality. Construct Films has experience of producing footage to broadcast-quality standards, which are amongst the most stringent measures of technical video quality.

Our Rust clip has already been used by The King's University College in Canada in materials science classes. Due to its popularity we've made it available as a stock footage clip. We'll be experimenting with more macro time-lapses in the coming months.

Introducing our time-lapse filming service

We're delighted to announce our new time-lapse filming service. For nearly three months we've been developing the technology and infrastructure to rival the best in the UK, and today it's ready.

Time-lapse video is a fascinating medium that, when coupled with the right kind of project, has the potential to inspire casual viewers, update colleagues on progress and provide an archive of a project.
