Capture your project and monitor your progress, from anywhere in the world.

Construct Films is a time-lapse production specialist, covering projects and events of any duration from 1 day to several years.

Time-lapse video

Our 4K Ultra HD video is derived from our DSLR stills, edited into monthly clips with a fully produced film at the end of the project.

High-resolution stills


12 megapixel photos are provided as standard, shot using our excellent quality DSLR-based camera system.

Site monitoring

Additional filming

  • For long term projects, we'll also capture live action clips and provide site photography whenever we visit site. All included in our standard prices. We can also make a special visit to capture milestone events.

Privacy and security

  • All images are backed up to our servers using an encrypted connection, ideal for sensitive projects or locations such as film sets, power stations or factories.

  • Multiple backups prevent images being lost in case of camera theft or damage. 

Exceptional reliability

  • We guarantee 100% reliability of our long term time-lapse filming service, a feature that few UK providers offer.

  • Our innovative camera system communicates with our office and warns of any potential problems ahead of time -- allowing us to sort out issues before they interrupt photography.

Straightforward pricing

  • As an efficient company we are proud of our competitive prices and we publish them online

  • Our pricing is simple and fully-inclusive. We charge an installation fee for each camera (which also covers removal) plus a monthly fee for the duration of the project, and this covers everything provided in the service -- from writing risk assessments to sending video clips to keeping the cameras running.

Expert knowledge

  • For each new long term project we survey the site to confirm camera locations, fixtures and power supplies.  We take a few test shots to give the client an idea of what view the camera will have.

  • Our engineers hold CSCS cards, IPAF access licences and are experienced photographers on construction sites.

Optional extras

Every project is different so we offer a range of options to tailor our filming service to your exact requirements: 

  • Full film production service: Construct Films is experienced in filming corporate functions and live events, and we think nothing can show off a project better than a captivating video of interviews, project milestones and time-lapse shots showing how obstacles were overcome and progress was made.
