Timelapse is a technique that helps you to capture one week of work in a 5 minute short movie. The technique has been used for a movie about DNWW, the new heat pipeline between the Rotterdam harbor and the city centre. With that movie construction company Visser & Smit Hanab shares with us the complexity of the horizontal directional drilling and the transport of the 1500 meter pipeline. At the same time, it is a tribute to the amazing skylines, the energy of the down town area and the patience of the people of Rotterdam.
The timelapse movie is made by Rotterdam photographer Paul Martens and consists of more than 40.000 high resolution pictures. All made by remote assisted cameras, located on balconies of private homes and apartments along the route.
