Top tips: time-lapse your event

Following on from our insightful blog post about The Power of Video, we are focussing on the ever popular time-lapse videos. Here at visionevents, we’re big fans of time-lapsing our events as it can show so much of what we do and achieve. This is shown in a short video, so attention spans aren’t stretched!

What is a time-lapse video?
It’s a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played back at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster (therefore, time-lapsing). For instance, an image of the stage set may be captured once every minute, then played back at 30 (or so) frames per second making it a fast paced account of what’s happened during that period.

Why would time-lapses help showcase your event?
We find that clients love it when we share our time-lapses with them and they have created a real buzz on social media. This in turn immediately promotes and increases awareness of the event for future potential delegates/sponsors/partners. Not to replace a montage which showcases an event in more depth, time-lapses can complement it with a fun, fast paced account of all the hard work and ‘behind the scenes’ activities that guests often don’t get to see – and perhaps don’t understand!

How we can help you create a time-lapse
As we can start capturing footage from the moment our equipment leaves the vans; through set up, rehearsals, live event and then the strip out, clients have loved seeing this showcase of how their event comes to life…and disappears. It’s a great and light hearted way to record your event.
