BBC1 Question Time - Time Lapse Movie

On the 1st October 2009 BBC1 recorded an edition of the topical panel show from St Bartholomew's Church in Brighton. St Bart's and adjacent school was selected as the venue fulfilled the tight criteria to stage the show. Rigging the set began just before 2:00 PM the day before and finished just before 5:30 PM on the day of recording. All the gear you see in the church up until the end of day two was transported in one (yes, one!) large articulated lorry.

The movie is a combination of real time and stop frame time lapse footage captured using Canon EOS stills cameras. The real time footage was captured on an EOS 5D MkII & EOS 7D and the time lapse with a Canon EOS 50D and EOS 7D.

The time lapse sequences where combined in Adobe Photoshop and cropped to 1920 x 1080 pixels to fit within the widescreen aspect ratio. The whole programme was then edited using iMovie 08 on a MacBook Pro 13". The audio tracks for the time lapse were recorded wild with a Sharp MiniDisc recorder and Sony stereo microphone. The audio was then copied onto my PC work station and repurposed with Goldwave.

I've uploaded the movie to both Youtube and Vimeo as the quality isn't too hot on Youtube. Here are the links for you to judge for yourselves:
