The Helix is extremely proud to present 'The Kelpies', a timelapse short film by award winning filmmaker Walid Salhab.
Using a unique hyperlapse technique, this video features footage captured within a live construction site.
Filming under these conditions is rarely possible; filming under these conditions using the hyperlapse technique is close to impossible.
Created from over 60 days of stop-motion filming across 7 months, and tracking construction through to completion, this film uses over 12,000 individual photos, none of which have been edited or manipulated beyond settings inside the camera. Walid captured 120,000 individual images to create this seven minute masterpiece.
