In the Spring of 2018, I was contracted through Finger Lakes Community College's Athletic Department to document the process with my drone of the removal of the grass athletic field and the installation of the new athletic turf field.
The project took about 7 Months of shooting. This was followed by about 3 months of editing/post production.
s part of my contract with the College, I created a time-lapse by combining pictures taken from the same GPS coordinates using my drone almost everyday from May 2018 to March 2019 showing the progression of the turf field being installed.
The contractors put the finishing touches on the athletic fields in late March 2019 by adding a wind screen that encompasses the entire surrounding fence. At the College's request, the contractors waited until after the harsh winds and snow of a typical upstate NY winter weather to install the wind screen.
Post production of the time lapse took some time, but I'm happy with the end result. I brought nearly every photo into Lightroom and cropped each photo to align them properly and applied color correction, if needed. I used Photoshop and Premiere Pro to create the video and apply a couple special effects to it. It is very neat to watch.
