In the last blog post, we announced that Albert Dirschler has created German translations for the GBDeflicker and GBTimelapse User’s Guides, which are now available for download here. Thank you again to Albert! We thought it would be fun to continue the theme, and introduce a featured GBTimelapse user from Germany.
Kukulies & Associates Ltd is a production company in Düsseldorf. They’re time-lapse specialists, and just sent us a link to a showreel of work they’ve created with GBTimelapse.
Kukulies & Associates Ltd. creates innovative time-lapse movies, and has over 15 years experience in production and editorial projects for TV stations and companies. They’ve been using GBTimelapse to document massive setups for special events such as stadium concerts and trade shows.
This showreel is a great example of how the GBTimelapse can be used for remote site-monitoring. Just set the camera up, and via a laptop and internet connection, you can maintain full control over your time-lapse from where ever you happen to be (while the camera is in the field, you can control it from your desk, bed, bar.. etc).
From the Kukulies & Associates Ltd. website:
We use only the most modern high-resolution digital systems. The exposure is adjusted in real-time response to changing light conditions of the subject. The advantage: no need for the costly expense of photographers in the field. Our on-site systems require only a standard power supply.
We maintain complete control of the recordings via wireless or LAN in our agency! Our staff centrally monitor the image data, and maintain optimal settings. Through this setup, we can guarantee the best starting material. This reduces the cost to a minimum.
Especially when one of the movies is distributed on the Internet, or used in presentations, the brightness, contrast and color intensity of the source data are crucial to ensure that we get the best results after conversion and compression. Due to the perfect starting material we get from our remote capture system, movies in HD (BlueRay and HD-DVD) and the standard 35 mm film appear in an impressive brilliance.
