“We use Lobster Pictures to record timelapse films across a number of our sites and have always been happy with the output. They have equally impressed on this more complex project by capturing the fabrication, lifting and opening of this important bridge.”

James Scott, Director of Planning & Communication, Urban & Civic plc

We were recently asked to make a film showing the construction, assembly, installation and opening of a new 60 tonne bridge in Herne Bay, Kent. The bridge links Altira Business Park to the Beltinge and Mickleburgh Hill areas. The bridge is named after Pilot Officer Albert Hugo Friday, a Spitfire pilot who crashed near the site in 1942.

Our client, the property development and investment company Urban & Civic plc , asked us to capture the full process: from the construction of the bridge at a local steel fabricator, to final placement and grand opening, interviewing key members of the team along the way. We also filmed the erection of the giant crane used to lift the bridge into place.

The film had a super-quick turn around and was edited by our in-house post production team, ensuring the film was ready to be reviewed 24 hours after the bridge was opened.

We are highly skilled at using all kinds of production techniques from time lapse to CGI to 360° video - to best tell the story of your build. Get in touch today to find out more!
