EarthCam released this Telly Award-winning time-lapse movie showcasing construction for The Oculus, New York City’s new transportation hub, from July 2011 to May 2016, in honor of the ribbon cutting ceremony on May 26.
A message from the CEO and Founder of EarthCam, Brian Cury:
“Unique and impressive designs like The Oculus are defining 21st century architecture and my hope is this movie acts as a time capsule of our innovative culture. We are proud to provide industry leaders with a powerful visual medium to showcase their legacy projects in a meaningful way for future generations.”
EarthCam’s time-lapse editors pored over more than one million high-resolution photographs and panoramas, and hand-edited them into a cinematic time-lapse movie, showcasing the nearly 5-year project from start to finish in less than 2 minutes.
