Video: Time-lapse of Garcelon Field renovations

If you think a Maine summer goes by quickly, take a look at this time-lapse video showing the installation of a new FieldTurf surface, grandstand, press box and lights at Garcelon Field.

The 1-minute, 9-second video begins with the dismantling of the old grandstand and concludes with the field’s dedication on Oct. 9 during the football team’s Parents & Family Weekend home opener vs. Williams.

The video’s still images were taken by a digital SLR camera mounted on a tripod in a second-story storage room in New Commons. Starting back on May 28, the camera took a picture every seven minutes, each of which was fed to an iMac close by.

To produce the video, Scott Tiner and Colin Kelley of the Digital Media Studios selected a subset of the 23,000-plus pictures, eliminating idle stretches, such as weekends.
