We offer both Short term and Long term Time Lapse Solutions to our customers. Our units are locally designed and manufactured for African conditions. Each timelapse system can be easily installed and effectively secured or mounted for the best results for your project. So no additional mounting brackets, etc. These systems are solar powered to overcome the delays involved in securing electrical power from other sources, thereby ensuring zero downtime as a result of load shedding or general power failures common on most construction sites.

We are specialists in industrial still photography for various applications. Many of our photographs have won awards. There are both practical and advertising value to these still photos. Over the duration of your project we can take stills which can be used as a reference for similar projects in the future or as additional material for your final video production.
To complement your timelapse films, PGP Time Lapse Solutions can also undertake documentary and interview-based HD film footage for your project.
We have a professional post-production facility to put together time-lapse and straight film clips as and when required. We produce finished videos as quickly as you need them.
For all our Time Lapse projects we provide:
• Selecting best camera positions (Vantage Points)
• Production of regular video updates for the duration of the project, as required
• Secure back-up and safe keeping of all images (Data)
• Production of a video of the project for presentations and progress meetings as required
Our managed shoots give you the extra benefit of capturing an important part of your project in more dynamic detail. This has been used to great effect with over-night construction projects, such as concrete sliding and long term concrete pours.
“I can attest to the consistency and quality of the workmanship and equipment used to complete every Time Lapse project. Each project is carefully and meticulously developed and produced according to the customers spec. All video post-productions are excellently presented, using thousands of pictures, individually processed and edited for optimum results. These pictures are date stamped with metadata which makes them factually sound. A well presented product that comes with 40 years of experience and service.”
“Photographically speaking, we have already determined that the best results are gained when there is a plan for the strategic placement of cameras. We develop a specific plan of action that secures the perfect set of photos for individual applications. Our unique ability to understand the technical and architectural requirements of the subject matter, combined with our photographic know-how, offers the client a decided advantage in having material that is photographically and technically excellent. As we all know we only have one shot at this so, by combining experience with know-how, we give your project the best footage possible.”
“As the Shondoni 15000ton PRECAST Coal Bunker was a first for our company, we decided to secure a good photographic record of the project. By making use of time lapse cameras to capture the process we were able to produce a time lapse video that illustrates the process of construction in a short space of time. We also commissioned PGP Time Lapse Solutions to take additional still pictures which we will keep as reference for future projects. I can recommend PGP Time Lapse Solutions for their professional service and overall approach to the Project as a whole.”
“With the slip forming of a 25 meter Concrete Silo for Client Assmang, at their Black Rock Mine in the Northern Cape consisting of four dividing walls from the six meter level up, the decision was taken to do a time lapse recording and training HD video of the process. We made use of two time lapse cameras. We found the equipment to be very reliable in a harsh and challenging environment where temperatures soared into the mid 40°C range. The quality of photographic service and assistance from PGP Timelapse Solutions can be recommended.”
“During the ongoing construction of the road bridge over the Senqu river in Lesotho at Mt Moroosi, we decided to set up a time lapse camera to monitor the water levels of the river during floods. We find the unit installed by PGP Time Lapse Solutions to be reliable and rugged. Being solar powered in a remote area is a big plus point as we can move the unit around to different vantage points when required. The other plus point is that we will have a Time Lapse video at the end of the project.”
When we were awarded the contract for the extensions to the Gautrain Station at the OR Tambo International Airport we opted to install two time lapse cameras to record the progress of the construction. Supplied and installed by PGP Timelapse Solutions these units record the events as they happen. On a monthly basis a progress time lapse video is produced which is presented to the client. At the end of the contract a condensed time lapse version of the construction will be produced. We can recommend PGP Timelapse Solutions for the quality and standard of professionalism displayed. Their experience in understanding construction procedures is a huge plus factor in producing this kind of work.
