Look at this building construction time lapse in Edmonton, Canada. photoSentinel captured 32 days of the building of the Red Bull Crashed Ice course in Edmonton for OwlBox with only three photoSentinel systems.

OwlBox co-founder, Michael Moller, says “for the full month, the systems were mounted to a roof mount and… the weather ranged from -30C to about +10C. Connectivity was never an issue and the photos uploaded perfectly. When the track build was completed, I had 24 hours to assemble all the photos and deliver a video to Red Bull for broadcast in 4K. Here’s the end result.”
