  1. The Technical Operations department (part of The Media Group) installed a time lapse camera on the rooftop of one of the west campus dorms to record the construction process (which they do for most new construction projects at the university). Traditionally, these are super-VHS records – which apparently is now an obsolete format.

    BU Productions digitized the S-VHS tapes into our Avid edit system and Chris cut the piece. BU Productions got the final, current shot of the building, which was recorded on DVCAM tape.

  2. I have had the pleasure of watching this project from my office window. Some days were small additions to the building, and others would be extensive facade changes. It was great to relive it with the video.
