Time Lapse Video Production

While a picture is worth a thousand words, a video can be even more effective. In fact, 64% of customers are more likely to make a purchase after they watch a product video.
Time lapse video allows you to show a progressive sequence of events and keep your video under two minutes long — the preferred length for viewer engagement.
NextThought Studios is proud to offer time lapse video services to our clients. Leave the project to us.

Why time lapse?

While time lapse video might not be appropriate for every project, when it’s used judiciously, it can make a big impact.

With the ever-increasing demand for video, time lapse has only increased in popularity over the last few years. What does this mean for your marketing efforts? A well-executed time lapse video can help your company go viral in no time. The value of having a fun video when it’s time to market your organization is priceless.

What are time lapse videos ideal for?

Timelapse Construction Icon (1)


Say, for instance, you own a construction company; you want a quick way to show the process of remodeling an office space, but you don’t want to lose your audience with a five-minute video. Enter time lapse — you can get your point across and show the before and after with a cool, fun-to-watch video.

Timelapse Nature Icon (1)


Time lapse video is especially effective when utilized in tandem with nature. Are you a landscaper? Time lapse video can showcase the work you’ve done in an outdoor space, allowing you to show off your work in a new and interesting way. You can show the changes within a garden from season to season in seconds rather than hours.

Timelapse Manufacturing Icon


You’re proud of your efficient processes— why not show them off with a time lapse video? “How is this made?” videos are evergreen, and they’re often used on television shows, too. This is indicative of the level of interest your audience will have for this variety of video. Creating a time lapse video of your production process will help your business stand out from the competition.

How does it work?
