Shortly after the Dallas game, I tweeted about a time-lapse photo project covering the game by Jim Westcott of TBD.com. That was a wide spectrum affair using multiple cameras in multiple locations, and it was very cool. What I didn’t know was that there was another time lapse project going on, this one just covering the entirety of gameday from a single angle high above the field. It is also completely awesome, and I’m glad to be able to show it here courtesy of the Redskins Broadcast Network. (And it’s made all the more awesome by the Explosions In The Sky they’re using as a soundtrack.)
A few things that I particularly love:
- The uncovering of the field, culminating in the Redskins logo in the end zone.
- The scurry of pre-game activity — guys confirming the helmet audio, cheerleader warmups, and other miscellany — reduced to brief, split-second blips.
- The introduction helmet inflating at about the 1:00 mark, unleashing cheerleaders and players, and vanishing in a cloud of fireworks.
- The fog rolling in as the game ends and the stadium is broken down.
- The post-game cleaning crew picking up around the seats at high speed.
- The sprinklers kicking on at 2:40 or so.
But that list is kind of redundant, as I find the whole thing really pretty hypnotic to watch.
