A FILMMAKING technique that creates moving footage from time-lapse images is to be used for an arts project in Falkirk after being twice successfully deployed in Edinburgh.
Walid Salhab, a media practice lecturer at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, is to begin work on The Helix, described as “a land transformation project driven by Falkirk Council and Scottish Canals which is turning 350 hectares of land between Falkirk and Grangemouth into a vibrant new parkland with visitor attractions”.
Says a media release announcing his involvement: “Walid has been contracted to produce a time lapse/stop motion film of the Helix project as it moves toward completion. His main focus will be the 75-day construction phase of The Kelpies, two 30-metre high steel-plated sculptures of horses’ heads, weighing over 600 tonnes, which will tower above the Forth & Clyde canal and form a dramatic gateway at the eastern entrance to Helix Park.
