New York — The Telly Awards, which honor excellence in video and television across all screens, recently bestowed this honor on EarthCam with an award in Video Editing for its World Trade Center Oculus time-lapse movie. EarthCam CEO and Founder, Brian Cury, shared the recognition with Steven Plate, Chief of Major Capital Projects for the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ) and presented the award at the PANYNJ Conference.
The Santiago Calatrava-designed World Trade Center transportation hub, known as The Oculus, is located in the heart of downtown New York City between 3 World Trade Center and the site of what will be 2 World Trade Center. EarthCam released a time-lapse movie showcasing The Oculus construction from July 2011 to May 2016 in honor of the ribbon cutting ceremony on May 26, 2016. The video is framed by more than 1 million high-resolution photographs and panoramas mixed into a cinematic time-lapse movie, showcasing the nearly five-year project from start to finish in less than two minutes.
“Unique and impressive designs like The Oculus are defining 21st century architecture, and my hope is this movie acts as a time capsule of our innovative culture,” Cury said. “We are proud to provide industry leaders with a powerful visual medium to showcase their legacy projects in a meaningful way for future generations.”
