David Knight - 17th Dec 2013

This two minute video directed by Noah Conopask, with music by Reuben Wu of Ladytron, is a celebration in time-lapse photography of the awesome precision of heavy machinery at work. 

Created for General Electric and CSX, Noah and Reuben spent a few days at CSX's intermodal facility in Ohio filming, recording, and rigging cameras on trains, cranes, and containers in order to demonstrate the complexity of the tightly-orchestrated intermodal system - which is the process of moving goods across trains, trucks, and ships.

The music includes terminal sounds captured by Wu onsite and incorporated in his original score, and this is essentially a heroic vision of essential industrial activity. Transformers looks a bit lame in comparison.
