“I now use many of the techniques I developed at Staffordshire University in my work at Time-Lapse Systems. I have already become an integral part of the team and although I have been learning many new skills on the job, I’m putting to use the wide skillset I learnt at Staffs."
Daniel Daley, Data Manager Time-Lapse Systems
A local photography and film-making company is being transformed into a major business powerhouse, thanks to a team of Staffordshire University graduates.
Time-Lapse Systems, which provides ultra-high definition time-lapse and site monitoring to clients across Europe, now employs five Staffordshire University graduates on a full-time basis and is continuing to grow rapidly with their support.
The latest two employees – Daniel Curtis, BA(Hons) Journalism and Daniel Daley, BA(Hons) Experimental Film Production – graduated this summer and were immediately employed by the company, which is based in Stone, Staffordshire.
Daniel Daley, Data Manager and one of the editors at Time-Lapse Systems, said: “I now use many of the techniques I developed at Staffordshire University in my work at Time-Lapse Systems.
“I have already become an integral part of the team and although I have been learning many new skills on the job, I’m putting to use the wide skillset I learnt at Staffs – from camera operating to editing and post production,” he added.
The roles being undertaken by the graduates are vital, as the company now has 70 live, separate and completely unique camera systems in place across the country.
As well as providing services to the construction industry, and clients such as Balfour Beatty, Kier, Vinci, Lend Lease and GallifordTry, Time-Lapse Systems also work with Alton Towers, Legoland, the Royal Albert Hall, UEFA, Nintendo and Tesco.
Managing Director Dr Gary Kelsall, a former senior lecturer at Staffordshire University, said: “We are proud to be able to give so many graduates an immediate route into employment.
“Rather than be afraid to employ people just starting their careers, we have embraced it and continually see the benefits of the fresh, new ideas they bring into the office with them.”
