Award at the World Media Festival for FAIR drone video

Time-lapse of the FAIR construction site wins Intermedia Globe SILVER Film Award


Award: The "Longterm Dronelapse 2018-2021", with which GSI/FAIR document the progress of four years on the FAIR construction site, was awarded the "Intermedia Globe SILVER Award" by the World Media Festival. 270 participants from 40 nations took part in the film competition.

The sophisticated and creative film technique convinced the jury: The time-lapse video produced by GSI/FAIR to show the developments on the construction site of the particle accelerator facility FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) was judged as an outstanding contribution in the category "Public Relations/Research and Science". The jury of the "WorldMediaFestivals | Television & Corporate Media Awards" honored the video with the "Intermedia Globe SILVER Award". 

The progress made on one of the largest construction sites for basic research worldwide is made particularly visible with the special GPS filming and processing technique of the "Longterm Dronelapse". Lars Möller from the interdisciplinary media production company "Zeitrausch" from Breuberg regularly flies the same routes over the FAIR construction site with a drone. The moving time-lapse videos filmed in the process are then combined into a single video. Time-lapse videos which have now been recorded over four years are superimposed in the World Media Festival award-winning video thanks to GPS support, so that the developments of the construction activities can be experienced in an impressive way. Last year's Longterm Dronelapse, which shows the development from 2018 to 2020, already won an award at the World Media Festival.

For 22 years, WorldMediaFestivals have been honoring excellence in television, corporate film, online and print at an international level. The awards are, according to intermedia, internationally recognized as a symbol of the highest production standards and one of the world's highest honors in visual competition. The jury decides based on creativity and effectiveness. (LW)
