 Facelift’s festive magic: All in a day’s work

Facelift’s festive magic: All in a day’s work

2 December 2012 Email this article

If you’re looking for something to get you into the festive spirit, check out this video of us putting up Christmas lights at a central London store.

We shot one frame every 20 seconds for the time-lapse video, which shows us decorate the four storey building with cascading lights, snowflakes and a waving Santa Claus.

We used a 22 metre Ascendant for the job, and were at work from 8am in the morning until 4.30 in the afternoon. It just shows what can be achieved in a day with the right kit.

Julian, Senior Operator, who worked on the job commented: “We really enjoy these festive jobs here at Facelift. There’s something really special about arriving on site to a relatively plain building, and knowing that by the time you’re finished it’s going to be looking really special.

“These sorts of jobs can be very intricate and tricky, but our know-how, combined with a little touch of artistic flair of the lighting company, means that we can get a building decked out for the festive season in just a day.”
