Election counts can be both exhilarating and exhausting. For those who missed the count, or are interested to see how it works - we've put this quick video together, showing a lot of the action.
This is a time-lapse video, from the Cork South Central count, for General Election 2011, recorded in City Hall Cork, on Saturday Feb 26th 2011, from 9am through to 5pm.
The technical bits: recorded by Ronan Kirby on a Canon 5D Mark II, tethered to a computer. Video is comprised of about 5000 still images, on a 2 second exposure, set to shoot every 6 seconds. The resolution then lowered to HD-TV standards, cropped to 16:9 and packaged for video at 25 fps.
Available in Full 1080p upon request.
