Magic moments from the oldest motor plant in the world

By combining time-lapse photography and video material, Benjamin Sichert reveals the magical atmosphere that haunts these old factory buildings. The footage shows the oldest motor plant in the world, that was founded in 1864 by Eugen Langen and August Otto in Cologne, Germany, and marks the beginning of Deutz AG. Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach worked here from 1876 in a management position. Unfortunately, the building will soon be demolished to create space for a new cable factory.

It is interesting to note that Benjamin uses a selfmade miniature Dolly (motorized camera slider) to create smooth camera movements and also sells different versions as entry level models for time-lapse photography and video filming.
