After more than three years, and nine months early, the construction has all but come to an end in Northeast Tarrant County, home to Fort Worth and neighbor to Dallas. NTE, the North Tarrant Express, is a project to widen a heavily congested portion of roads through six municipalities near Fort Worth, connecting to Dallas. TopPup Media was called on to video document the construction over the past two years, and SFilms partnered with TPM to make that happen.
Construction video is extremely different than the normal corporate video shoots. First, all crew people out in the construction zone had to be safety trained and wear the proper safety equipment. Also, the type of shots for showing construction are different– the story is told through aerials and timelapse, with a little standard video shooting.
We have really enjoyed shooting for NTE and we’re fortunate to be able to continue through our work in Dallas with the LBJ Express and the newly christened NTI, I-35 through Fort Worth project.
The Ribbon Cutting for NTE was held on a beautiful October Saturday and had many dignities from the six cities– Fort Worth, Euless, Bedford, Hurst, North Richland Hills, and Haltom City.
