A SCOTTISH filmmaker’s timelapse of The Kelpies sculpture’s construction is in the running for a video award.

Walid Salhab’s seven minute-long entry, The Kelpies, is one of 100 entries from all over the world chosen by CODAvideo Awards, set up last year to recognise compelling stories of art and design work from around the globe.

“The goal was to show the unique process of building these structures,” Salhab’s entry states. “A unique stop motion style of time-lapse was developed specially to suit the building process of the Kelpies.”

Salhab, a lecturer at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, regularly produces timelapse clips from around Scotland, especially Edinburgh and the Lothians.
