I feel the need, the need for speed-themed videos.
Time-lapse mini films have become instant viral feed in the past 12 months. There are plenty of really great ones out there, but over time, there's a diminishing-returns factor to them. No matter, I was wondering how the metamorphosis of a 60,000-ton ship into a basketball venue would take place. Someone was smart enough to perch a camera a few hundred feet above the USS Carl Vinson and document to slow-but-speedy transformation.
Lots of cranes, forklifts, the usual. The day/night turnover is also fun. The court looks a little more blasé than I'd expected, but this is a game taking place to honor our military, so it's appropriate to go straight-laced.
