This time lapse film documents The Milhous Collection Auction by RM Auctions in Boca Raton, Florida. Design215 photographer, Robert Giordano, set up Nikon DSLR cameras to capture the setup of the auction tent and the auction itself. Filming started on February 10, 2012 and finished on February 25, 2012. Camera positions were changed several times. Design215 used their own, custom made mounting brackets, modified external timers, tripods, sandbags, rain covers, and various Nikon lenses.
The Milhous Collection was an unprecedented assortment of antique cars, furniture, clocks, firearms, and even a full size carousel, all housed in a private, 39,000 square foot museum, in Boca Raton. The auction itself took place on February 24 and 25 and resulted in almost $40 million in sales. Items included a 1912 Oldsmobile that sold for $3.3 million, a full size carousel for $1.3 million, a 1941 PT-22 airplance for $241,500, and a vintage barber chair for $28,875.
