I was in the mood to work on a puzzle this weekend and Maria and Ann offered to help. I thought it might be fun to capture our progress on film, so i get up my camera to take time-lapse shots. The camera took one picture every minute and then i put them all together in iMovie. You can see the short film i call "Putting It Together" on YouTube although the image compression takes away a lot of the detail. It's slighly better on Facebook.
It took some work to actually get the camera in place. I quickly realized that i don't have very many tall things in my apartment. I ended up securing my camera to my large wooden battle spoon (large, as in 5 feet long) and then propped that up on one end on top of an open kitchen cabinet door and on the other end on top of a stack of cardboard boxes. I'm really surprised the whole thing didn't topple over at some point. I also can't believe that the battery in the camera lasted as long as it did. It took 538 pictures over the course of nearly 9 hours. I was up till 3:30 am finishing the puzzle.
