A Really Fast Barbeque

This is the first time I’ve taken a crack at time-lapse photography. This 5 minute video of my girlfriend Jenny and I having a barbeque on our back porch actually took about 60 minutes to film. We made sheeshkobobs with shrimp, tofu (I’m not a fan, but anyway), Portobelo mushrooms, two big plumb tomatoes, green and yellow peppers, onions, etc. We ate it all with brown rice and red wine and had strawberry-rhubarb pie for dessert. We video taped the whole thing (cooking the food and then eating the food) from two stationary camera positions. We also took some digital pictures of the proceedings which we’ve inserted into the footage. If I had to film something in time-lapse again, I’d pick something more visually interesting. Nonetheless, hold on tight; it’s a quick 5 minutes. (Special thanks to Bela Fleck and the Flecktones.)
