Grapes become raisins right before your very eyes in only 30 seconds! This is a phenomenon that you aren't going to want to miss! Is it magic? Religion? Science? I refuse to reveal my methods. Except for these few things...

This video took over 3 months to shoot. I shot it with a Sony VX2100 mini dv video camera in "interval record" mode. The camera shot a half second of video every 10 minutes. In total, I had over 90 minutes of tape that I condensed to 30 seconds. In all, the final product is over 250,000 times faster than reality (could someone please check my math).

I edited this video with Final Cut Pro. The song is "Sonique_30" which was purchased from the Studiocutz Music Library. The grapes were from Giant Eagle.

I apologize about the shaking in the video. I used a new setup with boards under the camera and fruit that I thought would make it more stable. Unfortunately, changes in temperature and humidity caused the boards to warp up and down. It was unnoticeable in real time, but very noticeable when the tape was sped up so much. I used keyframes to reduce the shaking and even though it's not perfect I think I came up with something that is very watchable.

I couldn't bear to throw out 3 months worth of shooting - which is what I might have to do with my Kiwi video if something doesn't start happening soon. Those are some stubborn fruits. Tune in to see how it turns out.
