Playing with time-lapse videos

Creative storytelling about the arts perfectly lends itself to time-lapse videos.
Why didn't I think of this before?

Granted, you have to set aside time to stay and watch an artist create an entire project, but for me, that was the plus side, not the downside.

With iMovie, making a time-lapse video is a no-brainer. Just film the process, convert the clip in iMovie and change the speed. This is at 1,500 percent, but you can go up to 2,000 percent. I could have even slowed it down to 800 percent, but we didn't have enough audio to run underneath. 

Here's a short little time-lapse ditty about a local woman making monotypes using an ancient etching press.
