Time Lapse Video: Making Popcorn

For my second video assignment for these two weeks I decided to do the “Activity Time Lapse” (3.5 stars). I thought it would be fun to do. I especially wish I had more time this week to do an art project and do a time lapse of that, but of course I don’t so I had to be a little more creative. I decided to do a time lapse video of me making popcorn–because who doesn’t like popcorn and also I wanted to eat some.

How I did it:

I saw that there was a time lapse function on my iPhone so I decided to try it out with this assignment. I hit start recording and grabbed my popcorn, walked upstairs and put it in the microwave and watched it pop. I watched it on my phone and thought it was a little too fast so I emailed it to myself and downloaded it. I then put it into Windows Live Movie Maker and slowed it down to half speed. That was perfect, I thought, so I exported it and went to zamzar to change it to MP4 and uploaded it to YouTube.

Here is how it turned out:


  1. This was cool! I like how it pops up so quickly!

  2. I thought that watching the popcorn pop would be my favorite part, but I actually had more fun watching you bring the popcorn package to the microwave haha!

  3. I love this! I really like how you decided to bring the popcorn to the microwave instead of just showing it pop. I would have just shown the popcorn in the microwave.
