making faces for halloween

October 28th, 2009 | 3 Comments

Last weekend we carved a couple of pumpkins for Halloween and, as per the usual, I documented it thoroughly. Each of the kids made up a face and drew it onto a pumpkin, and then I carved them. The movie was made by shooting 662 still images with a timer set to take a picture every five seconds. When this was done it was edited together using Quicktime and Adobe Premiere. The music is The Vanguards’ 1963 version of “In the Hall of the Mountain King” by Edvard Grieg.
Happy Halloween all y’all.


  1. cuteness! Have I mentioned before how weird it was that mom and Rick would only buy one pumpkin when we were kids and made us have contests each year to see whose design would be carved in it? I’m sure I have. But I’ll mention it every year about this time, because it was so bizarre.

    I mean… seriously. Buy three pumpkins!!!

    I always got my own pumpkin ’cause I’m special!

    And man, you carve REALLY fast.
