    Growing M&Ms


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     bwells and his wife put together a neat stop-motion, time-lapse video of M&Ms rising in a bowl. It only took the pair 90 minutes to place 1,832 M&Ms in the bowl, snapping photos along the way. Now, what was the inspiration for the video? 'My wife likes to track the light throughout the year. She got a jar, and for every minute of light as the days got longer, she added an M&M, showing the daylight changing over the year. We thought, 'Why don’t we just put the jar out and do a time-lapse?'' he said.
    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    These 1832 M&Ms just seem to grow and grow!  Magical.


    Shot by my wife Pamela with her Canon 7D in our home.  Do you know how it was done?
