During the course of filming the documentary we had multiple time lapse cameras set up, including one that captured the growth of a giant pumpkin from pollination to half ton gourd.

All in all, over 600,000 time lapse photos were take. Special software was written to contol and organize all the images.

At the end of the season we contacted an explosive expert to help us releave a little tension.
