Pumpkin Carving Timelapse with Noe & Pedro @ecken @videopixil

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Last night, Pedro, myself and our little helper, carved our last pumpkin and thought we’d put together a timelapse video. What’s interesting about this timelapse is that there’s movement – Not a static, locked down shot. The camera appears to be sliding and panning across the table as we carve and gut the  pumpkin. We were able to achieve this effect with the help of one our favorite DIY 3D printed projects.

BLE Motorized Slider

Our motorized slider uses an Arduino Uno, an Adafruit Motorshield, and a BLE friendly module. This little guy is great for getting these type of low-profile, close-up shots but we’re limited to the length of the rail and direction. We recently got ourselves a Syrp Genie Mini, which is a handy little motion panning motor designed for timelapse photography. With the addition of panning while sliding, the camera is able to capture more angles of a subject and makes for a more interesting timelapse.

Circuit Playground NeoPixels

To illuminate the pumpkin, we used the Adafruit Circuit Playground. Phil B’s Simulated Candle code makes for a great “last minute” electronics that is looks both authentic and long lasting with the help of our 3D printed case and a lipo battery – Just make sure put it in a ziplock bag :-).


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
