J is for Jellybeans

Jellybeans are fun. They come in variety of colors, which makes them ideal for a variety of things. Some people have enough dedication to stop eating them long enough to make something artsy out of them, like a picture. Those are cool, seeing as there's this fad of edible art emerging. But how about thousands of pictures. 22 months, 1,357 hours, 30 people, and 288,000 jelly beans? Meet the In Your Arms music video. What's really interesting is that, besides the fact that the whole video is made of jellybeans, it wasn't shot as a video. It was meticulously photographed with a still camera. Picture after picture after picture. And what's really mind blowing? (Because all of that other stuff just wasn't amazing enough). They didn't use a green screen. Meaning that they did NOT shoot the girl (Kinna Grannis) by herself, the jellybean background by itself, and then put them together. What was I saying about dedication?

And some behind-the-scenes on how it was done.
