Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

I started four weeks ago doing what I call Sing, Sing a Song Saturday.  I'm going to post one song on Saturdays that the boys or I like. I'll see how long I can keep it up.

The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. It may or may not include words. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.

This video is made out of a lot of jelly beans. 288,000 is the magic number for Kina Grannis' "In Your Arms," which is made entirely of Jelly Belly jelly beans. A few more numbers: the project took 22 months, 1,357 hours, 30 people, two ladders and one still camera.

In the making-of video, Grannis spends a lot of time lying down on top of glass, under which lies the jellybean scenery backdrop. Some frames would take five minutes to shoot, others three hours. But their patience paid off!

Watch how the video was made:
