Los Angeles filmmaker Joe Penna, whose online persona is MysteryGuitarMan, spent 10 months making this stop-motion timelapse video to illustrate his wife Sarah Evershed’s pregnancy and the birth of their child Jonah Lane Penna (MysteryGuitarBaby). The video starts out with a car that has broken down, and the husband pumping air into the tires as his wife’s belly grows bigger and bigger. Then, violà, a baby! It’s the product of teamwork at its best.
They are the latest couple to go viral for a timelapse video version of “baby bump photography,” from the husband who serenaded his wife throughout her pregnancy to the woman who blew up a balloon for extra dramatic effect while the camera was rolling.
