Time Lapse Aging

There's something cool about time lapse photography.  It seems several folks on YouTube have put together time lapse photographs of themselves aging over time.  By taking 1 photo per day every day for years, you can put together a little animation that shows you aging.  From what I've found, the longest stretch of time over which someone took photos like these is 17 yearsIf you took one photo of yourself per day for your whole life, how long would the video last?


Films generally run around 30 frames per second.  A person can live over 100 years or 36,000  days. This means you would show a total of 36,000 pictures.  If each picture being shown for 1/30th of a second, the video would last 20 minutes. 

Sadly, unless someone started doing this at least 30 years ago, I won't be able to see a full life progression sped up in my lifetime.
