Apparently the Nikon DSLRs have an interval timer, but Canon is behind
on this one...  An external shutter release can fix this.

I'm not using anything hacked to generate these.  I just set up the
camera on a tripod with a wired or wireless cable release and made it
available for anyone to trigger.  One was dinner christmas eve, another
two were photo booths I set up at parties:

I then used ffmpeg to assemble a series of .jpg files into a .mp4
