How do I make a "Printing Video"?

I would love to make a video of a print in process, just like Prusa has on the "Weekly 3D Prints" page.  (   Can someone explain how this is done?  It seems (in the videos) that the print head is always stationary in the upper left-hand quadrant.  But when I print, the nozzle/head doesn't go over to that area until the print is finished.  Any production tips would be appreciated.

Many use a Raspberry Pi running OctoPrint. It has built-in features to run a webcam and take time lapse images.  I use a Rpi4 and an old webcam. Plug and Play. And you can also use the setup to do a live web feed you and others can log into to watch the printing process - even control the printer and printing.
