Help me figure out how to do a time lapse video.

I'm facing a massive construction project I want to chronicle, start to finish, in a time lapse video. How do I go about this?

Do I stand in the same interior place everyday, and take a picture from the same angle for the duration of construction?
I've got a Droid 2, a MacBookPro, OSX 10.6.8. & a point and click digital camera.
There's an app for androids called Tina Time-Lapse. But you have to import the pictures to a media player, MPlayerX. I don't have any experience with MPlayerX. Is this something a non-computer geek like myself can figure out? Is there anyone here who's done something similar? Any tips you can give me? Do you import a picture everyday into MPlayerX, to make sure nothing gets lost? Or do it in one large file at the end of, say, 365 days? Is there a simpler way to do a time lapse video?
I know what I want; I just don't how to get there.
