Even though I'm shooting a few seconds of video, the app allows me to easily cut it to one second so I can eventually thread all those "one seconds" into a longer video that will become a timeline for my whole year. At the end, I'll have one year in one hour!
I try to choose the highlight of my day to video, but some days it's just me at my computer. It's great that I'm able to capture the humdrum moments as well as the momentous. After all, it's all those moments combined that make up my life.
"1 Second Everyday is a highly polished app that begins with a calendar that is automatically filled with the videos already in your camera roll. Once you pick a video, the interface makes it effortless to select one second from that video. Then everyday you start to build up a collection of one second videos, and you can choose to compile them for a month, year, or custom set of dates." —Apple'n'Apps Review
Cesar Kurlyama, the app's creator, introduced the idea in his 2012 TED Talk. People loved the idea and funded the development via Kickstart in just one week. I can see why it was a popular idea. You know I'm all about capturing memories of daily life. I'll let you know how it goes and if I make it for a whole year. The app makes it so easy though, I can't see how I'll fail!
Try it yourself. The app's just .99 on iTunes.
