Every day for the past year, Matt Skuta made sure that he filmed something. Sometimes it was a trip to the mall. A couple of times, it was being part of the studio audience of The Daily Show. Very often, it had something to do with one of his dogs — indeed, on February 27, you can see the last appearance of Ginger, who died that afternoon.
At the end of the year, he edited together all the clips into the movie above, and set it to a stirring score, turning his 2013 into a movie. (It doesn't hurt that Skuta, a 21-year-old from Oklahoma, is a film student.)
If the concept sounds familiar, it could be because Skuta was inspired by Cesar Kuriyama, a Brooklyn-based producer who started recording one second of every day a couple of years ago. His video "1 Second Everyday - Age 30" went viral, and led him to launch an app that makes it easy for people record their lives. Here's Kuriyama's video:
