January 9, 2013

Maybe you've seen this sort of thing, but if not, it's pretty cool. You might even want to do it yourself.

The idea is to record one second of video per day for an entire year; then edit it together so that you end up with a short, single video of how you lived day by day.

These type of videos has been popping up more and more lately online. The one at the top is from a photographer named Kent Frost. He created this 6 and a half minute recap of his life in 2012. It's titled, "Just a Second."

We found a few others you can check out below.

This piece done by the BBC features a guy named Cesar Kuriyama, who decided to take a year off when he turned 30 to travel and spend time with family.

Here's a similar video from a guy named Jonathan Britnell.

And one from a young woman named Madeline, who recorded one second of video throughout 2011.

Kuriyama enjoyed his experience so much, he developed a smartphone app, "1 Second Everyday", which will allow people to create their own videos.

It's scheduled to be released tomorrow. You can read more about here.
