Back in late 2016/early 2017 I started a one second a day video project but I failed in completing it. I was using a mix of clips from all of my video recording devices (iPhone, DSLR and GoPro) and was using Adobe Premiere to create a compilation – it was honestly a nightmare. Files were everywhere, and it was a lot of unnecessary work. I gave up trying to create a video like this until late 2017 where I had seen someone had posted about their own one second a day video, and that they were using the 1 Second Everyday app. I knew that using this app was going to be SO MUCH easier! So once 2018 started, I was going to give this a solid try. All you do is record some video on your phone and then place in the app on the day it belongs to, select your one second clip, give it a caption if you’d like and continue on tomorrow. (Even if you forgot to do add the videos in the app everyday, it makes it really easy to get the video for that particular day.)
I am pleased to say that I have completed my own 1 Second Everyday for 2018! Some days were definitely a challenge, and some days I forgot to record when I was doing something exciting and had to film something less cool – like what show I was binging on Netflix that evening, but it is really neat to look back on the year in one second clips in about 6 minutes. It’s a great way to reflect on the best parts of your year (as well as the shittier times). And to see how much we actually eat tacos and pizza! On this version I am sharing below, I did take out a few clips because they were work related stuff that I cannot publicly show, or that they are projects in the works that have not been announced yet. I honestly could not have done this project without the help of Josh! He recorded any video that was taken while in a vehicle as well as kept on me to make sure I completed this challenge that I set out for myself.
* All videos that were taken while in a vehicle were recorded by my passenger (Josh). Please do not record video while behind the wheel. Distracted driving is dangerous and against the law. Do not risk your life or other people’s lives just for a video.
