One Second Everyday 2014

During the course of 2014 I recorded one second of my life everyday for the entire year. This included some happy memories and also some sad. Seconds of my kids laughing, seconds of them crying. There are seconds of just about everything. I recorded all of the clips on my iPhone 5c except a few seconds which were shot on a GoPro. I edited everything together using Sony Vegas 11. It was a fantastic project and one that I am continuing into 2015.

I got the idea to do this project from Cesar Kuriyama who did a Ted Talk in 2012. His talk was very inspiring to me and I recommend checking it out if you have a few minutes.

Cesar created his own app to make recording your own one second video extremely easy. While I don’t use his app, but instead use my own method to create my video you are still more than welcomed to visit 1secondeveryday.com to find out more about his app.

So here is my final result. The music in the video is The Winner by DeVotchKa, which was featured on the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack. I had to edit the track to make it a little longer but it is still beautiful all the same. If you decide to make your own video please share it in the comments below!

Richie

My name is Richie and I am a 34 year old father of two. My daughter is seven years old and my son is four. I am married to a beautiful woman named Destiny. She is the foundation of our family, and without her, none of this would be possible. During the day I work as a network administrator for a local school district. At night I can be found illustrating books, working on websites, or creating music, but more than likely though I am spending time with my kids.
