Here’s a thing I wanted to share with you as a kind of final haymaker punch to the frustrating year that was 2014.
There’s this app called 1 Second Everyday. You put it on your phone and start shooting video. As much or as little as you want, for as long as you want. After a certain amount of time, 1SE will string all of your clips together into tiny increments, giving you a frantic video patchwork of your last month, year or whatever. It’s a cool idea, works like a charm and never crashed on me. I think it costs a dollar.
Near the end of 2013 and deep into 2014, I tried to remind myself to shoot some video everyday for my 1SE project. I’m not the type to capture a lot of photos and video when experiencing something interesting, and sometimes I would just grab a few seconds of me petting the cats, but I did manage to put together about 120 seconds of usable footage. It’s mostly sushi, cats and beer, but I cannot think of a more accurate snapshot of how I live my life.
No, seriously. A lot of sushi, cats and beer.
So anyway, here it is (after a few tweaks and adding some music). Take it or leave it; I just couldn’t bear to have it sitting on a hard drive. Turn up the sound, watch and enjoy.
So long, 2014. For real. The CDP returns with more new stuff shortly.
