1. I filmed one second every day of 2012.

    The music is "Thunder Clatter" by Wild Cub.


    UPDATE: Thanks to everyone for watching! Here are a few more details about the video:

    It really is, in chronological order, 1 second from every single day of 2012.

    It was shot on a Canon 7D and a few shots on a GoPro Hero2.

    I edited with Final Cut Pro 7 and graded with Magic Bullet Looks.

    Almost all the shots of people are either my wife Jessica or my brother Jimmy.

    BONUS: if you look very closely at 2:25 you can see me wipe out in the distance on a long board. It hurt.

  3. In 2012, I rode my bike from my front door in Copenhagen to Istanbul. It took 31 days, 3000 kilometers, 10 countries and too many people to name them all.
    I wanted to shoot 1 sec every day, but it ended up being less methodical.

    special thanks: all the people I met on the road. svend for sharing the journey. my mom.

    filmed with a gopro hd hero.

    This is the first 3 months of my 1-second a day project. Weekly thematic pieces are here: 7 Seconds

    Everything was shot (and edited for the first 2 months using the iMovie app) on an iPhone 5. For the 3rd month, I imported the project into my computer and used Final Cut Pro X to edit. See below for the rules I made for myself.


    This idea is copied from a TED Talk by Cesar Kuriyama (blog.ted.com/2012/03/02/filming-one-second-every-day-cesar-kuriyama-at-ted2012/). Decided to do the same for my 40th year as an art project, figuring out some rules for myself along the way:

    - I won't film anything that didn't actually happen: e.g. practicing the guitar just to get a shot of me playing an instrument.

    - It's OK to re-do something *in the moment* in order to get my shot: e.g. asking somebody to repeat an action *they just did*.

    - If I can't get the shot (typically of me doing something), it's OK to hand off and ask somebody else to do it.

    - Story over spontaneity: e.g. I might select a shot that inherently communicates what's happening/something more interesting vs. a random moment from a day. Took a while to decide on this one, but it makes the finished piece more accessible to people who don't know me.

    - No effects added in post-, like speeding up or filters. Although I may tweak the audio levels later—not sure yet.

    Began on November 15, 2012, so month 1 has Thanksgiving in there, along with the first same-sex marriages in Washington State. Month 2 has Christmas and a visit to Senator Patty Murray's office. Month 3 has a trip to the Creating Change conference and more comprehensive immigration reform events.

    You should try it too! You can totally do it with just a (smart) phone.
