I'm so excited to be sharing my 1 Second Everyday video for the month of January. I was inspired by others on the web who implemented this memory keeping strategy as 2016 began. P.s. If you want to start, don't wait for the new year! Start today, try it, even for only a month. You'll love the results, and be surprised how powerful 1 second over time, can be.
I LOVED this podcast with the creator of the app, Cesar Kuriyama. I especially like the point about the power of your second's audio. After hearing that perspective, I've tried to be inspired by the sounds in my world, in addition to the visuals. For example, when I was walking out of an appointment in Midtown, I heard the train passing nearby, and decided to grab my video for the day then. The image I captured tells the story of what I was doing in that moment and the sound of the train also helps trigger the memory of that day/is interesting.
It's no secret that I'm a big fan of montage videos, from family trips, to wedding weekends, I enjoy capturing life's moments on camera. I first learned how to edit videos in middle school on iMovie, and in high school I graduated to Final Cut Pro (what I use now). Setting video clips to the right song pulls on all my heart strings. My most recent favorite = Ed Sheeran's 'Photograph' video.
I love with how easy the 1 Second Everyday app makes the process of recording and editing videos. Check out Elise's blog post for tips if you're interested in trying out the app for yourself. My goal for February is to get myself/my face in the videos more.
