The Kid Should See This

One Minute Vacation – One second per day for 2 months

This video by Kevin Kelly demonstrates how much texture, detail and feeling you can communicate with very little. From Kevin: 

I took a one-second clip each day on a two-month trip in Asia during April & May 2012. On a few days I just had to do an extra second, so this video is actually 90 seconds long. I was inspired by Ceasar Kuriyama’s one-second-per-day life summary. Since it was only one second per day I filmed it on my Lumix still camera; edited on iMovie. This is all the video I took.

Not only is it an exercise in the power of editing brief moments together, but it’s an exercise in self-control when filming. Such an excellent project for a kid. What one second in your day would you choose to record?
