Can filming one second of every day change your life?

Help

When Cesar Kuriyama saved up enough money to quit his advertising job at the age of 30, he planned to take a year off to travel and spend time with family.

To document the year, Kuriyama filmed one second of video every day.

"After just six weeks, I realised I was going to be doing that for the rest of my life," he says.

After editing the clips into a single video, Kuriyama had not only a record of daily life, but a new perspective on how he lived day to day.

Inspired by the experience, he developed a smartphone app, "1 Second Everyday", which will allow users to create their own videos.

The app is scheduled to be released on Thursday.

Everyone will probably have a different experience with their videos, he says, but he says self-reflection is never a bad thing.
