6-second videos? Who’s got that kind of time??
Vine, shmine. How about 1-second videos?
Cesar Kuriyama says, “Like many, I used to take too many photos and videos,” but since turned to capturing a series of 1-second daily impressions. “Now I record less and enjoy the moment more… I’m more mindful of doing something notable every day.”
Now he’s kickstarted an app to enable others to do the same:
The app, currently in development [update: Now available] with the Brooklyn-based studio Alchemy 50, essentially takes the organizational legwork out of the whole endeavor. It provides a calendar, which gets populated with thumbnails for clips as days pass. You can shoot video directly from the app, or snip shorter, second-long clips out of videos from your camera roll, with helpful nudge buttons for zeroing in on just the right bit. You can set the app to give you reminders to shoot video at certain times during the day, and, of course, you can export the full, second-by-second montage whenever you deem it ready.
