Cesar Kuriyama: One second every day. 

There are so many tiny, beautiful, funny, tragic moments in your life — how are you going to remember them all? Director Cesar Kuriyama shoots one second of video every day as part of an ongoing project to collect all the special bits of his life.

Cesar Kuriyama has been selecting one second of video from every day of his life, and editing them together into a montage that both records his life, and forces him to reevaluate how he approaches each day.

“It’s also kind of a protest, a personal protest, against the culture we have now where people just are at concerts with their cell phones out recording the whole concert, and they’re disturbing you. They’re not even enjoying the show. They’re watching the concert through their cell phone. I hate that. I admittedly used to be that guy a little bit, back in the day, and I’ve decided that the best way for me to still capture and keep a visual memory of my life and not be that person, is to just record that one second that will allow me to trigger that memory.” – Cesar Kuriyama
