A guy I met through Rental Car Rally a few months ago named Cesar Kuriyama is doing an interesting project — he’s taking one second of video of his life every day for one year, documenting his experience and point of view in micro-moments. He has gotten a bit of attention already, because he got into the audition rounds to give a TED Talk on the project. This video here is the trailer that got him selected by the TED Talks committee.
Cesar says he’s planning to launch a website where others join him in recording their own one-second-a-day videos. (Seems like something that would be right up a few Pie Heaven readers’ alley.)
Also…I happen to be in one of the shots in this promo video. I’m the guy dressed as a scientist standing next to the bicycle-riding robot — who is another Pie Heaven contributor, Tim Reese. It’s a quick glimpse of a 2am desert bicycle joust from Rental Car Rally: LA to Tahoe this past February.
Anyway, I wish Cesar luck with the project, and I look forward to seeing the finished 365 second video!
PS: Since we’re on the subject of Rental Car Rally, here’s a video that Cesar put together with footage from the LA to Tahoe rally. There’s another rally coming up at the end of June, LA to Vegas, and I encourage all of you in the SoCal area to sign up. It’s a blast.
