Yesterday morning, I got up and had this brilliant idea. I wonder if I can make a video of our ENTIRE day and condense it down to 1 minute? But how?
I was inspired by a video that took 2 months of vacation time and condensed it to 1 second video of all the activities into just over 1 minute. It was brilliant. I started taking 1 second worth of video of the kids. They just sat there.
Let’s go to the beach!!! Now we’re talking! Then, the rest of the day just played itself out and I had to remember to keep getting video. There was a couple of hours in the afternoon that I missed because I was all worn out and took a nap.
It was definitely tricky getting 60 separate events throughout the day without making it seem too staged. I finally decided that I should just get video of what we normally do without going too far out of my way to get something “fantastic.”
The editing took just short of forever. My 1 second clips were all between 1.2 and 1.5 seconds, so I had to use the clip trimmer to get them all down to exactly 1 second. ONE at a TIME. Then, I just ran all the video together in order and hit play.
