Ironic you mentioned how the filming was coming along because...

I Am Now On Day 100

It was abit hard since I always try not to force filming and the fact that I wasn't used to recording on days I'd stay in the house. Overall though, I love the project...

When I see certain days I remember exactly what happened, this might be great for when I write a book about my life. The other aspect...
- Girls I meet, I show them this video making it even easier to bring women into my life
- My personal facebook page is "stalker/lurker" friendly so lots of chicks hit me up AND I'm at a point where I don't even have to post anything since peoplea are constantly tagging me. I've now got people from cities such san fran, phoneix, london, denmark, sweden, lithuania, swizterland, mexico, etc who can't wait to comeback and live it up with me.
- It's a GREAT MOTIVATION TOOL, although my music videos pump me up more, this particular video remind me to LIVE instead of "spectating"
- Embracing the unknown, not knowing how the next 30 days would look in the montage is exciting. (Originally, while at 1st I did like this idea/project I thought it would just be saturated with partying clips...how wrong I was)
- It reminds me "I'm living life" so when others don't come along for the ride, it's easy to let go because those last 100 days continued with or without them. They simply played little significance in terms of "I will still be living this life"
- Actual visual confirm "its her issue not mines" because if a gorgeous chick ignores me or walks off. I know 100% she's the one missing out, its almost as if, she seen the video she would look at how bored she generally is and think "wow that was dumb of me!!! Why did I not go after that guy!!"

Anywho, enjoy...100 days!!!

 ahhhhhh russian!!! 

Yep, I really wish more people did this shit, for me it's so exciting seeing other worlds. It's just rare to find anyone who actually did one far less stuck to it. I remember seeing ones from tokyo, germany and a suburban skateboarder/student (graphic designer) it was like seeing a different world for me. (Even seeing your 18 sec one) It truly does inspire me to continue living. Thanks for the share...

(Hope you other fuckers put up yall videos too on here...I've seen OPs video awhile back)

Very very happy I started this thread, glad to see so many people taking it on!

Here's mine, I've split it up into monthly videos as well as splitting my life up into menial and then memorable so people can see that life isn't just about the highlights.

Here's my first month filming, May and April are both on the channel below.

Day 49 or so here, its amazing so far!!!!

I don't know any other programs that would make what I did easier, other than good editing softwares like final cut, sony vegas, etc. Essentially, I make the base template and copy paste, filling in the color of the correct day and date. It makes it very easy.

P.S...I was so addicted to this that while in courtroom I was about to shoot my one second but my mother wouldn't give me my cam and by time she gave in I could no longer do it.
The guy who made the original video has released an app which allows you to film a video, splice it into one second clips, and then colaborate them on a weekly, monthly, or yearly basis.

Started doing this today, excited to see how it comes out.

 Bump

I'm on day 154!!!! It's funny that the momentum of the footage actually is in-sync with the pace of my life during certain time periods. For instance, past month or so I've been out and about alot, on the footage it looks very disorienting and fast paced.

Interesting idea. Thanks for sharing it. Personally I hate taking photos when I'm fully engaged in something because it fucks with the flow of everything (all right hold up let me stop what I'm doing, take out my camera and video what I'm doing....just for the sake of video'ing what I'm doing). Being in "the game" for years has lead me to want to record less and less, but that doesn't mean taking photos and shooting video of your life doesn't have its merits.

edit:  also, watching 1 second is too damn short. It's obnoxious as fuck to watch. Maybe for yourself it's ok because when you see 1 second of your own life  you can recall the full situation/emotions/etc.., but for a stranger I have no idea really what the true feeling of the situation is in 1 second. Maybe 5 seconds or something I don't know. All these 1-second videos of other people are whack to watch imo.
