New iPhone App Project Could Replace the Tribute Video

December 9, 2012

A few weeks ago I told you about the website Recollect that could be the future of the eulogy, now I bring you information about an iPhone app that is close to reaching it’s fundraising goal on Kickstarter and could be the replacement for tribute/memorial videos.

With 1 Second Everyday, users can compile videos from their phone’s camera roll, other video apps, or capture new clips within the app and then use the edit tools to trim each down to one second. Each clip gets timestamped and assigned to a day on a calendar, so you can easily search for a clip from a specific date, or else watch all your videos in chronological order.

The app is the brainchild of Cesar Kuriyama who says:

On the day I turned 30 years old, I started recording 1 second every day for the rest of my life… and I think you should too.  When I turn 40, I’ll have a 1-hour video that encapsulates my 30s.  If I live to see 80 years of age, I’ll have a 5-hour video that summarizes 50 years of my life.

Cesar gave a TED talk this year about his experience in recording his 30’s where he said the project helped him to get through the tough days, appreciate the good days and prevent all his days from blurring together.

When I think about memorial/tribute videos and how special they are to families, I can’t help but think that they would find even more value in reliving hours of their loved one’s life through video of one second a day for a number of years.

What do you think: Could this app be something else that could be fuzed into the funeral service and possibly provide greater value to the family because it was created by their loved one?

For more on how the app works and the inspiration behind it, check out the video below.
