#SamsProject2015 – 365 Seconds

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/1a2/41140390/files/2015/01/img_1067.jpgAs some people may remember back in 2012 I created a project designed to force me to be more active by making my new years resolutions public, I appropriately called it #SamsProject2012. It worked really well and although I didn’t get to all of my resolutions it certainly proved successful. The central resolution was to take a photo every day and upload it to Instagram for my friends, family and followers to see. It was a lot of fun to do and I really enjoy looking back over the images from time to time.

Over the past few months I’ve been thinking about what I would do for a follow up and as apparently I’m entering my 30th year (ahhhhh the future) I figured 2015 would be an appropriate year to do something…but what?

Since 2012 one idea has been in the back of my mind, to record one second of video footage each day and publish a video at the end of the year. I’ve seen a few great examples by a few people who have done this so to try and make mine a little different I’m going to give it a theme “Walking Forward”. But what does that mean I hear you ask? Well dear reader it means this, each video will be taken from my point of view as I walk somewhere with the plan being that each second of footage will roughly match up in the final video.

To create the videos I am going to use my iPhone 6, the apps Hyperlapse, iMovie and YouTube Capture and I will upload each individual video to my new YouTube channel. Now how I capture and upload the footage may change as I’m not 100% convinced by the final quality but this will do for the time being.

Here is the first video:

So I hope you’ll follow along and look forward to the final video at the end of the year. I hope this will prove to be a worth while experiment, it certainly will be a fun record of where I have been.

Welcome to #SamsProject2015.
