Done is Better than Perfect.

After 11 months of footage, 11 months of procrastination, and two days of editing, it's finished! My one second video project is done! I tried to take at least one second of video each day for one year after watching a similar project back in May of 2013. To be clear I had no video editing experience before deciding to do this, but that wasn't going to stop me! I really wanted to be able to edit the videos for color correction etc, but I just don't have those skills yet. I worked a bit on the underwater footage, but wanting things to be perfect was stopping me from even starting.  It was time to just get it done!

I bent the rules a little to suit my needs. Not every day is shown, and many clips get more than one second. Also, I did complete the whole year but I let the video end on my last day in Thailand, before coming back to the states.

I'm so excited for this to be finished! After so many weird looks, and confusion about "Are you taking video?", I'm pleased to show a final product.

This video Takes place from May 2013 to March 2014 in Korea, Japan, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Thailand. Enjoy!
