A Minute Every Day: SOLT

Since I first caught a viewing of the movie, Chef, I’ve been playing with my iPhone is a new way, inspired by the young boy in the movie and then I found Cesar Kuriyama the source,  in a  TED talk.  with his piece here vimeo.com/65154352.

When we got back from Israel at the end of the summer, I started my version of short daily bursts of personal documentation.

I found a second a day too limiting and moved to more, closer to a  minute almost every day. Of course I was using up lots of space on my phone and some days I was using my regular camcorder.  I had to get organized and started downloading the moments to my eternal hard drive and then I decided  to bring my collection into Final Cut and start playing after I had the first 2 1/2 months, from late August- Halloween.  I played with adding music, adding titles and finally let each moment stand for itself: a small snippet of each day of my life.

What do you think?  Is there anything of interest here, beyond a viewing of me and etc….?

I’m up too early but it was fun to get this to Slice of Life at Two Writing Teachers early #4 and start catching up there with my Slicer community.  Check it out here

  1. wow! That is really cool! I particularly liked when you changed up where the camera was, giving a different perspective of your day, and when you caught pieces of conversation 🙂

    • Thanks for checking out my piece so carefully. I was just reading your post at the same time and tried to leave a comment. I’m not sure it went through but I applaud your multitasking last week. Just Halloween in my classroom was enough for me to handle. 🙂

  2. What a cool document you have created for your family! I treasure every word of every journal my grandmother left us. How lucky your people are to have this! I like the format. 🙂

  3. Two things that struck me: the balance you have created between work that you love and family and friends who you love. That’s a gift, my friend! And two – we haven’t celebrated your birthday yet – let’s make plans!

  4. Even though I don’t know everyone, I’ve read enough of your posts to be able to follow the family celebrations, Bonnie, & love that you captured some. Interspersed with special moments with Tuvia, & your work & nature makes a balance that’s lovely to see. I too like that you included some words once in a while, takes us right there! What a wonderful idea.

  5. Don’t you just smile as you relive each of these captured moments? I know I did, and they weren’t even my moments. I think this is a treasure for you and your family. Of course, they may start to run when they see you coming, but I think they know what joy you will produce. You are a treasure! Loved it!
