Monthly Challenge

For one month we are all going to take a one second video everyday. I thought this would be a fun challenge to do with my followers and help people to document more of their lives. At the end of the month you can create a short video that clips all the one second videos together. I’ll show you how to add music and make a fun video for the month.

As many of you know pictures and videos mean so much to me. I documented a lot when Justin was alive, but I still wish I documented more. I’m here to help remind you to take the videos and the pictures so you have more than enough to look back on. Pictures are what keeps our memories alive!

Download the 1 second Everyday app

The first thing you want to do is download the 1 second everyday. It’s a free app available for IOS and Android phones. The app is free to use, but they do offer a paid premium if you want more features. The paid premium offers backups, download higher quality, collaborations with friends, more editing tools, add music, and you can do more than one second clips.

How to use the app

Follow the instructions below to see how to use the 1 second everyday app. Remember the app is free and you can use the basic features without having to pay. Another important thing I want you to remember is that you do not have to record a video with the app. You can record a video on your phone and add it to your app later. I prefer recording a video on my phone because its easier to open and the quality is better.

Reminders and Tips

I wanted to share some reminders and tips before you start your one second everyday challenge. Remember to set an alarm on your phone to remind you to take your video everyday. This will help you so you don’t forget. If you forget to take a video one day don’t worry. Just add a video clip from another day to the current day.

Take pictures with the “LIVE” feature. You can add this for your video of the day because live pictures move like a video.

Look at this as a video diary and share what you want. It can be videos of your family, a yummy meal you made that day, or a fun activity you did. It’s a daily diary to remember you favorite moments of that month.
