One second every day

When Cesar Kuriyama turned 30 he did what most 30 year olds don't: quit his job and started filming his life, for one second, every day.

The decision wasn't quite as sporadic as it sounds. Cesar planned his milestone a little harder than most, and saved a little harder, so he could spend the entire year work-free and focused on his project, travel and spending time with family and friends.

The idea stinks of whimsy but the footage is anything but - it's rich, funny, weird and surprisingly moving. After a minute you almost feel like you know the guy. Cesar plans to keep this up 'til he's 80, which will generate around four hours, or 50 years of life on film.
