The video was created by Cesar Kuriyama. Kuriyama left his job as an advertiser and decided to take a year off from the rat race in order to pursue his interests. At this time, he began recording one second from each day of his life, ultimately planning for the footage to culminate in a sort of heavily abridged biopic. He discussed his project with TED in a talk earlier this year.
