Hi Guys! Francis (@francis_dierick) and me (@blacktar) are both independent iPhone developers living in Cologne, Germany and we're working on an exciting summer project together. We're building an app that makes shooting and sharing good and interesting videos fun and easy by changing the format to one second shots! Less is more.

Yes, it may sound ridiculous at first, but have a look at Kevin Kelly's vacation video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjD995hJKOM) to see the true power of one second shots. It's amazing how much information, how much more salient the memories captured are! Now, Kelly is an excellent photographer with a great camera - but we want to enable everybody with an iPhone to make these kinds of vids in a snap!

Our campaign is over at http://www.indiegogo.com/onesec and we have about 20 days left to go. We just need a little bit of money to be able to focus 100% on building this amazing app and sustain our selves at a minimum for a couple of months. In return, you'll get soem awesome perks and the chance to help some decent folks succeed.

If we make more than our goal, we'll also consider making an Android version! We <3 Android too.
