She Filmed Herself One Second A Day For A Year, The Footage Gave Us Shivers

"Just because it isn't happening here doesn't mean it isn't happening."

Time-lapse videos can be a fun way to capture and preserve your memories. But they can also be an open window to the tragic world we live in.


"Most Shocking Second A Day" is a PSA created by a British creative agency Don't Panic for Save the Children organization. Its goal is to draw attention to the ongoing violence in Syria.

"Our solution was to tell a story that would bring the realities of Syria home, and to do it we combined the one-second-a-day and photo time-lapse formats to create a new way of showing an ordinary girl's world falling apart in just a year," Don't Panic says.

The video shows a British girl filming a one second video of her life. In her footage we can see messages of the escalating conflict pop up in the news, but she stays oblivious. Then bombs start falling. The video ends with a thought-provoking sentence, "Just because it isn't happening here doesn't mean it isn't happening."
