Read the preface here.
My name is Richard Reilly. I have been doing the Everyday Project for nearly a decade. My goal is to never stop and have my final project be played at my funeral. I also plan on maintaining a project for each of my children starting from their birth. My project consistently is in the Top Twelve Longest Everyday Projects on Youtube (The full list is here).
I've always encouraged people to start this project regardless of their age. Seeing yourself change and age is a terrifying and beautiful process. The longer your project gets, the more attached you get to it. I've already encouraged three friends and family members to start their own projects. But I've come to realize that a lot of people start their project and give up all too soon because they don't know the basics of video editing or because they cannot remember to take the photo every single day.
That is why I am here today. I have all this random knowledge about this oddly specific hobby. I want to share it with people who are serious about making this project their own. From how to reminds yourself to take a picture everyday to aligning the eyes of each picture in the video so it doesn't jump around so much, this project is a unique one. I want to help you join the ranks of the hundreds who are already doing this project.
The booklet itself will likely be about 50 pages on an e-reader. It's short enough to be a quick read but long enough to be worth the investment. Each backer ($3) will basically be buying me a coffee as I write and edit the booklet over the next two months.
Risks and challenges
I am employed full-time. Writing this booklet is something I've been wanting to do for quite some time. It will have it take place during the evenings and weekends. That's why it will take some time. However, I've been writing and editing essays, short stories, and novels for more than a decade, so this shouldn't be a problem.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
