VIRAL VIDEO: Dad films daughter for 14 years

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Apr 17, 2014

For 14 years, a Dutch filmmaker filmed his child each week until she reached the age of 14 on Oct. 28, 2013. The video is titled "Portrait of Lotte."

The newly-edited video (a previous version was posted last year) was posted April 10 on YouTube. Since then it has racked up more than seven million views.

The video is only four minutes and five seconds long but it is an extraordinary four-plus minutes.

Frans Hofmeester says that he felt that his daughter Lotte was changing at such a rapid pace that he felt the need to document the way she looked.

Lotte's brother Vince was born Nov. 23, 2002. His father also filmed him weekly until he was 10 years old.
