Well I’m not sure we are going to have time to whip out the video camera and get involved in this one, but today being 12.12.12 see’s the filming of the final installment of the ‘One Day on Earth’ trilogy.
I must admit i didn’t know too much about this event but having watched the little clip and read the information at http://www.onedayonearth.org/ I’m sure you will agree this is a fantastic way to document the times we are living in from so many different perspectives.
On December 12th, 12.12.12, across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and other inspired citizens will record the human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their voice to the third annual global day of media creation called One Day on Earth. Together, we will create a shared archive and a film.
Founded in 2008, One Day on Earth’s first media creation event occurred on 10.10.10. and the second on 11.11.11. The 10.10.10 collaboration was the first ever simultaneous filming event occurring in every country of the world. One Day on Earth collaborations create a unique geo-tagged video archive as well as an annual feature film.
Together, we are showcasing the amazing diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that occurs in one day. We invite you to join our international community of thousands of filmmakers, hundreds of schools, and dozens of non-profits, and contribute to this unique global mosaic. One Day on Earth is a community that not only watches, but participates.
