Greetings, fellow citizens of Earth! Thirteen months ago, on 10.10.10, Vimeans from all over the world participated in the massive One Day on Earth project. It was a huge success that brought together people from every single country, creating an archive of over 3000 hours of video. We're doing it again this year, on 11.11.11, and we're encouraging the entire Vimeo Community to participate! That means you!
The goal of One Day on Earth is to capture all aspects of life here on our Pale Blue Dot, from love and beauty to sadness and tragedy. Last year, filmmakers shot a whole range of subjects: a daughter curling her mothers hair, a family's apple-picking adventure, the remote corners of tropical locations, everyday life in the busiest cities, amongst many, many diverse stories. This year the global story is only missing your voice!
Footage shot this year will be compiled, archived, and made available to filmmakers, allowing anyone to create their own interpretation of life on Earth. Ultimately, One Day on Earth will have its own feature length film (you can watch the trailer here) that will premiere down the road. If you need a little inspiration, check out Enrico's submission entitled Human Nature, which deals with one aspect of our future here on Earth.
Thanks to One Day on Earth's partnership with the United Nations, the feature film created from last year's submissions is set to premiere around the world in late February 2012, more info here. Select footage from this year's project will also be shown at the February premiere.
Sign up on the One Day on Earth site and pick a cause or group to participate in. If you already have a Vimeo account it will automatically get linked up when you upload your footage. So get ready to record this Friday, all you need is a camera (with fresh batteries!) and your imagination. Go forth and capture!+ More from the Staff Blog Archive
