During Sunday the 10th of October 2010, I participated in a global project to document our world on that day. Called "One Day On Earth", it was intended to feature images of our world from each individual film maker's perspective, be they amateur or professional.
My contribution to this project was to film a short series of images showcasing things that made my home "unique" in the world on that day. This short film is my final representation of the filming work I undertook on 10.10.10.

This short film documents my journey to participate in the global premiere of the film "One Day on Earth" in Melbourne, Australia.
I was first contacted by One Day on Earth, back in August 2009. I had various plans for what to film for the project on 10.10.10, including a peice themed on energy, then I switched to water, and then after becoming involved with Project Horus in Adelaide, I had hoped to obtain footage from "near space" to contribute to the project. The Project Horus flight ended up being cancelled due to the weather (and an unfortunate incident on the test flight the day before - see vimeo.com/16241165). In the end, I went out with the goal of simply documenting things that made my city and home unique. My finished film and collected footage can be seen here: vimeo.com/channels/141335
Considering the huge number of people contributing to the project, I never considered that I would ever actually get any images I collected into the final film. However, I was to be surprised about 6 months ago when I was told that something of mine had been included.
This was then the catalyst for what you now see here. I wanted to see what had been used, no matter how short. As there was no premiere screening being held in my home city, I hit upon a plan to drive to the nearest location that was participating. 735km later, I arrived in Melbourne, and sat in Federation Square with other hardy souls (considering the rain and thunderstorms that hit 30 minutes before it was due to start) and participated in the global premiere of this amazing film project.
So, here is the conclusion of my first "One Day on Earth 10.10.10" journey. As the project is continuing for 11.11.11 and later this year 12.12.12, I'm sure more fun is on the horizon!

This is filmed in and around the National War Memorial, South Australia, on North Terrace in Adelaide. It captures the ceremony conducted by the Returned & Services League (RSL) of South Australia to commemorate the Armistice of World War One, which occured 93 years before at 11.00am, on the 11th of November 1918.
This was filmed for the One Day On Earth 11.11.11 project. (onedayonearth.org/)

The Big Rocking Horse - Gumeracha, Adelaide Hills
The premise for my filming during the One Day On Earth project was to present locations from my home city where we have things that are "just a little bit unique". The Big Rocking Horse, standing 60 feet tall certainly qualifies, and is typical of over 100 other "big" things scattered around Australia. You can in fact plan your road trip holidays around visiting these uniquely Australian icons, including others such as "The Giant Lobster", "The Big Bannana", "The Big Pineapple" etc etc.
