On 10/10/10, the entire world is being documented as part of an ambitious project called One Day on Earth (www.onedayonearth.org). Through their website, filmmakers, students, teachers and everyday inspired citizens representing EVERY country in the world have all coming together to film life and culture on 10/10/10.
For all those interested in helping to create a global video time capsule, mark next Sunday, October 10th on your calendar.
This project, which started in 2008, promises to create an accessible global archive representing the beauty, triumphs, and tragedy that occur around the world during a 24 hour period. The United Nations, Red Cross, World Wildlife Fund, Oxfam and about 50 other non-profits around the world are all participating to ensure access to all areas.
While the archive will be viewable to all, those that participate in the project will share the footage for non-commercial purposes (with credit), allowing everyone to create their own edit of the world’s story on 10/10/10. The One Day on Earth team has promised to use the shared archive to create a feature film representing all countries.
This project is going to be a great tool for understanding the basic human needs, joys and struggles that unite us, to the unique cultural traditions that give us identity.
What part of life will you share?
