Join Thousands of People Around the World and Film a Day in Your Life for “One Day on Earth” Film 12-12-12

In three days (12-12-12), thousands of people from all over the world will be simultaneously filming a day in their life in the third installment of the global film event One Day on Earth. The general public is invited to participate in this unique and extraordinary event in which your footage will be part of an archive for future generations.

“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,” states the project organizers on www.onedayonearth.org. “One Day on Earth is a community that not only watches, but participates.”

To participate, create an account on the One Day on Earth website and read the film guidelines. Previous videos may be viewed online through a unique interactive geo-tagging archive, and there are also Educator Toolkits available to support classroom assignments and initiatives.

One Day on Earth started in September of 2008 “with the goal of creating a unique worldwide media event where thousands of participants would simultaneously film over a 24-hour period.”

Prompted by interest from the United Nations and the international educational community, the event was a huge success with more than 3,000 hours of footage filmed on October 10, 2010 (10-10-10) that was developed into a feature film.

In 2011, project organizers held their second media event on 11-11-11 and granted more than 1,000 cameras world wide to ensure participation from some the most difficult to document regions. Organizers also founded the One Day on Earth Foundation 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation, with the mission “to build, maintain, and support a global community of media creators in partnership with NGOs, media producers, and educators in order to create media that educates, informs, and inspires social change towards a more sustainable planet.”
