One Day On Earth – a call to use your HDSLR to help document the world

by planetmitch1 Comment

UPDATE: Since this is coming up in about a week, we thought we'd republish this story to remind people about this interesting project and so you can get ready. Here's an update from the sponsors:

A lot of exciting things have been happening since we last touched base:

* we have participants from EVERY country in the world, making our event a truly global initiative
* we announced our partnership with the United Nations
* we partnered with Vimeo to host our video content and to mobilize their membership to participate in our project
* in an effort to make One Day on Earth an event that inspires action towards a more sustainable planet, we have partnered with over 50 charitable organizations, including: WWF, Red Cross, Oxfam, Human Rights Watch,, Livestrong, and many others

(Original post ensues:) We've been asked to help promote an interesting project… it is called “One Day on Earth” and you might be able to have your HDSLR video in a feature documentary! Here's what they've asked to say: “On October 10th, 2010, thousands of people from every nation around the world will film their perspective and contribute their voice to one of the largest participatory media events in history. The event will result in a feature documentary and online video archive that will showcase the diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that can occur in one day on earth. Our immediate goal is to expand interest in the project; the more people we have involved, the more accurate and comprehensive a record of the planet we can create.”

You can learn more about One Day On Earth on our website:

“Across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and inspired citizens will record the human experience over a 24-hour period. By participating in this historic event, you will help capture the diversity of life and culture on this planet. Together we will create a document that is a gift to the world.

One Day on Earth is a documentary and new media project about the amazing diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that occurs in one 24-hour period on Earth. More than a film, One Day on Earth is a multi-platform participatory media project. The flagship of this project is a 120-minute documentary to be released theatrically. Through the One Day on Earth platform we will establish a community that not only watches, but participates.”
