11.11.11 – Second One Day on Earth global filming day – Join the project!
Inspired Users and Media creators worldwide are invited to take part in the 11.11.11 event ONE DAY ON EARTH . After the Arab spring and first improvements in part of the Arab countries in terms of freedom of expression, it is expected that even more Arab citizen would participate actively than one year ago for 10.10.10.
Footage will be shot in every country on the planet on a single day!! On November 11th, 11.11.11, across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and other inspired citizens will record the human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their voice to the second annual global day of media creation called “One Day on Earth”.
“One Day on Earth” began in September 2008 as a new media project to create a unique video time capsule, global online community, a unique geo-tagged video archive as well as an upcoming feature-length film — all from participant footage captured during the 24-hour period of 10th October 2010 (10/10/10). Founder/Director Kyle Ruddick and Co-founder/Executive Producer Brandon Litman established the project as a shared archive, allowing all participants to use and edit the footage to show their interpretation of the world. One Day on Earth also works closely with dozens of non-profit and non-governmental organizations to document important social issues, holding annual global collaborations.
The global screening
The United Nations, in collaboration with the “One Day on Earth” online community, is preparing for what will be the first ever global screening of the film that includes the above mentioned footage that was shot in every country on the planet on a single day. The movie, which bears the same title as the organization, One Day on Earth, will be screened in every country of the world on the same day in late February 2012.
Working closely with the United Nations global network of country offices, the producers plan to screen the film in both theatres and venues of cultural and historic significance.
One Day on Earth produced the film in partnership with the United Nations, more than 60 non-profit organizations and a growing online community of over 19,000 filmmakers, both experienced and novice. On 10 October 2010 (10/10/10), the One Day on Earth community, including over 95 United Nations country offices, filmed in every country of the world, capturing both the joys and the struggles of everyday life. The film pulls from the resulting 3,000 hours of footage, which is now a shared-for-use archive for all those that participated.
“While the film identifies the common threads that connect us all, it also celebrates the diversity that is a part of our unique individual nature,” says Kyle Ruddick, Founder and Director of One Day on Earth. “The film contains a message of hope, but also a strong call to action for positive change on issues that face both the global and local communities.”
In an effort to increase the inclusiveness of the project, hundreds of short films that will result from the second One Day on Earth global filming day, scheduled for 11 November (11/11/11), will also be displayed at the global screening and event.
“It is an honour to be the first film screened at this magnitude,” said Brandon Litman, Co-founder and Executive Producer of One Day on Earth. “As a grassroots project pitched to the United Nations a year and a half ago, this truly shows how an idea can grow into a global experience.”
