One Day on Earth will include the participation of documentary filmmakers, students and inspired citizens recording a human experience in EVERY country in the world during the 24 hour period of October 10th, 2010.
“We currently have participants in over 150+ countries. Our goal is to create platform for the global community to gain a greater understanding of the common threads that connect us and also the differences that make us all unique.
“There are also big issues being addressed and shared, which will hopefully raise awareness to things that don’t make headlines. 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,” says Herbert Castro one of the organizers.
This project has the support of non-profit foundations and citizens in every corner of the globe; all looking to share their unique perspective. The first step in getting involved would be to “sign up” at www.onedayonearth.org.
“As our shoot date approaches, we will be providing instructions on how to submit your videos. We will be downloading all submissions and forming an extensive library of international footage. We will be using only that library of footage to edit a 120 minute documentary to be released theatrically.”
