One Day on Earth

I heard about this project with too little time to participate in it myself but I am a huge fan. On 10/10/10, thousands of people took out their cameras and documented what was happening in their communities during the 24-hour period.

One Day on Earth, the organization behind this project, is now in the process of putting it together into a film and so far they have already cataloged and shared many of the thousands of hours of footage on their website.

To complete the project they are asking support through a Kickstarter Appeal and they are nearly at their goal of $25,000. Here’s more about their project from their website:

On October 10th, 2010 (10/10/10), thousands of inspired individuals, representing every nation of the world, filmed their perspective and contributed their voice to a collaborative global film project. We amassed over 3,000 hours of footage on the day. Many filmed topics of beauty and culture, while others exposed us to challenges, both global and personal. Founded in 2008, ONE DAY ON EARTH is an online community, a video time capsule, and a media creation platform. It explores our planet’s identity and challenges in an attempt to answer the question: Who are we?
