Film director and producer Kyle Ruddick is raising funds to complete his recent – and most ambitious project – One Day on Earth, a motion picture shot by thousands of filmmakers in every country in the world on one day: October 10, 2010 (10.10.10). This trailer alone includes footage from 90 individuals and organisations, and is a small glimpse at the impressive scale and beautiful shots of the final film.
With the aim of documenting and recording the human experience over a 24-hour period, One Day on Earth creates a sort of global mosaic, and aims to contribute to what Ruddick hopes will be the largest participatory media event in history.
‘One Day on Earth is more than a single day event, but a vehicle to spread awareness. It is a platform for valuable global communication and real social initiative. It is an archive of media from the world’s most globally conscious citizens. It is the step towards global understanding, global empathy and global change,’ says Ruddick.
Head to the project’s fundraising site to learn more about how the whole thing got started.
