The folks behind the stunning One Day On Earth documentary have announced a new project called One Day In New Orleans and are looking for people to help participate in filming on April 26. Smack dab in the middle of Jazz Fest, there should be no shortage of great footage that should be available, but this project is seeking to do more than just thousands of versions of Phish's set at the Acura Stage. From the One Day in New Orleans website:
On April 26th, 2014 hundreds of filmmakers, non-profit organizations, and inspired citizens will document stories and investigate 10 questions for the future of New Orleans as part of a city-wide, participatory media-creation event. The resulting media will be showcased in an interactive geo-tagged archive and a TV series on the future of the American city. In addition, local media partners will showcase the most powerful and inspiring videos created during the one-day filmmaking event.
The 10 questions ask about a wide range of issues, including why people choose to live in New Orleans to where they see the city in 20 years to who is changing the Big Easy for the better. There should be no shortage of submissions and anyone interested in submitting footage should go to the One Day In New Orleans site to sign up and participate.
