Life In A Day

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 2, 2010, 4:19 AM
I'm not sure how many of you have heard or participated in the Life In A Day project, but it was an opportunity satanstolemytedibear and me couldn't miss.
For those unfamiliar with it, in short: it's a historic global experiment that will integrate footage shot by thousands of people worldwide into a feature length documentary, portraying a single day on Earth and what it means to have been alive on July 24th 2010.

While we submitted raw footage for the project, I later edited it into a more interesting video.

The video itself is a weird mixture between trying to live the day and simultaneously record it, and since I'm by no means experienced filmmaker, it's FAR from perfect. I can promise it will be interesting but also technically suckish and very shaky and floaty - we recorded it while literally running trying to stick to schedule. There was no script, no repeated scenes, no second chances. Try to look beyond that.

It's 20 minutes long (it's hard to fit 24 hours into less), so don't watch it unless you have time - it's pointless to just click through it. Also, please read the description before watching, it will explain a lot.

(Spoken language is Croatian, but there is little of it and you'll be able to follow without understanding it. Everything is pretty self-explanatory.)

Finally, if you participated, post the link to your video in comments. I'd really like to see what you shot.

I really enjoyed the video, you folks really have a lovely are to scatter about in.
I really would love visiting there.

What was the camera used and the editing program? Crisp clear imagery is fabulous?

Thanks and hope you two had a great summer so far, say hi Marina!

hey, come and visit by all means! we have about a million visitors per year (town has only 40000 people :D) so you'd be welcome!

we shot everything with our olympus e-p2. editing was in premiere, post in colorfinesse. i'm glad you like the quality because vimeo overcompressed the video and it looks like... well it doesn't look as good as original high quality version. i'm sorry about that but i don't know where to host it in higher quality without cutting it.

hope you're having fun as well!

It looks so nice to be walking the tight streets and the way the buildings are built such time ago, it just seems so nostalgic to go there and have a trip or two and jump in the water.

Thanks for the positive outlook, and once again great film, Marina did a great job editing, very professional like.

All the best!
