Inspiration for THE ADVENTURE PROJECT:
LIFE IN A DAY
We are so excited about The Adventure Project, and can’t wait to see in live action all the springtime adventures you’ll be having soon!
For all of you participating in this project, we also thought we’d inspire your cinematic submissions by sharing with you another worldwide community video project called Life in a Day.
Here’s a brief description:
“On July 24, 2010, thousands of people around the world uploaded videos of their lives to YouTube to take part in Life in a Day, a historic cinematic experiment to create a documentary film about a single day on earth.” Director Kevin Macdonald then edited these submissions into a feature-length film (of the same name) that awed audiences at the Sundance, Berlin, and SXSW film festivals in 2011, and since has lit up silver screens all across the world.
Part documentary, part social experiment, and part artistic finesse, this project is immensely inspiring in that it creates a visual and sonic time capsule representative of the lives of people from all over the globe.
You can check out the entire film for free here.
We hope that Life in a Day inspires YOU as much as it has us, and that you decide to join us for installment #7 in the 10 x 10 Series:
Can you share an adventure in 30 seconds?
There’s spring sunshine streaming through the windows of Art House HQ and everyone is eager to go exploring. This week, we’re challenging ourselves to go on an adventure and document it in a video. It could be as simple as a walk around the neighborhood or as daring as you desire! The Adventure Project asks artists to shoot a 30-second video that captures an adventure and share it with us online. Upload your video to YouTube and send us the link (projects [at] arthousecoop [dot] com) — we’ll add each submission to our channel and exhibit the project online. Feeling adventurous? Then grab a camera and go!
Don’t forget to check out the VIDEO TUTORIALS tab on the project page, if you’re new to creating videos for the web.
