It’s been a busy week working in Leigh, Lancashire and then off to Holt, Norfolk and tomorrow we head off to the Cambridge Folk Festival for three days hard graft 🙂
Saturday 24th July saw us taking part in the ‘Hot on the Streets’ Festival in Leigh Civic Square. A great little event which we have taken part in for many years. But this year was very special being that the 24th July was also ‘A Life in a Day’ day! Oh yes!
ONE WORLD. 24 HOURS. 6 BILLION PERSPECTIVES!
A life in a day is an historic global experiment to create a user-generated feature film, shot in a single day….on the 24th July 2010 for 24 hours. The film will be produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Kevin Macdonald and will be premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
So I’ve made my Day in a Life video and submitted the raw, unedited HD footage to the Life in a Day website….so it’s just a matter of keeping my fingers crossed and hoping it gets accepted….but as the old saying goes ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it’ so if even a few minutes or seconds gets shown I’ll be made-up with that.
I think it’s a really brilliant idea and totally in-line with our way of thinking and democratising the arts……I don’t have a picture of Che Guevara on my computer desktop for nothing you know 😉
Come the revolution comrades!
