Hello D-Worders! I want to introduce the D-Word community to an exciting participatory documentary event I am helping to produce. One Day On Earth is an online community of photographers, filmmakers, students, and inspired individuals all teaming up with the goal of creating a more accurate picture of life on this planet.

On October 10th, 2010 (10.10.10), thousands of people from every nation around the world will film their perspective and contribute their voice to the largest participatory media event in history; the event will result in a feature documentary and online video archive that will showcase the diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that can occur in one day on earth.

We would love to include the talents and perspectives of the D-Word community in our world document. Learn more about One Day on Earth and sign up to participate at:http://www.onedayonearth.org.

Very ambitious plan, Gina. Asking 50,000 participants to film what inspires them most is going to generate enough footage to last an aeon! How do you intend to keep focus and create a thread to hold it all together?

On Tuesday, there will be a historically important memorial service that I will be covering for a feature documentary.

I am looking for shooters who have EX-1/3s or similar cameras to shoot with me from about 8:30 AM until about 1 PM.

Volunteers are truly appreciated. I can offer up to $50 for each camera person as a gratuity. Plus credit as "additional camera" when the film is completed.

I can tell you more about the sad, and yet exciting business of this day, when you tell me about your availability.

Thank you.

FIXER needed for SOUTH AMERICAN DOCUMENTARY

The Guarani Project is looking for a fixer/translator!

We are looking for a fixer/translator to join our team for a 5-6 week shoot from late July to early September in South America.

Think you’re up for the job, or know someone who is?

You must be FLUENT in Spanish, Portuguese AND English, and be based in Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay or Uruguay.

The job will be very hard work but amazing fun- think, travelling all night, one hour sleep and then interviewing the environment minister of Paraguay before heading off to interview displaced indigenous people and then spending the evening translating it all and discussing/planning the next day.

We are not so interested in finding the person with the most impressive CV but rather looking for someone who will fit the dynamic of the team- young, creative, intelligent and ambitious!

If you think you can do it, send an email to Annabel@theguaraniproject.com explaining you’d be good for the role.

We look forward to hearing from you!

The Guarani Team

Hi All,

Just a post to let you know about The NOMAD Project, an exhibition to premiere at the 2010 debut of Access & PARADOX, taking place the 21-24 of October 2010 in Paris, France.

The NOMAD Project will be an exhibition of short films directed and/or produced by independent filmmakers utilizing innovative and explorative ways of telling a story. The aim of the exhibition is to share with the contemporary art audience unique ways in which filmmakers are adapting to the stage of the global economy as well as shifts in technology. The films can be narrative, documentary or experimental, and should relate to PARADOX’s unofficial theme “Nostalgia for Nature”.

The call for projects opens today, July 1, 2010, and submissions will be accepted through August 31, 2010. For The NOMAD Project application and guidelines please visit www.nomadfilms.net, or contact Directors Ari Allansson (ari@nomadfilms.net) or Sarah Schutzki (sarah@nomadfilms.net).

About NOMAD Films
NOMAD Films was created in an effort to expose innovative and experimental forms of filmmaking, taking into account the financial limitations within the independent industry as well as continuously evolving filmmaking technology. The goal of the exhibition(s) is to create additional distribution outlets within the arts. Distribution models for low-budget independent films are not always substantial; NOMAD Films brings to light a selection of the many projects that have had little exposure otherwise.

About PARADOX
PARADOX is an International Contemporary Art Fair making its debut in October 2010 in Paris, France. Partnering with Access, Access & PARADOX will focus on the exhibition and promotion of new, emerging artists working in contemporary art. Although the fair will debut in 2010 in Paris, there are plans for future editions to take place throughout Europe and the Americas as well.
