Life in a Day

My head is reeling.

Namely cos I just discovered this incredible “global social history experiment”: “Life in a Day”.

The concept is this:

– on July 24th, anybody and everybody on Planet Earth is invited to film their day;

– the filmmakers (did I mention it’s produced by Ridley Scott, y’all?!) will then cut together a documentary titled…you guessed it…let’s move along then;

– the film will then be screened at Sundance Film Festival in 2011.

This boggles my brain in so many ways, but I’ll just nut it down to a couple here, shall I?

1. How the heck are they gonna deal with THOUSANDS of people’s footage in one doco?

2. If I was gonna opt in, what on earth would I film?

3. Oh, hang on: on July 24th 2010, at around 3.30 in the afternoon, I will be reuniting with my best friend in the world, Frankie – after not having seen her for THREE YEARS – and what’s more, we, with seven children in total between us, will be:

a) child-free; and

b) in New York City.

    I love the video and the idea of sharing/ supporting each other to chase your dreams. I feel a bit left out because I dont have kids, I think everything you say is pretty much the same for non parents….

      Don’t feel left out, you have a womb, I have a womb, there’s WOMB FOR ALL! Heehee!

      Yeah, certainly don’t want to be the ‘exclusive elitist club of excessive achievements in snottiness’ or anything, but I guess I just feel like there’s a billion or so resources out there on the general ‘follow your passion’ thang, whereas there’s not a whole lot from what I can see, which focuses in on the issues of doing this when you’ve got kiddly-winks climbing your nerves.

      I’m glad it still connects with you – don’t feel left out, just come on in and join the party! x
