Have you heard about One Day on Earth? A bunch of filmmakers are going to document the story of the world on a single day — October 10, 2010. The homepage says, “On October 10, 2010 (10.10.10), across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and inspired citizens will record the human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their voice to the largest participatory media event in history.”
Well, you know I could not leave that alone. Humans aren’t the only beings on earth — there are also cats! And actually, cats are part of the human experience, at least for a lot of humans. So I figured that One Day on Earth would not be complete without documenting a day in one cat’s life. Namely mine. So I signed up. My human’s camera shoots HD, so she will be my cinematographer for the day.
To be honest, I am not sure what we are going to shoot, or how my human is going to pull this off — she actually has a wedding to attend in the middle of the day, which fortunately, is happening just a few blocks away from us. So she may sneak back home a couple of times during the reception to grab more footage. In fact, she feels a little guilty because she thinks she really should be shooting the wedding instead. I say FEH to that — do you realize how many weddings humans are probably going to shoot compared to how many cats? She needs to film me on 10-10-10!
After we shoot, all us filmmakers will have one month to put something together. I will keep you informed on how it goes. And hey, if you are feeling a bit ambitious, you can sign up to do it yourself!
