This is a great opportunity to play on the eventual soundtrack of our series.
One Day On Earth has a history of incorporating music recorded on the day of our filming events into our final films. Please watch the samples and read the directions below to figure out how to participate in this unique collaboration. Here is some important information on how to participate:
- People in all 11 cities will be participating. If you can record in a recognizable place, it will enhance the visual effect of the edit (not required).
- Professional video equipment is not required. We suggest focusing on getting good audio levels as this is about the music first!
- If you can, record instruments separately.
- Use headphones! We don't want to hear your guide tracks ;-)
- Upload your video submissions of your best takes after the shoot date. Make sure you tag your video as "Music"
- We will post all stems to Soundcloud so the mash-up is open to all who participate with credit.

1. Who are you and what is your profession?
My name is Danielle Bernstein. I am a filmmaker and run Clear Films Productions and Gallery L1 in Atlanta, GA.
2. Can you tell us a little about your background and upbringing?
I grew up in Atlanta, GA. Spent a lot of time outside and was lucky enough to travel when I was younger. I think the exposure to new people and places influences my work today. My parents also collected photography so I grew up around a lot of art. My high school had a great arts program and I ended up studying at the School of the Museum of Fine Art.
3. What inspired you to become a filmmaker?
My progression toward film was very organic. I entered The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston with a photography portfolio, fell in love with sculpture, was totally inspired and changed by physical process and I spent most of my time in the casting studio trying to capture the space in between objects.
I started collaborating with long-time friend Anne Slick on installations and took a 16mm class and was hooked. I switched gears and ended with a thesis project in Documentary Film.
Ultimately, the collaboration of vision and talent is what still attracts me to film. It constantly pushed me to learn and expand my perspectives.
4. Who or what do you most admire?
Individuals and hard workers from any walk of life.
5. What do you love about Atlanta?
I like the diversity and the different neighborhoods, the pace of life and the green space.
6. What do you fear most for Atlanta?
I fear that Atlanta will eventually run out of water and that our public eduction system will completely fall apart.
7. What do you hope for Atlanta in the next 20 years?
That it invests in public transportation, more community building and better education.

What a great brainstorming session we had at Hypepotamus yesterday with some of Atlanta's great innovators. We are grateful for the opportunity to have an open forum to discuss potential partnerships and cannot begin to express how valuable and focused their insight and resources were to our team. We especially appreciate their willingness to reach out to those who can contribute and/or benefit from the end result of this project.
On April 26th, 2014 - Thousands of filmmakers in cities across the country will participate in an historic day of media creation. Together we will create a document that investigates our American Cities - what we love about them; what we need to fix about them; and how we can come together to create a better metropolitan future.
