Alright, that is truly awful, so I'll keep working on the lyrics, if you hang around with our uploader...

One Day in Denver

Wow, Wow and of course, WOW!

Wow?! Are we really on the other side of April 26th? These last couple of months have been filled with thoughts of how Denver could be captured and the appreciation of this incredible process. It turns out, that being here on the other side of the event day feels much the same in that I am STILL aflutter with thoughts of our community, but now they are tempered by an overwhelming desire to see what you have gone out and recorded for the ages! Thank you for being a part of this event not only in preparation and yesterday, but as we move forward and share with the greater community what has occurred. HOORAY FOR DENVER!

Play on our Soundtrack!

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.

Air Ball Creative: Profile Spotlights

Breathless from Air Ball Creative on Vimeo.

One Day in Denver has been out exploring the town, learning about incredible organizations working magic around the city, and meeting people right here on our site and Facebook page who are readying to share with all of you their thoughts and passions.  Not only is the groundswell of interest building, but so is the excitement for what will occur here on April 26th.

My name is Kristin, and I am your local Denver producer working with One Day on Earth to help you bring your thoughts for the future of our city, to the people of Denver.

And, when I think of Denver, it is hard not to think of its beauty.  Our ambassadors, Thaddeus Anderson and Woody Roseland at Air Ball Creative have been garnering attention all over town (and beyond) for their work capturing Denver in a manner that harnesses the power of film.  Take a few minutes to immerse in their video and welcome them to the Project.  You can visit Air Ball Creative at their website:

1. Who are you and what is your profession?
At the core, we’re an idea company. We use any combination of film, poetry, organic sounds and music to immerse the audience in said idea.
2. Can you tell us a little about your background and upbringing?
As kids, we both had rich imaginations but didn’t grow up in environments that allowed us to express that. Our ability to be creative was limited until we started our company. Air Ball has given us an incredible canvas to foster our imagination.
3. What inspired you to become a filmmaker?
In short, the ability to let creativity run wild. There are no rules in getting an audience to hop on board with an idea. 
4. Who or what do you most admire?
Great communicators. A great thought, company, organization, etc, is only recognized as great if it is communicated well. 
5. What do you love about Denver?
The people. The mountains and sunshine are what bring people to Denver, but the people are what make people fall in love with it.
6. What do you fear most for Denver?
7. What do you hope for Denver in the next 20 years?
Denver has flown under the radar for most of it’s existence. Moving forward, I’d love to see the Queen City of the Plains gain recognition for all it’s bringing to the table.

One Day in Denver

One of the many things about which we are thankful over here at One Day in Denver is the involvement of Tony Shawcross as an advisor to the project. He is the Executive Director of the OPEN MEDIA FOUNDATION which works to create opportunity for everyone to represent their own voice in the media conversation. As our own event mission echoes this thinking, it's simply a perfect match.

Please join us over at Open Media Foundation THIS Friday, April 4 beginning at 6:30 p.m. to immerse in our One Day on Earth Project, ask questions and join the community examining the future of our city! The Adam Bodine Trio will be playing and I think there will even be free beer (but you didn't hear that here)!

RSVP via Facebook Event
