A few sources of inspiration come to mind (aesthetically) when I think about how I want to go about filming on the 26th: Humans of New York, Wendy MacNaughton's Meanwhile in SF, and The Bold Italic's Chinatown Sartorialist. Curious to know how you'll approach your day.
Here's what's going down this weekend...
-A pageant called Mr. Hyphen tomorrow night at the Marines' Memorial Theater, hosted by Hyphen Magazine. Hyphen has been a great partner communicating what they'd like to capture on the 26th (in collaboration with CAAM - ranging from the new immigrant experience to talking with restaurant and hotel workers in Chinatown to art & activism at the Manilatown I-Hotel Center to the different options of transportation used by the local AAPI community.
-BFF.fm online radio interview on Sunday 2-3pm in which hosts Tiffany Yau and Victoire Poumadere will ask us questions about the One Day in SF project. Here's a write up about SF's "best new (underground) station."
Recent articles & op-ed pieces I came across and found really interesting:
Homeless GoPro Project (I've actually talked to Adam and the founders of the project and there are some ideas ruminating about collaborating on the 26th)
Things we'd love for participants to capture footage of:
-A child being born
- A birthday
- Live music being played or a live concert
- Footage from every neighborhood and of every major ethnic group in SF
- Arial or Drone footage
- High speed footage
- Cityscape time lapses (Pro tip: Karl the Fog loves to be filmed)
- Someone capturing interviews of all 10 questions all day
The Bay Area really isn't lacking activities already scheduled for 4/26. Here's further proof (much thanks to One Day in SF volunteers Lily Yu and Carly McCarthy for pooling some of these together):
SF Bicycle Coalition Orange Bicycle Tour (Dutch Kings Day)
SF International Film Festival (filmmaker & festival-goer One Day interviews @ the 2nd floor bar of the Sundance Kabuki Theater, 12:45p-4pm)
BAYCAT's free premiere of Endangered: A Healthy Bayview for All (Screening & Panel at the Roxie)
