One Day in San Francisco

One More Week

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. 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."

-Backyard Films Sunday 5-10pm in Bernal Heights. I mentioned this in a previous post. Definitely worth checking out if you've never been. Here's the info and to RSVP.

Recent articles & op-ed pieces I came across and found really interesting:

Things we'd love for participants to capture footage of:

-A child being born
-A wedding
- 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):
