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.
