Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite.
By extending the long take to a cinematic extreme and focusing it on the transportation industry, we will tell the story of the modern world in a new way. The day-in-the-life approach makes proximate individuals most embedded in the mechanisms of globalization and makes visible the intimate details of their daily experiences.
We’re looking for filmmakers http://globallives.org/en/lives-in-transit/
The production of Lives in Transit will bring together nearly 100 accomplished filmmakers and media artists to undertake a globally-collaborative work of art that raises questions about the relationship of human connection and disconnection, similarity and difference, distance and proximity.
For bios of previous collaborators, see: http://globallives.org/bios/
"'Lives in Transit' represents the next phase in the development of a scalable video library of the human condition. The series will stay true to the tenet of unfiltered access, but it will be the first time a theme will juxtapose individuals with parallel circumstances, namely occupation, in order to highlight cross-cultural differences and similarities." – David Evan Harris
