On 11/11/11 – Press Record!
7 Days, 13 Hours, 49 Minutes and 1 Second
For 24 hours in the 11th November 2011 – the world will come together in a way that has never before. AnyONE in the world who has access to a film, video, still, web camera or a sound recording device, will be asked to capture their lives and the world around them. This is a project that brings people together as ONE.
The 11 Steps to Participation!
Some of you have been asking about the actual process of participating, so to help you out we’ve created a handy information page with 11 simple steps to aid you in your 11 Eleven journey!
We’re super excited to capture the day with you on 11.11.11
To make the process as easy as possible, we have created 11 steps for you to follow:
1. Register at www.11elevenproject.com
2. Look at the 11 topics and find which one’s resonate with you – and just to remind you, the topics are: water; faith; love; play; courage; routine; heartbreak; darkness; make a wish; beauty and beginnings. These topics are meant to inspire you…. so let your creative juices run free! They’re completely open to your interpretation…
3. Make sure the day before, all your batteries are charged on your equipment and that you’re ready to go…..always better to have a plan and be organised!
4. If you are planning on recording people, make sure you have their permission. We will provide you with “release forms” which are permission slips asking people if it’s ok that you use their image and sound…. this is an important legal step which is necessary for you to participate…. It’s just a measure to make sure that everyone who participates in comfortable being in the 11Eleven Project. Now in certain circumstances you don’t need permission – so when you fill in the form, if you tell us why you did not get permission, we may be able to accept the material….
5. From midnight to midnight – that’s 24 hour period on 11/11/11 that we want you to record…. anything that gives us an insight into your world and your perspective…..what do you want us to know about your life on planet earth? What could you share with us that no one else knows?
***NOW REMEMBER*** – you can record as many films, sounds, songs and photographs as you would like – as long as it’s captured on 11/11/11 – you can also blog and tweet. The tag on the day is:
This #11ElevenLive tag is SUPER important – it’s the label that helps us find your wonderful creation.
6. Now that you’ve captured your work, what do you have to do? Well first things first – go and upload it in the usual places you would upload content….. Flickr for photos, Vimeo/Youtube/Youku for film, sound and music at SoundCloud and text at Twitter and WordPress – and add your work…..now remember once you’ve uploaded it – make sure you tag it – #11ElevenLive – put it in your title and tag it in descriptions…we just need to be able to find your work….so make sure you label it properly!
7. Now go to the website again ( www.11elevenproject.com ) and fill in your entry form. This will be available from 11/11/11 onwards. Click on “Submit” and fill in the instructions….and voilà – you have added your story to the global narrative.
8. All entries must be in by the 22nd November – so you have 11 days to record, upload and submit.
9. VERY VERY IMPORTANT – make sure you keep your original material, as it’s the best quality you have and we may want to use it – so make sure you keep it somewhere safe as we may be contacting you so that we can use it!
10. Make sure you also keep your signed release forms, as we will need those too!
