Currently we are working on a documentary film about all this craziness and how it's affecting our minds and life in general. I just want to give back to the community and tell a story about (for some) though times.
Hey, wanna be a part of our global story? If yes, I need two things from you for the beginning:
Share any of your videos from your quarantine time. What is it that keeps you sane? exercise, painting (other art projects), dancing, cooking, reading, Netflix, playing with your animals, sleeping, have you participated in any pandemic social media challenges?
Record your thoughts (optionally video or just sound): your perspective on your life, on your art, and the world at this time. Are you depressed or happy, angry...? What's your perspective on how it's handled in the world. Record horizontally on your equipment (smartphone, tablet, computer)
Have you heard any jokes about isolation, quarantine, etc.?
Tell a joke about THIS time. #CoronaJokeChallange
Here is mine :) “my high-heels must think I'm dead” (you can say this one too:)
Please, send your video clip to email@example.com via google drive or any other cloud. (Email with subject "Documentary Film Covid")
We’d love to include your experience in this film. We want to see what you see. In this film we will be cutting together shots taken from our houses looking in/out at the world, to explore both the specificity and the universality of a day in life under quarantine. There is no right or wrong way to do this. The choice is yours. The views you capture may be unexpected. They may be expected. They may be staged or spontaneous.
ADDITIONALLY, please share with me, recorded by you videos (anything you recorded so far or what you will record) :
Hand wash video, any other social media pandemic challenge you participated.
Putting your mask
Say in your native language "THIS TOO SHALL PASS"
Panoramic video showing your surroundings
as well as something what you see around you or you were a part of the events:
Apartment complexes, homes, rural areas, suburbs
weddings, birthdays, graduations, etc.
Social distancing: people together, or apart, wearing masks
Work: our frontline workers in grocery stores, restaurants, factories that remain open, office buildings, retail

And many, many more,
We are looking for ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS WITH SOMETHING TO SAY to their time under lockdown, isolation.

Let them know. No compensation for participation due to zero-budget-production.
