Clayton’s Corner: One Day on Earth

Posted on: April 27th, 2012 at 11:26 am by

October 10, 2010 (10/10/10) was one day on earth that produced a Guinness World Record collaborative project. It was reportedly the first ever simultaneous filming event that transpired in every country around the world. So they say. As a result, three thousand hours of footage were boiled down to a more manageable film called, ahem, One Day on Earth. “Together, we are showcasing the amazing diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that occurs in one day.”

Clayton Patterson captured the scene at the movie premiere, appropriately held at the United Nations on Earth Day last Sunday. Here’s a preview:

The crew (L-R): Jenner Furst (Co-Executive Producer), Brandon Litman (Executive Producer/Co-Founder), Tony Goldman (Executive Producer), Kyle Ruddick (Director/Founder), and Jessica Goldman Shrebnick (Executive Producer).

David Sugar designed and polished a rare crystal to make this plaque with an astronaut helmet. Inside is an image of earth from space, along with signatures of astronauts who contributed to the program by traveling to space.
