Passing Through, Life in a day Canada

In a small backyard, connected in the distance to many others, a woman walks through her lush garden. On this particular morning, in a suburban neighbourhood, the overcast sky predicts rain. Capturing uneventful scenes such as these, the film contemplates the significance of these simple, everyday moments. With an aim to embrace whatever circumstances the day presented, while going about doing necessary tasks and errands, the camera enters one person’s world and reveals something of what it means to be. Listening in and watching clients at a hair salon, the camera follows a woman through the back door, downstairs to an alleyway and a glimpse into a barbershop. A visit with two elderly sisters in a nursing home reveals a space full of memories and physical limitations.

The circumstances of this day, in this particular place, involved a lot of rain. The film focuses on visual and aural images of rain pouring down on cars, puddles, parking lots, on gardens and lawns. The ominous clouds in the distance don’t stop a group of children from enjoying the downpour while playing in a wading pool. The commotion of the rain has people rushing into a grocery store. The calm when it subsides shows order restored. After the rain, rabbits scurry across a lawn, birds sing and more weeding needs to be done. The same yard starts to darken, doors slam shut as the day nears an end. Somewhere else a new day is about to begin or is mid-way through, but on this street, a full moon has risen in the sky as cars drive past silent houses.

Major feelings: serenity, contemplative

Sad example is available to illustrate how youtube partner (partners are those who make money by displaying Google AdSense ads on their videos and youtube pages), is gambling with video titles, tags and video description, so search engines deliver faked results and therefore push away Life in a Day videos by ordinary Youtubers out of reach by a loyal web surfer. See this post for details.

Get wild with your creativity! As of August 14, 2010 in response on youtubers request mission expanded. You now can share here not only the film of raw footage that you uploaded to Youtube by 31 July 2010, but also new edited videos filmed on July 24. While both are required and will be linked to each other, we suggest you share your raw footage film now and have edited film shared whenever you have it.

We also welcome those youtubers, who had very special 24-25 July 2010 weekend (such as wedding, honeymoon or anything else of exceptional personal value), to include July 25 videos in their "Life in a Day" film as well.
