Inside looking Out – One Strange Time is documentary made by you and us about the impact of the global Coronavirus Crisis.
With over 1/3 of the global population in lock down we want you to share the changes to nature, the environment, your lives and the way you see the world during this time.
We want your videos
We want your phone or other videos, still images of this strange time around three themes.
- The changes you see to nature and the environment and how you perhaps now experience it in a different way from your window or daily exercise.
- Your daily life, the way you interact with family, friends, and how your perceptions of the world have changed.
- Your work, business, perception of money and how you survive and adapt.
This film will be made by you and thousands of others who are going through similar experiences. This is a film about our unity through story, hope despite the struggle and the strange scary, sad and sometimes wonderful new world we have encountered with an invisible enemy.
We want to capture this unique time from the people’s point of view, not the media’s, and to share your very real experiences and hopes in a meaningful and authentic way
This is for you and us and the world.
We want to see how you and the world around you has changed.
Can you now hear bird song when once you could only hear traffic? Can you see deer wandering through your city? Are you connecting with friends on zoom who you haven’t spoken for years? Are you overwhelmed by anxiety and money worries? Have you forged new bonds with your neighbours?
- Shoot Landscape not portrait.
- Let us see your world happening.
- Surprise us, be honest and be brave.
- Be tender in difficult moments.
- We like wonder as much as the tough times.
- Be yourself, be human.
- If you want to diary, that’s fine too.
Anything you send us you will need to do so understanding it will be lent to us on a creative common license so we can use it for the film / series at no charge. We may change that at a later date but we think this is fair as we do not seek to profit and see other profit from this time. We seek to inform, move and inspire with what we all see and experience.
