The resulting media will be showcased in an interactive geo-tagged archive and a TV series on the future of the American city. In addition, local media partners will showcase the most powerful and inspiring videos created during the one-day filmmaking event.
“This is an opportunity for New Yorkers to come out and start communicating about the future,” said Brandon Litman, 32, co-creator and executive producer of the project. “Any one can contribute, and it doesn’t matter what camera you’re holding — it matters what you’re pointing it at,” he said.
