What are some things you're doing to help make this film?
MAKING TIME...FOR A GOOD CAUSE!!! SO, PLEASE HELP NIRVAN!!! HE'S SPENT YEARS AND, HIS OWN TIME!!! EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS.. BECAUSE, EVEN A SMALL PEBBLE... CAN MAKE A MIGHTY WAVE............. READ THE FAQ'S... THANKS!!! NIRVAN'S VISION ... HIS ROAD TO OPRAH, AND MORE....... 5 Phase Plan The Collaboration Foundation will oversee 5 ambitious collaborative art projects designed to bring the world together. Each phase will grow in scale while addressing a different social issue. Phase I :: The 1 Second Film The 1 Second Film will create the 'World's Biggest Shortest Film' while laying the foundation for our various sequels. The animation was made in one night during a single collaborative event at CalArts on March 8, 2001 (International Women's Day). Using innovative micro-fundraising, the film will build toward a tipping point, and will include a feature-length documentary during the estimated 90-minutes of credits. All profits raised by the finished film will be donated to the Global Fund for Women to support women's human rights. Phase II :: The 2 Second Film The 2 Second Film will attempt to address the global impact of September 11th, 2001. The film will be two seconds long, made during two simultaneous events in different parts of the world. Each event will create one second of the animation that will then be combined. The animation will consist of large collaborativ murals and will depict two seconds of the 2nd airplane hitting the 2nd trade tower. One second of the animation will be made in New York while the other second is being made in an Afghanistan. International artists will direct the paintings while people attending the events help paint the frames; musicians from around the world will be invited to perform. The goal of The 2nd Second Film is to address a moment that continues to challenge the world by providing a platform for non-violent expression and dialogue to build cultural bridges. All profits raised from Phase 2 will be donated to civilian casualties in Afghanistan and NY. Phase III :: The 3-D Second Film THE 3-D SECOND FILM will be 3 seconds long and will address Global Warming. And yes, it will be in3-D! The animation will be created during 3 simultaneous events, each taking place in a different location around the world. Each event will create 24 large three-dimensional frames that will be filmed stereoscopically, resulting in three-seconds of 3-D animation. The events will feature live-music and performances. All proceeds from the events and the finished film will benefit the fight against Global Warming. Phase IV :: The 111 Second Festival THE 111 SECOND FESTIVAL will invite people around the world to submit their ideas to create a 1 Second Film. Each moment submitted will also include a related social cause. The Collaboration foundation will select 111 of the best submissions and provide the seed money to create 111 simultaneous events around the world. Each event will create one-second of animation while raising money and awareness for 111 different causes. Once completed, we will stream all 111 moments together to create THE 111 SECOND FILM FESTIVAL, along with a documentary about the various events. THE 111 SECOND FESTIVAL will expand the infrastructure necessary for executing Phase 5. Phase V :: The 11,111 Second Film The 11,111 SECOND FILM will be a narrative movie lasting 11,111 seconds (approximately 180 minutes). The film will be divided into two parts, a 90-minute animated feature film followed by a 90-minute credit-sequence with ‘making of’ documentary. The 90-minutes of animation will be narrative, with an original story to be written by an established screen writer. The 90-minutes of animation will be made during thousands of simultaneous events around the world, with each event making one-second or more of the animation. In 24 hours, 65,000 paintings will have been completed around the world, with the help of millions of people. These paintings will be combined to create 90-minutes of seamless animation. All proceeds raised by Phase 5 will be put toward ending Global Poverty. We believe this film has the potential to become one of the largest collaborative works-of-art ever made, while setting a new standard for what is possible when the world works together. This all starts with one second. Help produce The 1 Second Film.
Why are you supporting The 1 Second Film project?
I BELIEVE WE CAN USE OUR COLLECTIVE VOICE TO RAISE GREAT AWARENESS. RESULT, THE DOMINO EFFECT...IN ''REEL'' TIME...

3RDCOASTINC7's Perfect Moment

If you had to choose a 'perfect moment' from your life to make into a one-second film, what would it be?

MANY MOMENTS...MAKE UP A LIFE. NOT SURE IF I COULD PICK JUST ONE. BUT, ALWAYS,,THE EXCITEMENT OF CREATIVE SYNERGY... THE POWER, OF PURE HEARTED HUMAN EMOTION. THE PERFECT MOMENTS ARE FEELING THAT, WHAT YOU CAN BELIEVE, & ACHIEVE... IS NOT ONLY POSSIBLE,,, BUT, IS HAPPENENING!!! IN THAT MOMENT,,,YOU REALIZE YOU ARE MORE THAN ONE, ...A PART, OF MANY.

thank you so much eve! just to be clear about the way our fundraising works- donations currently go toward finishing The 1 Second Film, including the documentary post-production and the building of an online community. Once the film is completed, the profits from the film will benefit the Global Fund for Women. I don't want people to think that their donations to The 1 Second Film go to the Global Fund for Women. Our focus is creating collaborative art that can address various social issues- after this project we hope to expand the model to address other challenges.

Really appreciate you helping to spread the word. Let me know if you have any questions/thoughts.

best,
