♫ Brazilian hip hop music in background ♫ The goal of the Global lives Project is to videotape 24 hours in the daily lives of 10 people from all over the world. Right now we're here in São Paulo, Brazil doing our second shoot for the project. We are a collective of dozens of filmakers, artists, architects, programmers and everyday people from all around the planet. We're going to end up with 240 hours of footage, and the idea is to take all this footage and create a video installation The visitor to this installation will be able to walk through ten different rooms And each of the rooms will have the unedited footage of each of our subjects The point of this is to really take people out of their own daily lives and bring them into the realities of people from all walks of life from all over the world. The first Global Lives shoot took place in San Francisco, California, with cable car driver James Bullock. Additional shoots are already taking place in other countries. All our videos will become part of a participatory video library of human life experience free and open for contributions from the public. Through immersion in this small but diverse sampling of daily human existence viewers will be challenged to rethink both their own lives and their connections with the rest of the world.
