11.11.11 : part one : the morning routine

with 28 comments

So 11.11.11 saw me take part in One Day on Earth…… I photographed and filmed my day alongside many other people from all over the world.

Recording the day and editing it together has been so wonderful, a really great project to work on…. and now I’ve created a very personal piece of work, our own time capsule… a day of our life captured forever.

With so much footage, our day has been split into three parts, which will be shared over the coming days.

It’s like most days in our life, it starts with the morning routine… welcome to our morning….

This idea of a making a time capsule has got me thinking… would you like to create a little slice of your life in a film or slideshow?….

I loved doing it and creating the other films I’ve been making from the “I love…” series… and I’ve had a few people ask if I would share how and what I’m doing… So an idea is formulating in my head…

Would you be interested in the idea of an e-course?… a workshop? … Would you like some hints & tips to inspire you to make your own time capsule?…. mmmmmmm, have a think…

Please let me know if you’re interested. I’ve created a brand new email subscribe form here….. (so we can stay in touch) or leave a comment here… or drop me an email – xantheb@mac.com

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    I.LOVE.THIS! And Yes! Yes! Yes! to a workshop…

    And my kiddos thought learning about the Egyptians was fascinating, too! We were going to mummify a chicken but thought twice after a friend who did it said it stunk horribly! But you never know, it might just happen next year when we re-visit Ancient Egypt with the littlest ones.

    I’ve often thought about what it would be like to have sons and I think that discussions of mummification and intestines over Nutella captures it! I love this and I would love a workshop or course on how to do one.
    (as long as you talk because you know I’d happily tune in to hear you recite a phone book!).
