The Final Countdown: 9 Days

Hello Readers!

With only 9 days to go until the inauguration, we’ve been hard at work gathering as much compelling and thought-provoking material as we can. Keeping that goal in mind, and in an effort to keep you both informed and engaged with the project regarding the different ways you can get involved, we want to share some of what’s happening, what’s been happening, and what we expect to happen during our final stretch of filming. We’ll be sure to update this section regularly over the coming days, so please check back for more exciting updates.

New Media Coverage

Director Maxwell Salvati was recently interviewed for KQED's The California Report, regarding our project and the different ways people can get involved. Please check it out here if you haven’t already. It's a great 5-minute segment to share with folks who might want to learn more about the project! 

73 Days Later is Expanding our Team of Filmmakers

We are so excited to share that we’ve recently added new filmmakers to our team from a number important locales across the country—including Los Angeles, Idaho, and South Carolina, among others—that will go a long way towards ensuring the quality and variety of the perspectives on display in our film. We’re also currently in talks with filmmakers in Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Utah, and hope to have more news regarding their participation in the coming days.

OPEN CALL: We are always looking to expand out filmmaking team! If you or someone you know would like to be involved—whether that's gathering on-the-street interviews, organizing or hosting interview shoots, or collecting footage and B-roll of political happenings, protests, and celebrations—we would love to hear from you! We’re very thankful for the level of support and collaboration we’ve witnessed so far in the course of this project, and have been blown away by the talent, vision, and ingenuity of those who have chosen to get involved. As we come to closer to the inauguration, we are still looking for talented and motivated filmmakers and cinematographers who want to participate. We are especially looking for filmmakers and cinematographers in Washington D.C. who might be capturing footage of these final days before the inauguration, as well as any post-inauguration reactions. Please contact our Producer, Baily Hopkins, at if you are interested in joining the team.

Upcoming Film Shoots

Here at home base, we have a number of exciting shoots planned in the coming days, including outside Milo Yiannopoulos’s speaking engagement at UC Davis on January 13th, where we will be interviewing members of the Davis College Republicans, the MLK march in Oakland on January 16th, and a number of interviews with social, political, and mass movement leaders across the country. 

Video Submission Updates

On the technical side, we are now accepting video interview submissions via Dropbox in addition to Youtube, which will hopefully help to make uploading, sharing, and managing submissions more convenient and accessible. Please visit the SUBMIT A VIDEO page to find more about how to submit.

More Updates Soon!
