Almost Here: 2 Days

HELLO 73 DAYS LATER COMMUNITY!

The Inauguration is just around the corner and our team of filmmakers couldn't be more busy collecting interviews around the country, logging video submissions through the website, capturing footage at political events, and organizing our growing family of filmmakers and collaborators. We're excited to announce that it's easier than ever to submit a video to the project - you can now record one directly through our SUBMIT A VIDEO page. And remember: we’re accepting video submissions through Sunday, January 22nd. 

There are plenty more updates for the project, so let’s dive right in. 

Brand new Teaser Trailer is here!

NEW MEDIA COVERAGE

Last week producer Baily Hopkins shared her experience with the project thus far with SF Station. “We’re just trying to answer a question a lot of people have on their minds right now and that’s, how do we try to listen again?” Read the full article here. KQED also posted and shared some exerpts from the interview director Maxwell Salvati had with The California Report. Read the full article here.

THE 73 DAYS LATER FILMMAKING TEAM IS GROWING RAPIDLY!

73 Days Later now has filmmakers from California, New York, North Dakota, Texas, Idaho, Washington D.C., Missouri, Washington, and Wisconsin. A huge shout out to Brandon Freeman for coordinating, conducting, and filming 2 days of interviews in Boise, Idaho for 73 Days Later, and to all the team members who are grabbing their cameras, starting conversations with strangers, interviewing community members, attending, filming local political events.

OPEN CALL: We are still looking to bring more filmmakers on board for this big Inauguration weekend. 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 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 Maxwell Salvati at 73DaysLater@gmail.com if you are interested in joining the team.

UPCOMING FILM SHOOTS

Our SF Team has been keeping busy with local political events. We were at Milo Yiannopoulos’s speaking engagement at UC Davis on Friday 1/13 when it got cancelled due to protests. We interviewed members of the Davis College Republicans, as well as protestors from all sides. On Monday, our crew hit the streets of Oakland to gather reactions from the attendees of the MLK March, and last night we joined up with members of the Bay Area Conservatives at their monthly happy hour. In the following days, we plan on having cinematographers and interviewers out at the following events:
