How to plan your day

At 8.30 am the participants using analogue photography, will receive a black and white film. The digital photographers are invited to arrive with their empty memory card. People using moving image / digital video will receive a MINI-DV of 60 minutes.

Mobile phone numbers will be exchanged and every three hours a secret theme will be disclosed by text and updated on our Facebook and Twitter feeds: first theme at 8.30pm (9.30am Pisa), second theme at 11.30am, third theme at 14.30pm and fourth theme at 17.30pm.

Participants are free to roam the streets of the city and capture their view on each theme. Closing time is 20.30pm: participants gather back at the meeting place, Fotosynthesis to return the exposed negatives or 36 digital photos. The movie makers can keep the MINI-DV with them for editing-purposes.
