mentioned in the other post, if the timing works (as promised) I will be getting a pair of WWII bombers taking off shot from the control tower. otherwise, it'll be just normal airport activity!

I'm using the Atomic Clock app on the iPhone. It displays seconds numerically and dots to mimic the second hand. (just want to be as accurate as possible HaHa!)

Hi guys! I'm so happy you guys are taking part! I love the ideas - the airport and the train station are awesome! I really hope those two WWII bombers will be taking off during the minute - WOW!

So to answer the question about time-stamping from the clock in a train station: that's fine, but if you could, please double-check that it matches NIST time. If it's off a second or so, you could make a note of it on your submission "form" upon upload.

I don't mean to be anal, but we're trying to take the simultaneous factor as seriously as possible. To have all these streams of footage truly be playing back simultaneously will be a powerful thing for people to see, but only if they know it is accurate.

Below I detail the TIME-STAMPING methods, and below that, info on how to SUBMIT your media.

TIME-STAMPING:
The official live world time-count is displayed at The Simultania Project. In the seconds before the 1-minute-moment is set to begin, start your recording by using one of the time-stamping methods below. Then without stopping your recording go on to film whatever you intend to for the 1-minute-moment.

1. Time-Code Apps
Get the free Emerald Time app for iPhone/iPad or the free Navy Clock II app for Android. Film the live-time count directly off the screen of your mobile device.

Emerald Time: Emerald Time for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store
Navy Clock II: Navy Clock II - Android app from Richard Schilling | Appolicious Android App Directory

2. Computer Screen
Start your recording by filming the live time-count right off the screen of your computer.

3. Watch/Clock
Set your watch or clock to the live time-count displayed at The Simultania Project. Then, in the seconds before the 1-minute-moment is set to begin, start your recording by filming the face of your watch or clock as the seconds tick away.
*If your watch or clock doesn't have a second hand, digital or otherwise, just film the face of it as it changes from one minute to the next, i.e., as it changes from 3:59pm UTC to 4:00pm UTC.

For those recording audio-only:
Audio 1
Having either set your watch to the official live time-count or using one of the above apps, audibly indicate the start of the 1-minute-moment.
Audio 2
Call the NIST phone service at 1-303-499-7111 (a U.S. phone number) and record the audio from the phone. Be sure to catch the automated voice announcing the time as well as the subsequent beep indicating the start of the next minute. Give yourself more time if you use this method.

SUBMITTING MEDIA:
I'm putting a "SUBMIT" media button on the website today. With this, you just browse to find your media and hit upload. It can take awhile (3-15 minutes), depending on the speed of your connection and the size of your media.

If you experience any trouble uploading in this way, you can upload via Vimeo. I've made a Simultania Project Group at Simultania Project on Vimeo, so you can either upload it directly to the group, or upload it and email me the link to your footage at erin@simultaniaproject.com. To use Vimeo, you have to sign up to use the service.

And finally, if you want to send me a master copy of your beautiful footage, you can send it to the Simultania Project P.O. Box at:
The Simultania Project
1112 Montana Ave.
Box 452
Santa Monica, CA 90403

Thanks guys! So excited to see what you shoot!!

Erin,

Are there any specific formats you would like the footage in? I looked on your site but couldn't find any guidelines.

Completed Footage Question

Hi,

Just wondering if anybody who completed their Simultania Project Shoot encountered
any "dead frames / seconds" say, where you were in transit from your time-stamping
shot of the computer face, or hand-held phone at the beginning, and then panning,
or re-focusing at that point, onto the beginning of your subject.

In my case, I had 3-4 seconds where the assistant holding my phone up to the camera,
didn't pull it away promptly, due to sun glare, and the effect was an extra 3-4 seconds of
"phone / clock" footage.

I think Erin Cooney would like the "scrap" cut, but the resulting "black" is an issue on which
she hopfully will instruct us soon.

Hi John and everybody!

In this case, I'd prefer you leave those first 3-4 seconds of the time-stamp at the beginning. The most important thing to me is that we are able to sync up the videos accurately and honestly with the rest of the submissions. It's my intention to play everything back in true simultaneous streams. If that means your shot of the 1-minute-moment begins with the time-stamp, that's just fine.

If you want to give it to me raw, I am prepared to trim the "edges" off each side of the minute. If you want to edit to give me the exact 1-minute-moment, that would be fabulous. But I do want it to be accurate. If that means showing me the time-stamping process in the first few seconds, that's absolutely fine with me.

Thank you so much guys! I've already received 150 submissions! This is going to be amazing! I can't wait for you all to see the installation on the website!
