Today is Earth Day, and to celebrate it filmmakers Kyle Ruddick and Brandon Litman have released “One Day on Earth,” a remarkable snapshot of our planet that was shot in every country of the world on October 10, 2010.

More than 19,000 filmmakers, professional and novice, contributed more than 3,000 hours of footage to the project, which has the support of the United Nations and 60 nonprofit organizations. The archive is being hosted by Vimeo, with Ning hosting the related social network.

The project is said to have been the inspiration for Ridley Scott’s “Life in a Day,” which opened last year as a stitched-together series of YouTube videos.

“One Day on Earth,” meanwhile, takes a hard look at pressing global issues like endangered species, carbon emissions, and poverty. It tells viewers that, for instance, 1.3 billion people have no access to clean water, and a species becomes extinct every 20 minutes.
