DETROIT – What does one day in Detroit look like?

Hundreds of filmmakers, non-profit organizations and inspired citizens will take to Detroit’s streets with video cameras on Saturday to answer the question.

Detroit is one of 11 U.S. cities and metropolitan areas to be featured in a nationwide video collaboration project called "Your Day. Your City. Your Future."

The goal is to document the issues and culture that matter most to residents by capturing a city's stories over a 24-hour period.

Detroit producer Steven McGee says he hopes the footage will show the city is not defined by headlines about bankruptcy and crime.

"Detroiters know that there's a lot more going on than that," says McGee. "And so I think this is an incredible opportunity for people to go out and talk about the positive momentums that are happening in our city, the challenges that are being overcome."

All the footage will be added to a geo-tagged archive, which the national producers will edit into an eventual three-part television series.

The project aims to look at issues such as homelessness, income inequality, immigrant communities, urban culture and diversity.

McGee says the videographers, who include amateurs using smartphones as well as professionals with full gear, will help identify not just the city's problems, but solutions.

"When you have access to a map of great stories around Detroit, then people are going to take notice and hopefully realize that there's a human element here too, not just empty buildings and challenges," he says.

The project comes from the founders of "One Day on Earth," the first documentary to film in every country in the world during the same 24-hour period.

The other cities and areas to be featured in the "Your Day. Your City. Your Future." project include Atlanta, Boston, Denver, the Lower Rio Grande Valley, New Orleans, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York, San Diego, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
