This 4th of July, Thirty Seconds To Mars has tasked us with the job of showcasing to them what OUR America is. ‘A Day in the Life of America’ is an all-encompassing film project and will become a portrait of America. On the 4th the group will have film crews in all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. They will be looking to capture moments of what that day looks like across cultures and cities in our country.

In addition to their own crews, whether you’re a filmmaker or a fan, Thirty Seconds To Mars would like EVERYONE to submit their own footage of that day. Everything will then be combined to capture what 24 hours of life looks like in the USA on our Independence day.

Leto says in a letter on their site, “It’s an incredibly important time in our country and we are excited for people to film what they feel is important, impactful, challenging or inspiring. Whether it’s a single shot, a person, an event, or a story – we want to see your America. The birth of a child, the end of a life, the sunset, the sunrise, politicians, immigrants, a sky diver, a firefighter, heroes and villains, and every race, color and creed that make up the fabric of our nation. And of course – celebration and fireworks. Thirty Seconds to Mars is looking forward to you helping us capture America in all its imperfect glory and epic beauty and to celebrate the spirit of this great nation in an unforgettable way.”

I got to talk with Leto over the phone about the project last week. Hear the full interview!!

So you’re going to help right?! Get ready to shoot your own videos this Tuesday and submit to thirtysecondstomars.us! You can post your videos to social using the hashtag #ADayInTheLifeOfAmerica.

I’ll be talking to Jared Leto over the phone later today about this so PLEASE send me your questions!!! And trust me, I haven’t forgotten about this teaser video we got earlier this month. I will be asking about the new album. 😉
