Sites We Love: Fifty People One Question

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

By Chris Teja

Asking people questions and filming their responses is a pretty straightforward idea, and that’s exactly what we love about it. Fifty People One Question is a project that is currently traveling from city to city, recording what everyday people have to say when given the chance to let their minds wander. In New Orleans…

and London.

Not unlike the six-word memoir, Fifty People One Question is a wonderfully simple concept can bring out the master storyteller in anyone. Needless to say, we dig it. You can check out all the project’s videos on Vimeo.
