The first topic was EARTH:
Seeing that tomorrow (4/22/10) is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, it is fitting that our first topic should focus on the planet we live on. We are well aware of the fact that you cannot create a discovery channel series in three weeks, but that's not what we are looking for! We would like to see you get out and film your local habitat and show us what makes where you live unique. Be it the radical cliffs you live near, biodiversity in your back yards, or rolling hills and grassy plains, we want you to show us what slice of earth you live on. Now grab your and start filming!
