Life in a Day

Posted in Movies, Social Media, Video by Megan Do on July 19, 2010

Oscar-winning director Kevin Macdonald and award-winning executive producer Ridley Scott team up with YouTube to bring a historical global experiment, Life in a Day. On July 24, people have 24 hours to “capture a glimpse” of their lives on camera. The most “compelling and distinctive” footage will be edited and used in a documentary film that premiere at Sundance Film Festival in January 2011.

This definitely isn’t the first time people have been encouraged to submit their videos online but to my knowledge, taking their footage and making it into an actual feature-length film has never been done. This is an incredible idea and will be a fascinating look into the lives of people around the world.
