Life in a Day is a historic global event to create the first user generated feature film documenting a single day on Earth. It’s a unique time capsule that will tell future generations what it was like to be alive on the 24th of July 2010. On that day, people around the world captured a moment of their lives on camera and over 80,000 videos were uploaded to YouTube.
Academy Award winning director Kevin Macdonald and producer Ridley Scott have teamed up to tell a highly emotional story from the submitted footage.
The film will have a worldwide day and date premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and on YouTube in January 2011.
It’s hard to read that synopsis without thinking to yourself, ‘this is a movie made for us, by us!’ The entire concept behind its production is interesting and we’re more than intrigued to see how everything turned out.
