YouTube today announced a film
project titled Life in a Day,
one that needs your help to get off the ground. It will basically be a
documentary made up of multiple submissions, all of them shot on
Saturday, July 24th. Film something and upload it to the site and you
could be a part of it!

Ridley Scott is the producing the
project and Kevin Macdonald (Last King of
, Touching the Void)
will direct, and the film will screen at Sundance next year. What’s
more- should your footage be chosen you’ll be credited as a co-director,
and 20 of the the contributers will be flown out to Sundance for the
world premiere.
The director Kevin Macdonald says of
the project, “Life in a Day is a time capsule that will
tell future generations what it was like to be alive on the 24th of
July, 2010.  It is a unique experiment in social filmmaking,
and what better way to gather a limitless array of footage than to
engage the world’s online community.”
