Ridley Scott wants to see your “Life in a Day”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Calling all up-and-coming documentary filmmakers. YouTube has joined forces with esteemed directors Ridley Scott and Kevin Macdonald in asking people around to world to help them create the first user-generated feature-length documentary film shot on a single day — July 24, 2010.

“Life in a Day” will be an historic global film experiment that enlists the global community to capture a moment of their lives on Saturday, July 24, and to upload that footage to www.youtube.com/lifeinaday.

Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald (“State of Play,” “Last King of Scotland”) will direct, bringing together the most compelling footage into a feature-length documentary film. The project will be executive produced by Scott and produced by his company Scott Free Productions. Individuals whose footage makes it into the finished film will be credited as co-directors and 20 of these contributors will be flown to the 2011 Sundance Film Festival for the film’s world premiere.

“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,” Macdonald said. “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.”

Scott Free will work with Rick Smolan, creator of “A Day in the Life” and CEO of Against All Odds Productions, a California-based organization that specializes in the execution of large-scale global projects that combine story-telling with state-of-the-art technology, to distribute cameras to individuals in remote regions of the world in an effort to ensure that the film is as inclusive and representative as possible.
