Life in a Day
On July 24, 2010, thousands of people around the world uploaded videos of their lives to YouTube to take part in Life in a Day, a historic cinematic experiment to create a documentary film about a single day on earth.
Life in a Day is an experiment by Google to create the world’s largest user-generated documentary, shot in a single day. YouTubers from all over the world responded with more than 80,000 submissions from 192 countries, totaling more than 4,500 hours of footage.
The end result is a stylised collage of human life on earth, as lived and filmed on 24 July 2010. Life in a Day is produced in part by Ridley Scott and Tony Scott, and eventually directed by Oscar-winning Kevin Macdonald.
It has already opened in Germany and the UK, it opens in the USA on July 24th.
Lets hope there’s not too many cats.
