Description
  • "In May 2010, Sundance Institute was invited to participate in a global cinematic experiment. Oscar-winning director Kevin Macdonald was planning to direct a feature-length documentary shot in a single day, July 24. Fueled by the power and innovation of YouTube, the project enlisted a global community to capture a moment of their lives on camera. We worked together to spread the word, and the world responded with more than 80,000 submissions; over 5,000 hours of deeply personal, powerful film clips were uploaded from contributors from Australia to Zambia, from the heart of the bustling cities to the furthest and most remote reaches of Earth. Life in a Day is a compilation of the most compelling images honed by Macdonald, executive producer Ridley Scott and his team, and a crew of talented editors from the vast footage submitted. Their task was to create a unique cinematic experience: in beautiful and harrowing honesty, what it is to be alive on Earth today." Quoting the description from the 2011 Sundance Film Festival Site.
  • Life in a Day is a crowdsourced drama/documentary film comprising an arranged series of video clips selected from 80,000 clips submitted to the YouTube video sharing website, the clips showing respective occurrences from around the world on a single day, July 24, 2010. The film is 94 minutes 53 seconds long and includes scenes selected from 4,500 hours of footage in 80,000 submissions from 192 nations. The completed film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival on January 27, 2011 and the premiere was streamed live on YouTube. On October 31, 2011, YouTube announced that Life in a Day would be available for viewing on its website free of charge, and on DVD. Wikipedia
