Life In A Day, Documenting A Single Day On Earth

Life in a Day

Google has launched a new project “Life in a Day”, where they are inviting people to document their lives for 24 hours on July 24th. The best submissions will be edited into a feature length documentary directed by Kevin Macdonald and executive-produced by Ridley Scott. The finished film will premier at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

Life In A Day is a historic global experiment to create the world’s largest user-generated feature film: a documentary, shot in a single day, by you. On July 24, you have 24 hours to capture a glimpse of your life on camera. The most compelling and distinctive footage will be edited into an experimental documentary film, executive produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Kevin Macdonald.

UPDATE: A similar project, One Day on Earth is being organized for October 10th, 2010 (10.10.10).
