Ridley Scott and Kevin MacDonald Teaming Up With YouTube To Make User-Generated ‘Life in a Day’

by Dan Koelsch

Back in April, we reviewed the documentary 140 as part of our Newport Beach Film Festival coverage. The concept was to have 140 people film 140 seconds at the exact same time, in order to get a snapshot of the world at one moment. While the doc was made by an amateur filmmaker, it looks like some more high profile entities are looking to do something similar.

YouTube is teaming up with producer Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator) and director Kevin MacDonald (The Last King of Scotland, State of Play) to bring you “Life In A Day“, made by you, and sponsored by LG. The documentary looks to showcase a day in the life of the real people in the YouTube community, to be filmed on a single day (June 24th). Check out the promotional video below.





Think of it as sort of a time capsule for future historians. Billing this as a “historic cinematic experiment”, YouTube is looking premiere the finished documentary at next year’s Sundance Film Festival. In fact, 20 of the chosen collaborators will get to help present the film at Sundance. To get more information on the film and how to participate, click here.
