YouTube Feature Film Produced By Ridley Scott Starts Production

by Kris

It’s not often you see well known directors and producers making feature films for YouTube. It’s just as rare that most of the production into the feature film is made by tens of thousands  of submitted clips from other people around the globe. Nevertheless, the movie starts post-production. Find out more about the Kevin Mcdonald’s YouTube movie “Life in a Day” (or as I like to call it “An Editors Worst Nightmare”) after the jump.

197 different countries. 45 different languages. 80,000 clips. 4,600 hours of footage. This is probably the largest experimental filmmaking attempt in history. I’m not good at math, so here’s the New York Time’s calculations.

“The NY Times reports that “about 4,600 hours of footage” were submitted. The paper says Scott expected about 300 hours. An average documentary might shoot at a ratio of about somewhere between 30:1 and 80:1 — that is, 30 to 80 minutes shot for every minute that ends up on screen. This crew is starting with a base footage ratio of about 2400:1.”

Don’t think the chosen clips will be screwed over, either. According to SlashFilm there will be proper crediting.

“Everyone who has footage included in the finished film will earn a credit as co-directors, and 20 of the co-directors will be flown and put up in Park City for the grand premiere at Sundance.”

If this gets finished, and I have no doubt that it will, Ridley Scott and Kevin McDonald will make history.
