YouTube today is very different – I mean in terms of influencing our everyday lives. I myself has become a massive YouTube user because of all the interesting videos that I get to see. Just imagine how a 4-minute video will make your life different; either you laugh, you feel disgust, or even cry.
If you’ve not yet heard of YouTube’s “Life in a Day” you’ve still got time to be a part of this unique global experiment. On July 24 you can help to document a single day on earth. Click YouTube here to find everything you need to know. The experiment is billed as “An historic cinematic event” and it will be produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Kevin MacDonald.
It needs the involvement of people in the YouTube community and the idea is a user-generated feature film shot in a single day. On July 24 you need to take some film capturing a part of your life on that day. All those films will then be edited and the most gripping and interesting footage will then be part of the documentary film.
There’s a further thrill as if you are lucky enough to have any of your footage in the final cut, you’ll be listed as co-director and 20 of those will then be chosen to attend the premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2011. This sounds really interesting.
