YouTube & Sundance: 'Life in a Day' User Generated Film Experiment

Youtube.lifeinadayWhat does your Life in a Day look like? Everyone has a story. Every day has a story. Sundance and YouTube want you to share your story with the world.

Sundance Institute are joining forces with YouTube and filmmakers Kevin Macdonald and Ridley Scott to create the first-ever user-generated film shot in a single day. The film will document one day on earth (July 24, 2010), as seen through the eyes of people around the world.

Want to take part? Here’s what to do:

1. Visit the “Life in a Day” channel on YouTube and learn more about the project. Be sure to read through the steps you need to take to participate and the guidelines for creating your video(s). Also check out some of the sample videos for inspirational ideas.

2. On July 24, capture your day on camera.

3. Upload your footage to the “Life in a Day” channel any time before July 31.

Regardless of whether your footage makes it into the final film, your video(s) will live on on the “Life in a Day” channel as a time capsule that will tell future generations what it was like to be alive on July 24, 2010.

If your footage is selected for the completed film, you’ll get the chance to attend the premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. This is your chance to be part of cinematic history!
