You’ve got a hot date with YouTube. No, really. Come Friday January 28th at 12:15pm you need to have your popcorn ready to watch an historic cinematic event unfold: Life in a Day.
Produced by Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator) and directed by Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland, One Day in September), Life in a Day is a crowdsourced documentary which pieces together filmed experiences submitted by people around the world, to create a snapshot, a time capsule, of one day on earth: July 24, 2010.
This monumental undertaking will premiere at Sundance, and the entire event will be streamed live on YouTube. Only one Australian made the cut – this moving declaration by Ron hints at the thematic depths Macdonald is prepared to convey, but on the lighter side of life, the teaser below promises to put a big, goofy grin on your face.
So set yourself a reminder and tune in to see just how this cinematic experiment will play out*. A day in the life has never been so epic.
