Have you ever wanted to help Ridley Scott make a movie? Well now you can.
Producer Ridley Scott and Director Kevin Macdonald (State of Play, Touching the Void, The Last King of Scotland) are teaming up with YouTube to create a film that is described as being the first user-generated feature length documentary. The film is called Life in a Day and it will incorporate footage shot on July 24th 2010 that will be shot by YouTube users from all over the world. Macdonald will then take all of this footage and compile it into a feature film. Macdonald had this to say about the project,
Life in a Day is a time capsule that will tell future generations what it was like to be alive on the 24th of July, 2010. It is a unique experiment in social filmmaking, and what better way to gather a limitless array of footage than to engage the world's online community.
The film is already set to premiere at The Sundance Film Festival next year. If your footage makes it into the final film, you will be credited as a co-director on the film project. This should end up being a very interesting experiment and it should be cool to see how it all turns out.
Check out some more details on the the project below and let us know what ya think. Is this something you'll try to be a part of?
