Ridley Scott, director of Blade Runner and Aliens, along with director Kevin Macdonald, Intends to "crowd scource" a documentary called "Life In a Day" using videos submitted to YouTube by the general public. The projects YouTube Channel explains, in part, as follows:
"Life in a day is a historic global experiment to create a user-generated feature film, shot in a singe day, by you. On July 24th, you have 24 hours to capture a glimpse of your life on camera. The most compelling and distinctive footage will be edited into an experimental documentary film, produced by Riddley Scott and directed by Kevin Macdonald."
The finished film will premier at the Sundance film festival in January of 2011 and 20 of the films chosen contributors will get to join Kevin Macdonald in Sundance. So if you would like to appear in a Ridley Scott film then all you have to do is record the most compelling moments of your day on July 24th and submit your footage to the project. If your footage makes it into the final film, you even get a co-directors credit.
