Life In A Day - A Cinematic Experiment

Life In A Day is an interesting project created by Oscar-winning director Kevin MacDonald and producer Ridley Scott. The idea is that on July 24 anyone can film an aspect of his or her life on that day and upload it to the Life In A Day YouTube channel. From all of the clips uploaded, MacDonald and Scott plan to create a story of one day of life on Earth. If your clip makes it into the film, you'll be credited as a co-director when the film is shown at the Sundance Film Festival. Additionally, 20 contributors will be selected to attend Sundance with MacDonald and Scott.



Applications for Education
Attending school is a major part of many peoples' lives so I think it would be great if Life In A Day had some footage about schools. If your school is in session right now, having students create a short video about a day in your school could be a good exercise in digital storytelling.
