YouTube Life in a Day Live: Submit movie footage

During the past few days YouTube has been building up to a big event, which we discussed a few days ago. We can now tell you that Life in a Day is today and allows you the opportunity to submit your movie footage that could end up beings used in a movie.

This experiment is the first of its kind where producer Ridley Scott and director Kevin Macdonald will take as many movies as they can and include it in a single movie. The experiment lasts for just one day and will end at 11.59 p.m. local time – those in Far Eastern countries had better get a move in and beat the rush.

British director Macdonald has a video on YouTube (see below) explaining what it is all about. He begins by telling us that he wants us to upload thousands of videos on YouTube from all over the world of an everyday aspect of our day. The footage will then be used as part of the movie, and will be about what it is like to be alive.

Macdonald believes that it could act as some kind of time capsule so people in the future will be able to look back at what a Day in the Life in 2010 was like. The footage you send in could just be of you going to work or it could be more meaningful or emotional. Just remember to keep it clean, but we all know that YouTube has a good filter in place for things like that.
