Tell Us Your Story — Life in a Day Project 7-24-10

posted by Nell Minow

Take your camera out on July 24 and make a movie about your life — your work, your family, your friends, your home, your passion, your fear, your inspiration, your challenges, your music, your cooking, what you think is beautiful, what you think is sad, what makes you happy, what makes you proud, what makes you laugh. Two of the greatest film-makers in the world, Kevin Macdonald (“The Last King of Scotland”) and Ridley Scott (“Blade Runner” and “Gladiator”) are going to take all of those movies and make them into one big movie snapshot of life on earth on that one day.
Google, which is sponsoring this project, said in its press release:

Kevin Macdonald, the Oscar-winning director of films such as The Last King of Scotland, Touching the Void and One Day in September, will then edit the most compelling footage into a feature documentary film, to be executive-produced by Ridley Scott, the director behind films like Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Thelma & Louise, Blade Runner and Robin Hood. LG Electronics is supporting “Life in a Day” as a key part of its long-standing “Life’s Good” campaign and to support the creation of quality online content that can be shared and enjoyed by all.

The film will premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and if your footage makes it into the final cut, you’ll be credited as a co-director and may be one of 20 contributors selected to attend the premiere.
