You want to direct a film that will premier at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival? Because Director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Black Hawk Down) wants you to.
Scott and Director Kevin Macdonald (Last King of Scotland) have teamed up with YouTube and LG for a project called “Life in a Day.” They are asking people all over the world to record a part of their real life on July 24th and much of the user-submitted footage will be used to create a single film that will make its premier at 2011’s Sundance.
Meant to serve as a time capsule, the creators want this film to show what Earth was like at a specific point in time. 20 contributors will get chosen to come along to the premiere, and everyone whose footage is included will receive a co-director credit. Contributors must upload their footage before July 31st, and the only restrictions are that you can’t include trademarks or copyrighted content in your film.
