Director Kevin MacdonaldYear 2011Genre(s) Documentaries
Life In A Day is a new take on the docu-film, though the film was directed by Kevin Macdonald, the footage was shot by thousands of different people from all over the world, who all wanted to contribute their personal stories to make it part of this film. All of the chosen recorders of footage are credited as co-directors.
On July 24, 2010 over 80,000 user-generated videos from 197 different countries were submitted to the youtube channel, which was set up by MacDonald and Ridley Scott's UK production company Scott Free. To try and capture a truly worldwide essence, cameras were also given to people in the developing world. The results are unique, a 95 minute glimpse into the lives of people celebrating, bringing new life into the world, those struggling with illness and others who might just be having a good time.
