Life In A Day

Filed under: #satscene —— Sylvia @ 21:35

On the 24th July, 2010 Google asked users to film a glimpse of their lives to document 24 hours on earth in a project called Life In A Day.

Life In A Day is a historic global experiment to create a user-generated feature film, shot in a single day, by you. On July 24, you have 24 hours to capture a glimpse of your life on camera.

Filmmakers Kevin Macdonald and Ridley Scott will be using the submissions to create an experimental documentary film using the “most compelling and distinctive footage.” Next week it will be possible to browse through the submitted footage and the film itself will premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. I don’t know how many people have taken part but there are currently over 32,000 comments in the Life In A Day channel so I suspect it may take some time to work through all the submissions.

Meanwhile, here on Twitter and Satscenes, we’ve been documenting single days on earth every Saturday for two years now! Our locations this week alone include Israel, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, England, Wales and the United States. That’s just how progressive we are.

Take a look at these great shots from 24 July 2010:

And the aspirational documentation collectors who took them:
