Life in a Day

Feature film which documents a single day on earth through a multitude of perspectives - ordinary and extraordinary - all shot on 24 July 2010.

It brings together the most compelling footage from more than 80,000 videos submitted, totalling 4500 hours of content, and combines 331 clips into a 95-minute film crafted by Kevin Macdonald, executive producer Ridley Scott, producer Liza Marshall and their team, in association with YouTube.

Contributions poured in from 192 countries from Australia to Zambia, Peru to Ukraine, UK to Japan - from the heart of bustling cities to the furthest and most remote reaches of the earth. Many of the entries were submitted via YouTube, while a number came from cameras that were handed out by contacts in the developing world.
