Ridley Scott and director Kevin Macdonald are planning to make a sequel to their 2010 documentary Life in a Day, a compilation of homemade footage, submitted by 80,000 people from 192 countries, to see what people were doing on July 24, 2010.
It’s been an entire decade since the documentary came out, and the two directors are asking people from all over the world to video their lives on July 25. All submissions will go through a team of 30 reviewers and three editors, alongside Macdonald himself, in putting together the feature-length documentary. It’s worth highlighting a few requirements before deciding to take part in the project: anyone captured in the video must give permission to be filmed and there must be no music playing in the background. Additionally, the filmmakers suggested videos be shot horizontally at hi-res while using an external mic to capture sound. Those wishing to submit footage have until August 2.
Life in a Day 2020 will premier on YouTube and at the Sundance Film Festival next year.
