Internet video channel YouTube has has announced  it will work with  Hollywood directors Ridley Scott and Kevin MacDonald  to make the first ever user-created feature documentary, shot in one single day. Entitled ‘Life In A Day’, the film wants YouTube users to provide footage of a moment of their lives on Saturday, July 24. Director Ridley Scott will oversee the project, while director Kevin MacDonald will be in charge of editing the contributions into a feature-length documentary.
“Life In A Day is a time capsule that will tell future generations what it was like to be alive on the 24th of July, 2010,” said Macdonald. “It is a unique experiment in social film-making, and what better way to gather a limitless array of footage than to engage the world’s online community.”

To participate, YouTube users must upload their footage to YouTube.com/lifeinaday. Those whose footage makes the final cut will be credited as co-directors. What do you think?
