Every day, 6.7 billion people view the world through their own unique lens. Imagine if there was a way to collect all of these perspectives, to aggregate and mold them into the cohesive story of a single day on earth.

Film Your Day on July 24

However, not just any day. YouTube has set July 24 for this experiment. All you need to do is on July 24, take a snapshot of your life, bet it mundane or interesting. YouTube says

You can film the ordinary — a sunrise, the commute to work, a neighborhood soccer match, or the extraordinary — a baby’s first steps, your reaction to the passing of a loved one, or even a marriage.

Once you have recorder your life in a day, upload the videos here at http://www.youtube.com/lifeinaday between July 24 to July 31. Kevin Macdonald, the Oscar-winning director will edit the best ones to make into a documentary that will be produced by Ridley Scott, another Hollywood director famous for movies like Gladiator.

And the film with your footage (if selected) will be premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and you will be credited as a co-director. If lucky, you may even get to attend the premiere. Share your life in a day here.
