Life in a Day / Shift in the Life

July 8, 2010 discussion, lead

“Aliens” and “Blade Runner” director Ridley Scott, along with Scottish Director Kevin MacDonald and YouTube are prepping for the mammoth project called “Life in a Day.”

They’re “crowd-sourcing” a movie that takes place entirely in 24 hours of July 24, 2010. You shoot a day in your life, send it to YouTube, and Scott and MacDonald will edit all down to a documentary for the Sundance Film Festival.

To totally steal their idea, we want you to shoot a “Shift in the Life.” Upload a short package introducing us to your shop – your newsroom – your trucks – and your gear. Let us meet your fellow photogs and reporters. Show us what it’s really like in your world.

We’ll gather some prizes and give you something for your hard work.

More details to follow.

    Far be it for me to suggest that the exulted film luminaries behind a “Day in the Life” are total morons but having it on a Saturday??? Isn’t that kinda stupid? Won’t it limit what people do to weekend activates and not a “normal” day in the life?
    Kevin I hope your shift thing isn’t so short sighted.
