Ridley Scott To Direct "Life in A Day" YouTube Documentary

Director Ridley Scott is planning to crowdsource a documentary by getting YouTube users to upload a video from a day in their lives onto the Google-owned platform, The Guardian has reported.

Scott, who has directed Academy award winning moves such as Gladiator and Alien, is partnering with fellow director Kevin MacDonald and YouTube to direct a feature-length documentary titled "Life in a Day".

Users would be required to upload a video of a specific moment in their lives on 24 July.

Short listed users will be credited as co-directors and a selected 20 will be flow to view the premier at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

YouTube announced in a blog post that even if some of the entries don't make it to the final documentary, they would permanently remain on the "Life in a Day" YouTube channel, so that future generations will be able to see how people's lives were on 24 July 2010.
