Ridley Scott seeks wannabe YouTube directors

Ridley Scott has made an open call to all budding directors to contribute to his new YouTube project, 'Life in a Day'.

Acting as producer, Scott (Aliens, Blade Runner) is teaming up with Kevin Macdonald (Last King of Scotland, Touching the Void) to create 'Life in a Day', a documentary which will chronicle the events of a single day on earth, July 24, 2010, using footage shot by YouTubers from around the world on that day.

The project is being hailed as YouTube’s "first user-generated feature-length documentary".

To get involved, simply shoot something on July 24 and upload it to

The film will premier at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011 and all users whose content is included in the finished feature will be credited as co-directors. Twenty lucky directors will be flown to Sundance for the premier.
