YouTube joins world famous filmmakers Ridley Scott and Kevin Macdonald in asking people around to world to help them create the first user-generated feature-length documentary film shot on a single day - July 24, 2010.
Life in a Day is a global film experiment that enlists the global community to capture a moment of their lives on Saturday, July 24 and to upload that footage to Youtube.
The final Film will make its world premiere at 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald (State of Play, Last King of Scotland, Touching the Void) will direct, bringing together the most compelling footage into a feature-length documentary film.
The project will be executive produced by Ridley Scott (Robin Hood, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down) and produced by his company Scott Free Productions. Individuals whose footage makes it into the finished film will be credited as co-directors and 20 of these contributors will be flown to the 2011 Sundance Film Festival for the film’s world premiere.

This sounds like a pretty cool project and could become a great snapshot of life on planet earth in 2010 if people around the world upload their "current life."
More details can be found on this Youtube page.
