On July 24, 2010, YouTube invited people from all over the world to capture glimpses of their lives on camera and upload them to YouTube. The resulting Life in a Day project, directed by Kevin MacDonald and produced by Ridley Scott, weaves together about 1,000 snapshots of people’s lives — out of over 80,000 total submissions — to create a completely user-generated and powerful documentary of daily life.
Tonight the 90-min feature film premieres at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and streams live on YouTube simultaneously (8 p.m. EST). Google Creative Labs also developed a massive touch screen installation featuring all of the videos, including the thousands not shown in the film, that’s currently on display at Sundance in Park City, Utah.
This new interactive music video takes a similar route to Arcade Fire’s The Wilderness Downtown but takes it one step further, with animations of windows.
It may not achieve the same powerful emotional connection as the Arcade Fire video, but it’s an awesome use of the technology.
