The story of a single day on earth, July 24, is set to be documented in a single film in time to premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. YouTube and Ridley Scott of Gladiator fame mastermind this concept. Look how many people joined in to make brand-new film history.

July started with inviting people around the world to take part in its Scott collaboration, the Life in a Day project. The project aimed at filing minutes-long films of how people lived on that one highlighted day–July 24. Responses flooded the video sharing site, and the final count now closed in on 80,000.

That is quite a figure to work on for the YouTube team, EP Ridley Scott and editor Kevin Macdonald (director of The Last King of Scotland and One Day in September). But there is still enough time to complete the project before it appears in the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. The creators of the footages that will be fortunate to get in, will get credited as co-directors. Twenty participants will also be given seats in the film event.

YouTube tweeted a promise that we will be able view some of those 80,000 galleries on the site next month. Meantime and while waiting for the main entries’ release, check out this video by Christian Van Vuuren, a TB patient who helped market the Life in a Day project back in July.
