YouTube Life in a Day 2020 Project Set for July 25

The original, viewed over 16 million times, took place July 24, 2010

On July 24, 2010, YouTube invited its community to participate in a feature-length film project that became Life in a Day, which drew 80,000 submissions, premiered at Sundance in 2011, was released globally in theaters and has been watched on YouTube over 16 million times.

Nearly 10 years to the date—Saturday, July 25—the Google-owned video site is doing it again.

Executive producers Kai Hsuing (Lords of Chaos) and Ridley Scott (Gladiator, The Martian) and director Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland, One Day in September, Whitney) are helming Life in a Day 2020.
