July 25th.Film Your Day.Share Your Story.

On July 25, 2020, film your day and you may become part of a historic global documentary, produced by Ridley Scott, directed by Kevin Macdonald and filmed by you. Get ready to take part.

In 2020, history is being made every day.

Australian bushfires. Civil unrest in Hong Kong. A pandemic that took precious lives and altered the way we live. Protests in every corner of America — and around the world — to demand that Black Lives Matter.

But within the midst of those extraordinary events, lifestyle still continues.
  • We share moments, music, and meals.
  • We dance. We laugh. We cry.
  • We love. We fear. We hope.

What if we captured all of it during a single day?

On Saturday, July 25, 2020, film your day and upload your footage and you'll become a part of a historic documentary – a container of the year 2020.

Anyone can participate and submissions from everywhere the planet are going to be woven together to make a feature , produced by Ridley Scott, directed by KevinMacdonald, filmed by you, and premiering at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.

Submissions open on July 25th and close on August 2nd.

Learn more about filming requirements and how to take part. Let’s write the story of 2020 together.


“A rousing success of an experiment: quite possibly the first large-scale, global use of the Internet to create meaningful and beautiful art.”

In July 2010, tens of thousands of people picked up their cameras and followed a simple invitation: show us what your day looks like.

With over 80,000 clips submitted from 189 countries, Life in a Day became the biggest participatory film project ever made. From 4,500 hours of footage, Kevin Macdonald and his team created a 90-minute feature film that premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and on YouTube. It’s since been watched over 16 million times.

You can watch the full film here.


Taking part is simple: On July 25, grab your camera or smartphone and film your day.

You might record a typical day ⁠— going to work, connecting with family, being with friends. Or maybe something special is happening – it’s your wedding day, you have important news to share, or you’re having a baby. You could show us lockdown in your city, how your world is opening up, or something you’re fighting for.

Alternatively, you could choose to film someone you find interesting and spend the day capturing their July 25th.

According to You Tube , they said
“We’d also like you to show or tell us the answers to these four questions”:

  • What do you love?
  • What do you fear?
  • What would you like to change? Either about the world, or your own life.
  • What’s in your pocket?

The most important thing is to make it personal. Share what matters to you. This is your film.

Submissions are open from July 25 – August 2.

 After submissions close, a team of researchers and editors will review the clips received. If your footage is used in the final film, we will contact you later in the year.

Tips for filming---->>

Following a few of these simple tips will increase the likelihood of your work being included in the finished film.


Film making is storytelling: Think about how to hold the viewers’ attention. Whether you’re filming yourself or someone else, the more personal and honest, the better.

Hold your shots

Hold your shots long enough to establish them in the viewers’ minds. Avoid lots of panning and zooming — it will look messy and it will leave your viewers dizzy.

Shoot landscape

Make sure to shoot in landscape mode (so hold your phone on its side).


You can submit as much or as little footage as you like, and you can record footage in any language.

Capture highest quality possible in 24fps

We’ll accept footage shot on any device, including mobile phones, but higher resolution footage will translate better to the finished film. So choose 4K over 1080p if your camera will allow it. Also, select 24fps as your frame rate, or 30fps if that is not an option on your camera or phone. Go to Settings in your phone and look up the Camera section.

Get the best sound

It’s important that we can hear you properly. Pay attention to any background noise that may interfere with your recording. If possible, plug a basic microphone into your camera to get the best sound possible.

No filters

Do not use any filters, stickers, or special effects. We want your raw footage.
