Legendary film director Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner) is teaming up with YouTube to produce a new crowdsourced video project that aims to capture the lives of millions of users on film. Dubbed Life In A Day, the project will feature videos shot by YouTubers around the world on a single day.

As part of the project, YouTube is asking its users to record moments from their lives on July 24, 2010 and upload those videos to the site. The most compelling moments will then be edited together by Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald (One Day in September, The Last King of Scotland) and released as a documentary at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. YouTube will debut the final cut of the film at the same day it is shown at the film festival.
