Life in a Day • WA Afternoons on ABC Perth

24 July 2020 1:52 pm

What if we could capture what the world was doing all on the same day?

That’s the philosophy behind Life in a Day, an ambitious film project from producer Ridley Scott and directed by Kevin Macdonald.

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

But in the midst of these extraordinary events, everyday life still continues.

Anyone can participate and submissions from all over the world will be woven together to create a feature film, produced by Ridley Scott, directed by Kevin Macdonald, filmed by you, and premiering at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.

It was great to join WA Afternoons on ABC Perth to talk about the Life in a Day campaign and breakdown how it works, and how you can be involved on July 25.

Learn more about filming requirements and how to take part.

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