The World's Largest Time Capsule

CNN’S Josh Levs introduces the film “Life in a Day” by the National Geographic and YouTube. The film started off as a project last year where famous filmmakers asked people from all over the world to tape what it was like to be them for one day. Director Kevin MacDonald chose the day July 24, 2010 as the day the largest time capsule would be made. From marriage, to traveling and even being homeless, people put together their tape and uploaded thousands of hours that MacDonald and producer Ridley Scott made into a film.

Both MacDonald and Scott created a YouTube video in 2010 to promote the film. In MacDonald’s YouTube post, he laid out the format of the film and what he wanted from all of those who would contribute. Producer Scott said that “it should be personal and must be personal” when he spoke to viewers on YouTube last year. The film is available in select theaters across the U.S. until September 8, 2011.
