Five years since the first User-Generated Content movie was launched, we feel it’s time to celebrate and pay tribute to this brave act of showcasing Life In a Day around the planet.
To mark the 5th year anniversary of YouTube’s first ever UGC film, we’re creating the sequel, on the same day, 5 years later. We’d like to invite you to take part, by documenting your own life on this day.
UGC movies are peculiar and more interesting than you think
To get involved and be part of ‘Life in a Day 2’ we dare you to film yourself on Sunday, 24th July 2016, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing. Don’t forget, it’s meant to be a glimpse into your daily routine so all you really need is to be yourself and have a digital camera, be it a phone camera, a GoPro or professional camera. It should be approximately 1- 5 minutes. We’ll choose and buy the best 20 videos which we’ll be editing into a full-length film. The deadline to submit your entry is Tuesday, 26th July, 8pm latest. The final film will be edited and showcased across various social media channels.
