The editors chose such sweet and interesting video entries. The project was very cleverly put together--all the early-morning clips, followed by the wake-up clips, then breakfast clips, etc.--as if we were moving through one day (which we actually are!!). The soundtrack is perfect--not distracting, but enhancing the mood. The closing clip is so perfect one might wonder if it was scripted, but I know it was not. You will smile while watching the video, and your heart will be warmed by the experience. What a wonderful world we live in, peopled by individuals just like us--we all sleep and eat and laugh and cry and worry and rejoice. I applaud the conceptualizers of this project!!

The documentary, Life in a Day, by Kevin Macdonald was very interesting and entertaining, and I would recommend it to anyone. People from all around the world sent him videos, and he composed them all together to create this movie about one specific day. This documentary elicits many emotions from its viewers, because it shows many different parts and aspects of the world, and it really makes viewers appreciate what they have. The movie was not at all polemical, because even the people who had difficult lives were living, and the videos shown were sympathetic and interesting. There were people that were happy and celebrating, and there were also people who were moribund. Some people were going through an honest day of work, and others were complicit in an illegal act. The extreme variations among these videos made the movie so diverse and entertaining to watch.

Because this movie was created overwhelmingly by people, it is difficult to judge and rate; therefore, I judge it's humanistic value - and this movie excels. The one factor that as done "professionally" was the editing - and while good, the editing is not the focus nor is it distracting from the film. Therefore, the editing is too minimal to judge or rate... leaving only the humanistic value unscathed at a 5.0. This is a movie about people by people.

In early July of 2010, YouTube and Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions launched a project asking the popular website's users to submit videos of themselves, filmed on July 24. The goal was to collect as many videos from as many different places in the world and compile the best ones into a sort of video art piece directed by Kevin Macdonald. The response, as one might imagine, was overwhelming, with 80,000 submissions from 192 countries totaling over 4,500 hours of footage, and the result was Life in a Day. It would be easy to dismiss something like this as a mere indulgence, inaccessible and inscrutable to most who might attempt a viewing, but I felt differently; Life in a Day ultimately proved to be a rather moving and poignant experience for me. This film may be a thought-provoking capsule of daily life everywhere on Earth, or it may simply be a stream of consciousness glimpse at an increasingly tech-savvy generation; it's up t you to see for yourself and decide.

This is an amazing feat by You-Tube and National Geographic. The idea of piecing one day from around the world into quick snapshots is wonderful. This film takes you around the world; getting an inside peak into troubled times (breast cancer), to the simple joys of life (a camp fire). You can see yourself in other cultures in the smiles and laughing to the heartache of feeling alone and lost. A very moving conglomeration of people and places pulled together from hours and hours of footage into this one movie. You realize again, how close we really are and alike to each other; the family we make as one.

Life in a Day, directed by Kevin Macdonald is a spectacular movie about the different cultures on our planet. It's really incredible how different everyone on our planet is, how some people act, how some people live is so inspirational. There were many different people shown in this movie. The most incredible and motivational was a man from Korea biking around the world. The film crew did an exceptional job in getting different angles and different views of gigantic crowds, following a single person running through a city, and just in general getting videos around the world.
Earth is full of different species of animals, plants, bacteria and more. I think the weirdest of them all is humans. Every one of us is different and everyone thinks that one culture is either wrong or strange. Examples of this are the Israeli and Arab conflict. There was one scene that really grabbed my attention. There was a man probably in his early to mid-twenties they showed him doing parkour, parkour is a kind of running where you try and get somewhere as fast as possible. It involves jumping off of high bases and balancing on basically nothing. This though fun to watch was not what caught my attention. After all of his running he walks into a grocery store and starts looking around, he picks up food, takes it and leaves. He does not pay doesn't give them anything. This shows how some people live in basically nothing and need to steal to survive.
There was, at one point, a part about what people most love. Basically the whole part was a slideshow of people stating their most loved things on earth. Some people said family, some said life, it is incredible how many various responses you get. There was also a segment on what people most feared.
