Google has invited India’s amateur filmmakers to a help create a full-length user-generated movie about daily life in the country.
In the project, called “India in a Day,” anyone can grab a camera or a phone to capture scenes from ordinary life on Oct. 10, and then upload their footage to http://indiainaday.withgoogle.com .
Selected clips will be made into a film under the guidance of directors Ridley Scott, Richie Mehta and Anurag Kashyap. Contributors will be listed as “co-directors,” according to a press release from Google Inc.
Scott said it did not matter how small or personal the footage was — from riding a bike to calling one’s mother.
The film is scheduled for release next year.
