Must Watch: Wonderful Trailer for YouTube Created 'Life in a Day'
Where Were You on July 24th, 2010? National Geographic Ent. has debuted (via Vulture) the first trailer for Life in a Day, the YouTube project that combined 80,000 video submissions from one day, July 24th last year, into a feature length film. As described, "a groundbreaking, feature-length documentary that portrays this kaleidoscope of images we call life." This premiere at Sundance and though I sadly missed it, it got rave reviews, including this one from Anne Thompson. This just looks beautiful, awe-inspiring in a way, I high suggest watching it even if you have no clue what to expect. I cannot wait to see this, it looks extraordinary.
