YouTube wants your quarantine videos (and more) for Life in a Day 2020



YouTube wants your quarantine videos

A decade ago, filmmakers Ridley Scott and Kevin Macdonald partnered with to invite people around the world to film themselves over a single day, with the resulting documentary, Life in a Day, capturing a tapestry of ordinary life across the globe as it was on July 24, 2010. Now, they need your help to do it again.

YouTube announced today that Scott and Macdonald are calling for submissions for a new documentary, Life in a Day 2020, which will once again weave together footage to tell the story of a single day on Earth. People worldwide are encouraged to film themselves on Saturday, July 25 (10 years and one day after the original’s filming date), and document their ordinary, day-to-day life — which, admittedly, is an unusual concept in these extraordinary times. (You can see submission guidelines and more here.)

“I guess any movie reflects its moment, whether you consciously want it to or not, but this even more so. I think it will be a time capsule for the ages,” Macdonald muses. “We’re living through this time of great political upheaval, and that’s maybe at the forefront of our thoughts. But for a lot of people, the lived day-to-day experience, which is what I’m hoping we’ll capture in the film, is not going to be about those big issues, at least not directly. It’s going to be about, you know, ‘it’s bath time for the baby,’ or, ‘what do I do on my Saturday off,’ or, ‘I don’t have enough food to eat, and here’s how I get by.’ I always say to people, ‘What’s boring to you, what’s normal to you, is gonna be fascinating to other people.'”

Life in a Day 2020 will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and on YouTube in 2021. Read on for more from Macdonald on what he hopes the film will accomplish, how the filmmakers shape thousands of hours of submissions into a coherent structure, and why a project like this is still unique in the social media age.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Were you planning on making a follow-up to Life in a Day before the pandemic hit?

KEVIN MACDONALD: We’d talked about it immediately after making the first one, and intermittently, I discussed it or it came up in conversation. But I think it only became real just around the time the pandemic hit — this would be three months ago. We were actually assuming, when we started talking, that the pandemic would be over by the time we came to our filming date, and it would not be a dominant aspect of people’s lives in the way that it still is.

What else went into the decision to do a follow-up film?

I grew up watching the Seven Up films by Michael Apted, and I always thought, “God, I would love to have done something like that.” I think this might be my version of that. I’m hoping that all the original contributors will film themselves again, and we’ll see how things have changed for them. And also, I’m hoping that we will get a much wider reach of people this time, because 10 years ago, 50% of the contributions were from the U.S. There were a lot of technological and economic reasons why that was the case — smartphones with video cameras, or actual video cameras, were more [common] in America. Now, you go pretty much anywhere in the world, everybody has a smartphone, sending photos and video of their baby to their aunts and their cousins.

On that note, social media has given us more and more access to people’s daily lives since the first film came out. What makes this project unique now that that sort of thing is much more ubiquitous?

What I’m hoping is that we can have a degree of integrity and honesty in the relationship people have to the camera, and what they film, that maybe social media doesn’t always apply. Many people’s social media is about presenting the perfect version of their lives and themselves. This is about honesty, and about simplicity. We want to see what life is really like for you. And it’s also about putting together the patterns, so we can see how things happening in one person’s social media feed are contrasted or echoed by what’s happening in Bangalore, or in Bangkok. That’s something that only a project like this can do.

How do you go about finding those patterns, and making something structured and coherent out of such a sheer volume of disconnected footage?

When we first did it, we had to invent a new way of editing, in a sense. We hired 25 or 30 assistants from all around the world, who spoke multiple languages. And as the material came in, we divided up, gave it to these assistant editors, and they catalogued it by key words and themes, and also, crucially, by quality. They would give it a star rating, from one to five. Five being, you know, “I’ll stake my children’s life on the fact that this is gonna be in the final film,” and one being, “Don’t even bother getting out of bed to watch this.”

The thing is, you know what the gold is when you see it: the character who really stands out, the person who says something so brutally honest and truthful that you’re just knocked back in your seat. And there’s not going to be a lot of that. That first time, there were four and a half thousand hours of material, and I think I watched 250 hours, which was all of the four- and five-star material. Any film you make, there are only a certain number of really golden moments.

What else did you learn from making the first film that you can apply this time around?

You know, when people started shooting their own lives to such a big extent, a lot of filmmakers felt quite threatened. Like, “Oh my God, what’s special about what we do?” But I think [Life in a Day] made me realize that actually, us filmmakers do have a skill to be able to tell a story, and not everyone can do that. And I think that the beauty of this is that, even if you can’t tell a story, you can shoot something which can be part of this bigger story. We encourage people not to cut the material they send us. Just send us the raw material, and then we can help them find the story, or where that fits into the jigsaw puzzle of the piece.

What do you want to say to people who might want to participate?

This is gonna be a rare opportunity to make a film which is an act of generosity to the world. And also, which is an even rarer opportunity, to make a kind of experimental poem financed by a big corporation. It’s a genuine piece of art, as well as being a time capsule of our times. And so I hope that people who are interested in human beings like I am, interested in recording the beauty and the mysteries of ordinary life, will take part, but also people who are aspiring filmmakers or are filmmakers, who want to shoot something. I hope that they’ll feel that there’s something exciting about the idea of this, and worthwhile.

Lionel Messi Biography



Lionel Messi Biography

Lionel Messi is an Argentinian footballer widely regarded as one of the greatest players of the modern generation. He plays for FC Barcelona and the Argentina national team. He has won FIFA world player of the year four times (a record already). He has often been described as Diego Maradona’s successor because of his prolific goal scoring record and ability to dribble past opponents.“I have seen the player who will inherit my place in Argentine football and his name is Messi. Messi is a genius, and he can become an even better player.”

His potential is limitless, and I think he’s got everything it takes to become Argentina’s greatest player.”

– Diego Maradona

hort Biography Lionel Messi


Lionel Messi was born, 24 June 1987, in Rosario, Argentina to a working-class family. His father was a factory steel worker, and his mother a cleaner.

He began playing from an early age, and his talent was soon apparent. However, at the age of 11, Messi was diagnosed with growth hormone deficiency (GHD). This was a condition that stunted growth and required expensive medical treatment, including the use of the drug Human growth hormone.








His local club, River Plate were interested in signing Messi but didn’t want to pay for his medical treatment. However, Messi was given a trial with Barcelona, and coach Carles Rexach was impressed – offering Messi a contract (written on a paper napkin!) which included paying for Messi’s treatment in Spain. Messi moved to Barcelona with his father and became part of the prestigious FC Barcelona youth academy.

“I made a lot of sacrifices by leaving Argentina, leaving my family to start a new life. But everything I did, I did for football, to achieve my dream. That’s why I didn’t go out partying, or do a lot of other things.”

– Lionel Messi


Messi progressed through the ranks and was given his first appearance in the 2004/05 season becoming the youngest player to score a league goal. In 2006, Messi was part of the double winning team which won both La Liga (Spanish League) and Champions League. By next season, (2006-07) aged just 20, Messi was the first choice striker and an essential part of the Barcelona team – scoring 14 goals in 26 league games.

In the 2009-10 season, Messi scored 47 goals in all competitions, equalling Ronaldo’s record total for Barcelona. As the seasons have progressed, Messi kept improving and breaking his own records. In the calendar year of 2012, he broke the all-time world record for most goals scored in a calendar year. His final total of goals in 2012 was 91 – beating the previous record of 85 by German Gerd Muller, and Pele’s milestone of 75 in 1958.

“My record stood for 40 years – 85 goals in a year – and now the best player in the world has broken it, and I’m delighted for him. He is an incredible player, gigantic.”

– Gerd Muller

At the start of 2013, in club football, Messi has scored 292 goals from a total of 359 appearances, and in international football, 31 goals from 76 appearances.

At the end of 2012, Messi turned down a very lucrative offer to play for an unnamed Russian side. It would have given Messi a salary of €20 million a year and made Messi the most expensive player in the world (Barcelona would have been paid €250 million). He turned down the offer because he was unsure if he would be playing in major European championships and the difficulties in moving to Russia. Instead, he signed a contract with Barcelona until the end of 2018. When asked about moving to the English Premier League, Messi revealed his sense of commitment to Barcelona.

Barcelona is my life. They have brought me to where I am today. I could not leave, I don’t want to leave. I know the Premier League is very good. But I cannot see myself playing in England because my heart is with Barcelona, always.”

– Lionel Messi

International Career

Because Messi was brought up in Spain, since he was 11 years old, he has Spanish nationality. In 2004, he was offered the chance to play for Spain’s Under 20 side, but Messi decided to play for Argentina, the country of his birth. He led Argentina to victory in the 2005 FIFA Youth Championship. Messi made his full international debut in August 2005, during a friendly against Hungary. In his first game, Messi was sent off for allegedly elbowing a player. The decision was contentious and not in keeping with Messi’s style of play which is generally clean and in the spirit of fair play; he has very rarely been accused of diving.

In 2006, he participated in the World Cup, becoming Argentina’s youngest player to play in the world cup. Argentina were eliminated in the quarter-finals. In 2008, he won an Olympic gold medal for Argentina in football at the Beijing Olympics. Initially, Barcelona had not allowed him permission to play, but new coach Pep Guardiola allowed him time off.

In the 2010 World Cup, Messi wore the number 10 shirt and played well to help Argentina reach the quarter-finals, but Messi struggled to score, and Argentina disappointingly lost 4-0 to Germany in the quarter-final. Messi has admitted he is desperate to play in a world cup final. Success for Messi in the World Cup would be the last test of greatness. Pele, by contrast, was part of Brazil’s three times winning World Cup side ’58, ’62 and ’70.

Messi is widely regarded as one of the most exciting players of the modern age – in fact, any age. He has a peerless ability to dribble and take on opponents. Maradona has described his ball control as supremely good. “The ball stays glued to his foot; I’ve seen great players in my career, but I’ve never seen anyone with Messi’s ball control.” Messi has said he wishes to retain the joy of how a child plays football

“I have changed nothing, my style of play is still that of a child. I know that above all it is my job and that I should approach it in another way, but one must not lose sight of the fact that football is a game. It is imperative one plays to amuse oneself, to be happy. That is what children do and I do the same thing.” (total Barca)

– Lionel Messi

After winning the Ballon d’Or for the fourth time in January 2013, Messi said:

“To tell you the truth this is really quite unbelievable. The fourth award that I have had is just too great for words. ” (BBC)

Messi and Ronaldo

Messi has often been compared to prolific Real Madrid goalscorer Christiano Ronaldo, but both have been keen to downplay the rivalry.

“Messi has his personality and I have mine. He has his game and I have mine. I also play in a big club like him. We are different in every aspect. But right now, he is the best.”

By any standards, Messi’s goal scoring record is exceptional. By June 2019, he has scored 419 goals in 445 official matches for Barcelona FC.

    • In 2012/13, Messi set an all-time world record of scoring in 21 consecutive games (33 goals from 21 games)
    • He holds the Guinness World Record for most goals in a calendar year – 91 goals during 2012.
    • He is the only player to score in four consecutive Champions League campaigns.
    • His international record for Argentina is 68 goals from 133 appearances.

  • 2006 World Cup – QF
  • 2010 World Cup – QF

  • 2018 World Cup

Wealth and income

Messi has frequently been the target of other football clubs with big transfer budgets, but he has remained loyal to Barcelona FC. He is one of the highest paid footballers in the world. His base salary is estimated at €40 million per year. His combined income 2018 from all sources was €126m. This made him the highest paid sports star – according to Forbes. From 2018, his weekly salary from Barcelona is $667,000 per week.

Private life

By the standards of modern football, Messi has a relatively private and modest lifestyle. He makes efforts to keep links to his hometown of Rosario. He has an Argentinian girlfriend Antonella Roccuzzo, and they have two children. His first child Thiago was born in November 2012.

Messi acts as an ambassador for Unicef, and also runs his own charitable foundation – supporting access to education and sport for children. Because of his own expensive medical treatment, he has also helped Argentinian hospitals with paying for similar treatment to his own.

World Cup 2014

Many commentators have stated that Lionel Messi has performed at his best in all competitions, except the World Cup. In both the 2006 and 2010 World Cup, Argentina were knocked out in the quarter-finals, with Messi not at his best.

The 2014 World Cup in Brazil is an opportunity for Messi to make an impact on the highest stage of them all. In the opening game against, Bosnia – Herzegovina, Messi scored a great goal to give Argentina a winning start. He scored four goals to help Argentina reach the World Cup Final. In the final, Argentina lost 1-0 to Germany. Messi was awarded ‘Golden Ball’ player of the tournament, though the decision was not universally supported. After the tournament, Messi replied:

“I do not care about the Golden Ball. I am just upset by the wasted chances. We had the best chances. We knew we could not dominate the game but we knew what we wanted to do. Right now I do not care about my prize. I just wanted to lift the cup and bring it to Argentina. The pain is very great.”

In June 2016, a very disappointed Messi announced his retirement from international football, after missing a penalty as Argentina got knocked out of the Copa America final. However, Messi later reversed his decision, saying he loved playing for Argentina too much, and “I see there are many problems in Argentinian football and I don’t intend to create another one.”

However, Messi returned to international football and led Argentina in the 2018 World Cup. Despite carrying the weight of expectation of a nation, the World Cup was considered a great dissappointment. However, in the 2018/19 season Messi returned to his usual scintillating performance with Barcelona.
