Life in a day

Life in a day, a well edited and poetic crowdsourced documentary film made by Kevin Macdonald. Nice perspective on small things adding up… I wondered whether some of the footage were shot by the production team. The quality of the material is very good in parts of the film. But except from 400 cameras being sendt to developing countries with instructions, it seems that the team hasn’t contributed directly. The editor, Joe Walker, started with 4500 hours of material and puh… he commented this work in the NYT: “The analogy is like being told to make Salisbury Cathedral, and then being introduced to a field full of rubble. You have to start looking for buttresses and things that connect together.”
