[July 08, 2010]  NEW YORK (AP) -- YouTube is making a movie with the help of director Kevin Macdonald, producer Ridley Scott and a few hundred other filmmakers.

HardwareYouTube is owned by Mountain View, Calif.-based Google Inc. It's organizing the creation of "Life in a Day," a project documenting July 24 with user-submitted videos from around the world. It's asking people to upload footage of their daily lives.

Macdonald directed "The Last King of Scotland." He'll serve as director of the YouTube project and will edit together a feature-length documentary from the submitted material. Scott produced "Robin Hood" and will produce the YouTube project.

The film will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January. It will be streamed on YouTube simultaneously.
