Ridley Scott To Produce The Crowdsourced Documentary 'India In A Day'!

By Srikanth Kanchinadham. Posted on September 29, 2015

Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions is inviting aspiring filmmakers to shoot a documentary titled India In A Day. The production company founded by filmmakers and brothers Ridley Scott and the late Tony Scott, wants everyone with a camera to shoot a film; on any aspect that showcases the rapid development India is witnessing.

India In A Day wishes to capture the variety, diversity and soul of India by showing what people hope for and what they want to achieve or change in the country. This will then become a part of the crowdsourced documentary, which will exhibit the events happening in India on the 10th of October, 2015. This video could also be edited into a new film by acclaimed director Richie Mehta, which can have its premiere in 2016.

What Can You Do?

All you need is a camera and the zeal to showcase your vision. From portraying how you socialize with your friends, family to your work life and aspirations, filmmakers can shoot their lives or somebody else's and let the world know what India is all about

You can make it more interesting by highlighting the things you love or the issues that concern you about India. Simply put you have to capture a moment of time as seen by thousands of people, all across India. This will then be included to a time capsule of what life was really like in India on the 10th of October, 2015.

People sending in their entries can shoot it on a smartphone, a point and shoot camera, a DSLR or an even more professional camera.

You could watch Life In A Day, the first in this series of crowd sourced films to get a better idea of how you could shoot your film.

When Is It Happening?

The crowdsourced documentary on India should be shot on 10th of October.
