Do you remember the Day In the Life coffee table books your parents had in their library? So satisfying. We loved those books and would pore over them each day after school in between overzealous bites of our carrot coins and peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

With that in mind, we were delighted to hear that Google and director Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland, Touching the Void, One Day in September) teamed up to produce a Life in a Day, Documenting a Single Day On Earth. Which is just that: one day documented by anyone with a video camera. That footage will then by edited into a single movie. Neat-o.

And that day? Is this week on Saturday, July 24. You will have 24 hours to capture a glimpse of your life (or a life) on camera, any camera. You will need to upload your footage before July 31.
