YouTube Coming To A Theatre Near You
It’s about time we promoted YouTube. Lord knows we all use them enough. Yes, we’ve all seen the cat playing the piano, whole armies of people breaking into song at the mall, and the ever popular double rainbow. But what’s coming is totally amazing….
According to TechCrunch.com:
YouTube invited its millions of users around the world to record video footage of their day, and then to submit that footage for a chance to be part of a special documentary called Life In A Day.YouTube has just announced that National Geographic has acquired the rights to distribute the film in the United States, and that it will be coming to movie theaters this summer on July 24, 2011 (one year to the day after the footage in the movie was shot). At this point it isn’t clear how broad the release will be, but fear not — you’ll be able to watch the film very soon on your computer, free of charge.
That’s because YouTube is also streaming the film to mark its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this week. There will be a live stream at youtube.com/lifeinaday that kicks off at 6:00pm MT Jan. 27, which will be followed by a live Q&A from Sundance.
