What 1 ordinary day can tell you about how people are connected around the world

February 2021

On July 25, 2020, the world came together to tell the story of a single day. As part of YouTube Originals’ follow-up to its 2010 film “Life in a Day,“ thousands of people from all over the globe picked up their cameras and shared their unique, authentic experiences in that way that only video can capture. Whether it’s a couple in the throes of infertility or sky divers reaching new heights, watching their stories across borders and circumstances gives us a glimpse into what connects all of us in this unprecedented time in history.

For marketers, “Life in a Day 2020“ — directed by Kevin Macdonald and produced by Ridley Scott — is an opportunity to both understand a moment in time and explore how the democratization of storytelling, by way of digital video, continues to push the limits on craft, culture, and connection.
