Ridley Scott asks everyone to send him videos taken today

Director Ridley Scott is asking people to take part in a unique crowdsourced documentary project to mark this extraordinary year.

By weaving together people's videos from around the world it will create 'Life in a Day, 2020' showing the world in a 24-hour period, which is today.

People can upload their submissions to YouTube, with the final product will be screened at the Sundance Film Festival next year.

In a promo for the project, collaborator Kevin McDonald said everyone can take part:

"It is called Life in a Day 2020 and it is a crowd sourced documentary and it is a portrait of the world in a single day.

"Anybody and everybody is relevant to this film no matter what your experience is."
