Google has announced today that it is launching an historic film project titled ‘India in a Day’ in partnership with filmmakers Ridley Scott, Richie Mehta and Anurag Kashyap. This film is supposed to capture the essence of evolving India across 24 hours. Google has invited everyone across India to capture the best possible shoot of their day on 10 October.
Participants can shoot their footage and upload it on http://indiainaday.withgoogle.com on Saturday, 10th October 2015. Those whose footage makes it into the finished film will be credited as a “co-director,” getting a chance to feature in the first user-generated feature-length documentary shot in a single day on life in India. The film is scheduled for release in 2016.
As per Sandeep Menon, Director Marketing Google India “India stands at a unique moment in its history: a time of great change, sparked by technology. With the smartphone revolution transforming every aspect of our lives, from the mundane to the profound. We are very excited to partner on this project to help showcase the story of evolving India and look forward to sharing this experience with everyone.”
India in a Day will be directed by Richie Mehta (I’ll Follow You Down, Siddharth, Amal) and executive produced by Ridley Scott (Exodus: Gods and Kings, The Martian, Gladiator) and Anurag Kashyap (Gangs of Wasseypur (I & II), Dev. D, Ugly). R.Balki, Shekhar Kapur and Zoya Akhtar will serve as creative consultants.
