"Life in a Day" Video Submission of Two Ballroom Dancers from a small lakeside city in Ontario, Canada on Saturday, July 24th, 2010.

Part 1 of 5. The day begins at 8:21 a.m. with a daily ritual of opening up blinds and looking at the bird feeders in the backyard. The sun is shining this morning. The mood, however, is more ""reflective"" as Robert Tang scans a series of dance photographs taken at different moments in time.

Part 2 of 5. The time now is 9:38 a.m. The morning ritual continues with getting out the laptop, waiting for it to warm up, and logging into a social networking website. It's one week after an event that Robert & Beverley had attended, and Robert looks back at the video that has been taken of his and his wife's Ballroom Dancing at the waterfront. That day, there were storms in the afternoon, but miraculously, the weather cleared in the evening. Today, one of their friends are taking them out for dinner at a restaurant close to their home. Robert and Beverley prepare for their visit with the typical household rituals of vacuuming the house, setting up snacks, and cleaning the toilet. The weather outside is looking ""iffy"" as rain clouds start appearing. An unusual number of birds come and go. The doorbell rings...

Part 3 of 5. The time is 3:32 p.m. Robert & Beverley's dance friends have arrived. Outside, gold finches and a sparrow feed on the bird feeder. It is drizzling with rain, so they are unable to sit outside as Robert & Beverley had hoped. The original plan was that after snacks, they would take Robert & Beverley out for dinner at a restaurant in nearby Jordan, Ontario. Their friends, however, announce a ""surprise"" for them. They then head off to the restaurant, engaged in conversation. The clouds look ominous but the rain has temporarily stopped.

Part 4 of 5. After dinner, the friends wait in the lobby area of the restaurant as it is raining outside. After a few minutes, however, the rain clears just enough that they can go into the car. The friends continue on their journey, engaged in more conversation. They talk about how the Niagara area had experienced drought a number of years ago. They take an unexpected detour, but find their way again. The clouds initially looked very omininous but clears again. When they arrive at Niagara Falls, the video camera runs out of battery power. But they have a digital camera and were able to capture the almost full Moon that appears in the sky, as well as a few other ""surprises"".

Part 5 of 5. Upon returning home, Robert picks up his mother's voice mail and returns her call. They engage in deep conversation. The moon is shining brightly outside.

As midnight approaches, Robert and Beverley answer the questions posed by Kevin Macdonald:

""What do you love?"" [Each other. And Dancing - it feels like ""Flying"". I guess that explains our pre-occupation with watching birds. On filming day, there was an unexpected number of birds dropping by - Cardinals, Blue Jays along with Golden Finches, Sparrows, and Crows.]

""What do you fear most in your life today?"" [That the people you care about - friends and especially family - live for a long time and do not suffer.]

""What makes you laugh?"" [Some of Life's unexpected twists and turns. Like our video camera running out of battery power during this filming!]

""What is in your pocket?"" [See video.]

And so ends our ""life in a day"" on Saturday, July 24th, 2010. Did anyone else experience the beauty of Moon in the evening in your part of the world?

Major feelings: Love, Happiness, Laughter, Emotional

Sad example is available to illustrate how youtube partner (partners are those who make money by displaying Google AdSense ads on their videos and youtube pages), is gambling with video titles, tags and video description, so search engines deliver faked results and therefore push away Life in a Day videos by ordinary Youtubers out of reach by a loyal web surfer. See this post for details.

Get wild with your creativity! As of August 14, 2010 in response on youtubers request mission expanded. You now can share here not only the film of raw footage that you uploaded to Youtube by 31 July 2010, but also new edited videos filmed on July 24. While both are required and will be linked to each other, we suggest you share your raw footage film now and have edited film shared whenever you have it.

We also welcome those youtubers, who had very special 24-25 July 2010 weekend (such as wedding, honeymoon or anything else of exceptional personal value), to include July 25 videos in their "Life in a Day" film as well.
