Life in a Day film festival premiere full movie - watch now complete cinematic documentary of 24 July 2010

This documentary film is also available at

This is "My Life in a Day" or "Every Frame is a Word of Love" movie by Alex Kudinov and kids. It is streamed at and features home page of "Life in a Day Film Festival" web site at .

This full-length no-edit no-cut (except of the soundtrack and five or so seconds of my daugther hand drawing) six hour video premiere (to be precise this is 5 hours 59 min and 58 seconds and 24 frames, encoded to 5:59:57 video at youtube ) represents A Koudinov nine and a half hours of filming time on 24 July 2010, 14:30 to midnight, 24:00. This is Low Resolution 320x240 wmv LAN format (yet additionally edited at final seconds, after another first upload of 4.5 Gb video of original 640x480 resolution failed on January 26, 2011) edition of the documentary film, thanks to the project by Youtube, Oscar winning director Kevin McDonald and producer Ridley Scott, with whom, however, Alexei Kudinov has no affiliation.

Life in a Day is a historic Global experiment and a new filmmaking experience of human beings invented at youtube by Director Kevin MacDonald, Producer Ridley Scott, Editor Joe Walker and their London based production team, held worlwide on Saturday, July 24, 2010.

On that day YouTube user's community was asked to make raw footage of their lives and then submit it (within one week, by July 31, 2010) to Life in a Day project at ). Organizers got over 80,000 clips of about 4500 hours raw footage, that was first narrowed to a 100 hours selection and then yielded 90 min documentary film (comprising 331 clips, as reported by Google Russia) to premiere today at Sundance Film festival in Park City, Utah, USA on January 27, 2011 5pm local time.

Alex Kudinov builds his documentary on his own 6 hours footage of Life in a Day Day of 24 July 2010. Mr. Kudinov footage was initially arranged (and cut a bit) to yield 29 clips, about 10 minutes each, uploaded to his youtube channel and submitted to LIAD project before deadline of 31/07/2010. This 29 video clips were earlier presented as a playlist at his youtube channel and is streamed as a complete film at

While at the last week of July 2010 youtube lifted standard video length from 10 to 15 min, it was not properly announced, so, the majority of submitted to Life in a Day video clips are less then 10 minutes.

Interestingly, three videos by Alexei were selected by Kevin McDonald for the project. Correspondingly, raw footage was uploaded to Life in a Day FTP server during September 2010. These three 10 min clips total 30 minutes video, and therefore represent 0.5% of 100 hours raw footage selection by Kevin McDonald team. These clips begin at time stamp 5 h 13 min (requested by Kevin Macdonald and the Life in a Day production team videoclip 1, clip number 11497-3), at 0 h 21 min 38 sec (requested videoclip 2, clip # 11497-28) and at 4 h 29 min 31 sec (raw footage video 3, # 11497-8).

Professionally, the video explains why by year 2010 there is still no cure for Alzheimer's disease (begins at 39 min 54 sec).

Included is also a call for youtube to provide an essential new feature of this major video sharing web service (at 32 min time stamp)

Life can change in seconds, hours, or on a single day. My life changed again on July 24th, 2010, which just happened to be the day of the "Life in a Day" film project. I found out about the project early that morning, almost last minute in my mind. I live in NYC, but was in North Carolina visiting my ex boyfriend, who I truly thought wanted to build a real friendship after two years of not speaking to each other. There are just some people you don't want to lose out of your life, and he was one of those people. But you can't hold on to someone who isn't holding on to you. It was heartbreaking to realize that for whatever reason, he couldn't - or wouldn't - act as a real friend, and in that realization I knew that I could no longer let him be in my life. Knowing that I would have to say goodbye to him once again, was heartbreaking, even though I knew it was for the best. And that realization only added fuel to the fire of my deepest fear of being insignificant, irrelevant, and ultimately unloved. Yet despite the sadness of that day, and the days after it, and despite that fear I'll always have to stare down, I do find joy and laughter in the smallest things, especially in the innocence of children, who still believe that the world is a magical place.

Major feelings: Thinking, Talking, Crying, Sadness, Laughter

In a small backyard, connected in the distance to many others, a woman walks through her lush garden. On this particular morning, in a suburban neighbourhood, the overcast sky predicts rain. Capturing uneventful scenes such as these, the film contemplates the significance of these simple, everyday moments. With an aim to embrace whatever circumstances the day presented, while going about doing necessary tasks and errands, the camera enters one person’s world and reveals something of what it means to be. Listening in and watching clients at a hair salon, the camera follows a woman through the back door, downstairs to an alleyway and a glimpse into a barbershop. A visit with two elderly sisters in a nursing home reveals a space full of memories and physical limitations.

The circumstances of this day, in this particular place, involved a lot of rain. The film focuses on visual and aural images of rain pouring down on cars, puddles, parking lots, on gardens and lawns. The ominous clouds in the distance don’t stop a group of children from enjoying the downpour while playing in a wading pool. The commotion of the rain has people rushing into a grocery store. The calm when it subsides shows order restored. After the rain, rabbits scurry across a lawn, birds sing and more weeding needs to be done. The same yard starts to darken, doors slam shut as the day nears an end. Somewhere else a new day is about to begin or is mid-way through, but on this street, a full moon has risen in the sky as cars drive past silent houses.

Major feelings: serenity, contemplative

I made this film to reflect elements of my personality, my love for films and to acknowledge all families before my Wedding on the 28th August 2010. I did eventually run out of time and didn't get chance to complete my vision, which would have been dramatisation of meeting my spirit guide Freddie, who does at least get a mention. Yes, I admit I broke some of the rules, but I had so much fun making this film, I couldn't break the ride. I hope you like it.

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.
