Now, all director Kevin Macdonald needs to do is turn the 4,600 hours of footage into a documentary film. The first step will be to cull down the raw material into just 100 hours of footage.
Then, Macdonald will boil that down into a final, feature-length film, that will premiere in January at the Sundance Film Festival and on the YouTube website.
According to AP, user contributions were submitted from 197 countries in 45 languages by last weekend's deadline. The submissions will be available for viewing when the gallery goes live next month on YouTube's "Life in a Day" channel.
In case you missed it, "Life in a Day" is an experiment aimed at capturing life globally on a single day, Saturday, July 24, 2010.
