Google in partnership with filmmakers Ridley Scott, Richie Mehta and Anurag Kashyap is coming out with a film project titled ‘India in a Day’ that will capture the essence of evolving India across 24 hours.

The project is asking everyone across India to grab a camera and film their day on October 10th. The project will reach out to communities across the country to capture their day.

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.

Sandeep Menon, Director-Marketing, Google India, said, “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.”
