Fuji Television and Scott Free London are teaming for “Japan In A Day”, a 24-hour self-portrait of the country in memory of the earthquake and tsunami that struck a year ago says Deadline.
The film is akin to the “Life In A Day” project which premiered at Sundance last year and had Kevin Macdonald directing and Ridley Scott executive producing. Scott will return in the same capacity, no word on who will be directing.
Beginning midnight March 11, participants will capture the day and upload footage to an account on Youtube.
Two-hundred cameras are being donated to people in the most affected areas of the country. Fuji TV will select the best material to complete a feature to debut at cinemas worldwide, and all profits from the film will be given to victims.
