Local video selected for Youtube feature film

Remember when acclaimed producer Ridley Scott and Kevin Macdonald called on the youtube community to submit their “Life in a Day” video from July 24, 2010? Since then the team has cut down more than 80,000 submissions into a 90 minute documentary that will premiere at Sundance.

I’m happy to report that the submission from Milinda Jefferson and Jerome Bourgeois from DC was one of the clips chosen! Milinda told me their July 24th was spent at the Weekend of Remembrance. It’s a weekend set aside to honor families of fallen military members. Milinda spent the day promoting the Honor and Remember flag which you’ll see often in the raw footage I’ve posted below. How much of their clips will make it to the big screen..we’ll have to wait and see. Congrats and thank you for always keeping our brave men and women and their families in your thoughts and prayers.

ESPN says Robert De Niro will be Vince Lombardi in a new movie it’s making with help from the NFL. The film titled “Lombardi” will document the years he spent with Green Bay taking it from zero to hero, turning one of the worst teams into the best.” Eric Roth the guy who wrote “Forrest Gump” also signed on to the project.
