“You can film the ordinary — a sunrise, the commute to work, a neighbourhood soccer match, or the extraordinary — a baby’s first steps, your reaction to the passing of a loved one, or even a marriage,” Tim Partridge, product marketing manager, YouTube, has said. “The film will premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and if your footage makes it into the final cut, you will be credited as a co-director and may be one of 20 contributors selected to attend the premiere.”
