Australian content premieres at Sundance Film Festival as part of Life in a Day
Sydney, Australia, 01st Feb 2011 - Ron's Diary, an Australian short film has been selected as a part of 'Life in a Day' and has premiered at the Sundance Film Festival at the Eccles Theatre on January 27.
Ron's Diary is a day in the life of Ron Coker when he was in the Cardiac Care Ward at the Prince of Wales Hospital recovering from a heart bypass. It is a touching film about human emotions and thoughts when faced with a life-threatening illness. The content was shot by Anmol Mishra. The film utilised HDSLR's - a Canon 7D and a Panasonic
DMC-GH1, and a consumer mic - the iRiver ifp-895, for production.
Life In A Day is a historic global experiment to create a user-generated feature film shot in a single day. On July 24, users had 24 hours to capture a glimpse of their life on camera. The most compelling and distinctive footage was edited into a feature film, produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Kevin Macdonald.
Commenting on Ron's Diary, Kevin MacDonald wrote -
"(Ron's Diary) is one of our absolute favourite's and features prominently in the finished film. … It has had people in tears here at the office!"
The film will show theatrically in Australia later in the year. Ron's Diary was used in the teaser video for 'Life in a Day'. The teaser has generated almost 2 million views since it went live on Youtube.
