The one-year anniversary of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami is March 11. In memory of the disaster, Fuji Television and Ridley and Tony Scott’s Scott Free London are embarking on Japan In A Day, a 24-hour self-portrait of the country filmed by the public based on the Life In A Day series. Beginning at midnight March 11, participants will capture the day and upload footage to YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/JapanInADay. Fuji will donate 200 cameras to people in the most affected areas of the country, and the gathered footage as well as Fuji TV’s coverage from the day will also be submitted. Fuji TV plans to select the best material to complete a feature, which will debut at cinemas worldwide. All profits from the film will be given to victims. Scott will executive produce the project, as he did for the first installment in the series, which was directed by Kevin Macdonald and premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Here’s that trailer:
