A Day in the Life

Your first task is to create a short video that captures a day in your life in isolation. Think of yourself as a documentary filmmaker – don’t try and stage or pre-plan anything! Use your creativity to find the most interesting ways to capture what is going on around you. On the last 3 videos of the day you will be asked to speak some of your reflections on the day. This is your lasting record of A Day in the Life in an unprecedented time in history. Capture it as honestly as you can.


Here is Nishna to tell you all about it!




An example from Nishna


Remember in your last three videos include…

One change you have noticed in your day…

I wish…

I miss…



Tips and Tricks

Below are some links to assist you with video merging – Ask an adult or older sibling to give you a helping hand if you need!


Video merging online – Kapwing is a collaborative platform for creating images and videos – https://www.kapwing.com/

Uploading – When uploading try and make your file 20MB or less. Sometimes videos take a little while to upload, so just make sure you are patient. You are also more than welcome to upload onto your personal YouTube or Vimeo and send us the link through the submission form.

Compressing – Is your file a little bit too big to upload to the website? Try reducing the file size with this link! – https://www.freeconvert.com/video-compressor

Exporting – Export your work as an MP4 or convert to an MP4 – https://www.media.io/convert/mov-to-mp4.html

Videos aren’t your thing? You can complete A Day in the Life task by taking a photo every hour. Make a collage of your images with a quote about what you miss, a wish or a change you have noticed.
