Ron Howard and his hyper-creative gang have teamed up with Canon to give a deductive twist to storytelling. Ninety-one winning photographs have been chosen to boost your imagination, chosen after a wave of photographic submissions themed after the 10 tenets of storytelling: Mood, Goal, Backstory, Character, Obstacle, Relationship, Setting and The Unknown.
The participants choose 10 of the photos that will inspire their short film submissions, no more than 10 minutes in length. Films will be judged based on creative use of the 10 photos, originality, technical quality and overall impression.
There are also five celebrity directors participating: Eva Longoria, Jamie Foxx, twitter co-founder Biz Stone, Georgina Chapman of Marchesa and James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem. Each of them have already chosen their 10 photos and are currently letting their creative juices run loose on their filmic journey. Submission deadline is July 23, so now it's your turn to sit in the director's chair; for more information and helpful tips and film techniques by Bryce Dallas Howard, go to longliveimagination.com. Five winning films will be chosen to join the celebrity directors’ films as part of A Ron Howard Presentation. All 10 films will be screened at the highly anticipated Canon Project Imaginat10n Film Festival, and each winner will receive $5,000.
