Canon is once again launching its photo-inspiring-film, user-generated assignment with director Ron Howard called, Project Imagination. Last year was their inaugural project launch where they collected submitted photos that inspired a short film called, “when you find me.” Directed by Bryce Dallas Howard (28:44 – watch it below):
- Setting – Any location or environment
- Time – Represents time of day or within history
- Character – Can be anyone or anything
- Mood – Conveys atmosphere, tone or emotion
- Backstory – A history that promotes fuller understanding of the narrative
- Relationship – A relationship between anyone or anything
- Goal – Whatever the character is pursuing
- Obstacle – Anyone or anything in the character’s way
- The unknown – Can be anything unexpected, a twist
- ? – The 10th theme will be revealed at a later date (TBA in September)
A judging panel will then select the finalists. Ron Howard and a public vote will determine the winners. Then, 5 celebrity directors – actors Jamie Foxx, Eva Longoria, musician James Murphy, fashion designer Georgina Chapman and Twitter cofounder Biz Stone – will choose 10 photos, one per theme, which will inspire their upcoming films.
