This time around, we're setting out to prove Ron Howard's very own words, "we're all creative." Canon and Ron Howard present Project Imaginat10n: The Film Contest.
After a wave of submissions to the 10 key storytelling themes, the 91 winning photographs have been chosen. These photos will now shape the films of our 5 Celebrity Directors - Eva Longoria, Jamie Foxx, Biz Stone, Georgina Chapman and James Murphy.
But the project continues. We still need 5 more films to complete the film festival. So now it's your turn to sit in the director's chair and create a film inspired by 10 photos. Learn more about the Film Contest in this video from Ron Howard himself.
We'll also be sharing tips and advice from last year's Project Imagin8ion director, Bryce Dallas Howard. Bryce and Ron Howard will help choose the 5 winning user films to be screened alongside our Celebrity Directors' at the Project Imaginat10n Film Festival. Each winner will also receive $5,000. Together, the 10 films will be part of "A Ron Howard Presentation."
While you consider the photos that will inspire your film, keep a few things in mind:
- Films will be judged on the extent to which they were inspired by 10 of the winning photos, the extent to which the film is imaginative, overall technical quality, originality and overall impression.
- You must be at least 16 years old and be a legal resident of one of the fifty United States or D.C. to enter.
- The person submitting the film must be the director.
- Films must be 1 to 10 minutes in length (including no more than 2 minutes of credits).
- You must obtain all releases and clearances that are necessary for the production and use of the film, including from all contributors, actors and musicians.
- You must obtain a license for any component of the film that is not owned by you (artwork, logos, music, other video, etc.)
Film submissions open in June, however, you can start choosing the 10 photos that inspire you most and begin your filmic journey. Stay tuned for details and good luck to all.
Long Live Imagination.
