This marks an exciting new phase in Project Imaginat10n, the first film festival in history inspired by a user-generated photo contest. A collaborative effort by Ron Howard, acclaimed award-winning director and producer, Bryce Dallas Howard, his versatile and dynamic actress/producer/director daughter, Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions, and the imagination and talent of consumer and celebrity directors, it’s based on a simple profound idea: Using photographer’s shots to inspire creative geniuses to create brilliant, captivating films.
Take Your Imaginat10n To The Next Level
Canon and Ron Howard were overwhelmed with the success and talent submitted to the Project
Imaginat10n Photo Contest and wanted to expand the opportunity to inspire beyond photography.
The Photo Contest invited photographers to submit their photos to ten storytelling themes for
a chance to inspire a film directed by internationally acclaimed celebrities- Eva Longoria,
Jamie Foxx, Georgina Chapman, Biz Stone and James Murphy, all working under the guidance
of Ron Howard.
A total of 91 winning photos were chosen by Canon, Ron Howard and consumer votes. Each
celebrity director has chosen one photo from each theme to serve as inspiration for their films,
currently in production.
To go one step further, Canon is excited to announce the Project Imaginat10n Film Contest
and invites directors of all levels to create and submit films based on the winning photos from
the 10 storytelling themes: Character, Mood, Goal, Backstory, Setting, Obstacle, Relationship,
The Unknown, Time and Discovery. Ron and Bryce Dallas Howard will select 5 winning films
to be packaged with the five celebrity director films as “A Ron Howard Presentation” that will
be showcased at the Project Imaginat10n Film Festival in Fall 2013.
