Ron Howard film contest seeking entriesEntries for Canon and Ron Howard's "Project Imaginat10n" film competition are being accepted through July 23. Filmmakers who are at least 16 and are legal U.S. residents are encouraged to enter.
In the competition, filmmakers select one photo each from 10 categories (setting, time, character, mood, back story, relationship, goal, obstacle, the unknown and discovery -- the 10 pillars of storytelling, according to Howard) and use them as inspiration for a short film. One of the photos, "Alli's Dreams" in the goal category, is by Debra Vickers of Charleston.
Films must be between 1 and 10 minutes long. They will be judged on the inspired use of the photos, as well as originality, technical quality and overall impression.
The five winning films will screen this fall alongside five celebrity films in the "Project Imaginat10n" Film Festival and receive $5,000. Celebrity directors are Eva Longoria, Jamie Foxx, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, fashion designer Georgina Chapman and James Murphy of the band LCD Soundsystem.
