A filmmaker can find inspiration for a film in many ways. For Ron Howard, eight photographs taken by Canon camera owners brought him inspiration for When You Find Me.

Project Imagin8tion is the first photo contest to inspire a Hollywood short film. Eight photos were chosen by Ron Howard to set the stage for his production When You Find Me.

Below you can watch an introduction to the project followed by the film (produced by Ron and directed by his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard)!

Canon users inspired the screenplay, and now you can let the screenplay inspire you. Ron invites you to interpret 8 script excerpts with your photographs. See submissions from fellow photographers over on YouTube.
