Jamie Foxx Canon

Jamie Foxx got behind the camera in Brooklyn, NYC last week, to direct his short film for Canon's "Project Imaginat10n."  

I only just learned that the film stars Tyrin Turner (Menace II Society) and Foxx's Django Unchained co-cast member Nichole Galicia

No word still on what exactly this film is about, but, recapping, you'll recall the announcement made last fall that Canon U.S.A.Inc. had aligned with 5 selected directors to direct short films under the watchful eye of producer/director Ron Howard.

The five were/are Jamie Foxx, Eva Longoria, Biz StoneGeorgina Chapman and James Murphy.

The “10” in “Imaginat10n,” represents ten storytelling elements (Discovery, Character, Mood, Goal, Backstory, Setting, Obstacle, Relationship, The Unknown and Time).

91 winning photographs were eventually selected, from which the 5 filmmakers will select 10 each, to direct short films based on them.

And now, consumers (meaning, you folks) can also take part in the same creative experience. Filmmakers of all skill levels can select from the same pool of 91 winning photos to showcase their creativity and storytelling abilities by taking a seat in the director’s chair. 

Submissions will begin on June 4, 2013 at imagination.usa.canon.com.

This is year two of Canon’s “Long Live Imagination” campaign, where consumer-submitted photographs inspire films.

The films directed by Jamie Foxx, Eva Longoria, Biz Stone, Georgina Chapman and James Murphy are being produced on the Canon Cinema EOS System.

Produced by Freestyle Picture Company, all five films will premiere at a special “Project Imaginat10n” Film Festival later this year.

The 91 winners of the photo submission contest span in age from 16 to 67 years-old and are from across the country. Here's the full list (click HERE to learn more)

Within this post are on-set photos of Jamie, his cast and crew.
