This past January, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions and the Official Digital Camera of The Sundance Film Festival, screened "when you find me," produced by two-time Academy Award(R) winner Ron Howard, and directed by his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard.
This short film, is the final product of "Project Imagin8ion," the first user-generated photo contest to inspire a Hollywood film.

After receiving nearly 100,000 submissions, the eight winning photos were chosen by Ron Howard, setting the stage for his next production. The film "when you find me", shot using Canon cameras including the new Cinema EOS System and DSLR cameras and lenses, tells the story of two sisters whose childhood bond is tested by a tragedy they are too young to understand. Alternating between the past and present, the short film is an emotional fable of two people coping with loss in very different ways and what it takes to find peace within yourself and reconciliation with the ones you love.
"'when you find me' is just one example of how the world of storytelling on screen has been drastically changed," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A.
The Canon experience at The Sundance Film Festival was coordinated by Canon U.S.A.'s agency of record, Grey NY and Alliance, the entertainment and lifestyle marketing division.
