Most marketing campaigns for cameras either focus on the hardware or the random nature shot. With YouTube and other digital platforms creating a new generation of filmmaker, Canon has turned the lens on the kinds of films that can be made with its devices in an effort to stand out from its rivals.
Ron Howard returned this year to back Canon’s “Project Imaginat10n,” the second edition of a contest that had individuals submit photos from which the director and his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard chose a few to have filmmakers adapt into short films.
Five of the films were helmed by thesps Jamie Foxx, Eva Longoria, fashion designer and Marchesa co-founder Georgina Chapman, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and Twitter co-founder Biz Stone — individuals that Canon considers influencers. Another five films were directed by winners of the contest. Howard mentored each during the development and production of the films. »

Season four showrunner Scott Gimple will continue at the leading the zombie troops each week.

One of Glee‘s greatest gifts over the past five seasons has been its ability to convey deep emotions and advance its storylines through its musical numbers.
Who can forget the dissolution of three central romances set to “The Scientist”? Or Kurt’s vigil for his ailing dad, as he sang the Beatles’ “I Want to Hold Your Hand”? And then, of course, there was Rachel’s sectionals triumph, a soaring, seminal moment thanks to Lea Michele’s spectacular “Don’t Rain on My Parade.”

Fans of Hawaii 5-0 know that Chin Ho Kelly is brought to life by Daniel Dae Kim, an actor who used to be a part of the cult series Lost. When Jorge Garcia, another Lost alum, stops by the set for a guest role, you can bet Lost fans will be cheering about the mini-reunion.
The CBS series Hawaii 5-0 is the latest TV property to enlist a visit from Jorge Garcia. The actor was Hugo “Hurley” Reyes on Lost and that fact makes him pretty recognizable when he has a guest role these day. Lost co-creator J.J. Abrams chose Garcia for a principal role on Alcatraz as Dr. Diego Soto. That series fizzled, but Garcia went on to grace the Once Upon a Time set as Anton, the Giant.
