Joseph Gordon-Levitt is launching an interesting project on hitRecord.org in conjunction with Christopher Nolan‘s Inception. I just recieved an e-mail asking /Film readers to be a part of it. You can read more about the project, direct for Joe, after the jump.
INCEPTION is coming out soon, and in conjunction with its release, they’re making a documentary on dreams. When I was asked to participate, I suggested that hitRECord contribute to the project. This is gonna be fucking awesome.
The documentarian directing it is a guy named Roko Belic. He and I recently sat down to discuss how we can best throw our flavor into the mix.
Largely, it seems he’s looking for dreamy visuals for cutaways. He mentioned five archetypal dreams and asked us to create visual/graphic/animated/cinematic interpretations.
1. Inappropriate Dress
2. Teeth Falling Out
4. Being Chased
If you want to shoot a whole short film out of any of these dreams, that’s great. But it’s also great to contribute your brick in the larger wall. Draw a picture, take a photo, animate a moment.
Also, Roko hasn’t chosen any music yet, so the more dreamy sounding stuff we can throw his way, the more likely our tunes can make up this doc’s score.
Also also, even if you don’t make any videos, images or music, you can still really help by browsing through the RECords we’ve already got on our site and finding stuff you think might work for this project. Find dreamy, surreal, beautiful visuals — still images are good, but video is even better. Find dreamy music or soundscapes. Compile an Album of the RECords you find, and contribute that album to the Collaboration.
I’m so grateful and happy to be a part of Inception — I think you guys are really gonna love the movie. And I can’t wait to see what we all make together.
Sleep to dream…
