Having conquered the music world with LCD Soundsystem, James Murphy is free to aim his inner mogul at pretty much whatever he wants. This time, it’s film. In conjunction with Canon’s Project Imaginat1on, Murphy will be directing a short film based on a series of still photos uploaded by users like me and you. “It’s pretty funny and very strange– I’m weirded out and flattered at the same time. A lot of things aligned,” Murphy told Pitchfork. “The cool thing is that I don’t have to do the existential task of asking myself, like, ‘What am I going to direct?’ It’s based on a bunch of pictures, like 10, that people send in. I get to pick them from a narrowed-down list.” Which certainly leaves a lot of latitude for what he might be tasked with directing; the easy route is to send in a bunch of black & white Instagrams of people partying so that Murphy might render them into some sad, strange adventure not unlike what he frequently sang about with LCD, but those photo-snapping users should up the ante and go with something expected, like a day in the life of a zoo-dwelling tiger or something to do with Chinatown’s fish market. I mean, go wild; the end result might be kind of awesome! Other directors in the Canon project will include Eva Longoria, Jamie Foxx and Georgina Chapman, all of whom will be mentored by Ron Howard. (Like I said, it might be kind of awesome.) They’re scheduled to come out sometime next year.
