my friend, Vincenzo, is on a quest to find out what inspires artists from all over. he's made a video for the The Olympus Pen Proposal. here's a snippet of what the project is all about:
"Olympus wants to know: What you would do if you had the amazing new Olympus PEN® E-PL1 portable camera featuring professional digital single lens reflex (DSLR) image quality, point-and-shoot simplicity and high-definition (HD) video, along with $5,000 to bring your creative vision to life? The PEN your story challenge starts right now, so it's time to find out.
Your "vision" can be anything that you could produce with the high-quality PEN and $5,000 budget. Whether your dream is to direct a short film with HD video, produce a fashion spread of pro-quality still images, chronicle an adventure or to create an amazing photomontage, you can submit your video proposal to www.youtube.com/getolympus and enter to win the PEN, the funds to make your project reality and a crack at the grand prize."watch his video and vote 'Like' on Youtube.
i think it's such a powerful video. honestly, i got choked up a bit after watching it because i felt like he and i share the same drive and passion for photography! this project is a great idea (and right up my alley mind you! i would love to do something like this!) and i wish him the very best of luck! please watch the video and vote vote vote! there's only two days left!
GOOD LUCK, VINCENZO!
