Former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy is teaming up with movie mogul Ron Howard to make his directorial debut.
Murphy admits he'll be using Howard as a mentor as he shoots a planned short film for the Apollo 13 director's Canon photography contest.
The thrilled singer and DJ tells, "Now I'll be able to call Ron Howard, which is super weird. This is the beauty of having been in a band that did well enough, I guess. You have access to something as crazy as this."
Jamie Foxx and Eva Longoria will also be jumping behind the camera to make their directorial debuts as part of the Howard-inspired short film festival, sponsored by Canon U.S.A.
The short films will be inspired by a photograph selected from a collection taken by Canon camera users in the past year.
Howard launched the Canon venture last year (11) by inviting photographers of all levels to submit their most imaginative photographs. He selected eight from almost 100,000 and teamed up with his actress daughter Bryce Dallas Howard to create the award-winning short film When You Find Me.
