Last month I shared how Dell was bringing you the opportunity to play a part in creating a new movie from Academy Award Winner Robert Stomberg, starring recent Academy Award Winner J. K. Simmons.
This week the official trailer debuted giving you a preview of the final film:
Many thanks to everyone who submitted creature sketches for possible inclusion in the movie. Thousands were received – more user-generated content than our partner Intel’s two previous “Inside Films” combined.
“We’ve had over 6,000 submissions of art work, which is crazy!” Stromberg told FastCompany. "I just think that’s a much better indicator of engagement than throwing a project into testing. I love how it lets people be an active part of the final product. Any time I can be a part of inspiring others to get in touch with their creative side, only inspires me more as an artist."
The winning drawings are being handpicked by Stromberg; and while the full roster is still being finalized, I was able to snag a couple of the finalists to share with you here:
In addition to Simmons, the movie includes actors Colin Hanks and Catherine O’Hara, and features a soundtrack created by James Newton Howard that is already drawing favorable comments on YouTube where the trailer is posted.
In a more behind-the-scenes role than our Dell Venue 8 7000 has, our Precision M3800 workstation is also being used to make the movie. There’s much work to be done with the winning sketches to make them movie-ready. You can get a glimpse when you see what one of the characters above has now become:
While a few people will be getting a preview at this week’s SXSW Film Festival, everyone can see the first installment of the movie in just a few short weeks. It is premiering March 25th exclusively on Hulu. Find out more at whatlivesinside.com and get ready to be taken to a world beyond your imagination!
