Google Play and Paramount Pictures want you to tell the next generation what it’s like on Earth in the present. The two media companies are collaborating on a time capsule-style documentary created from fan submissions and inspired by the recent Christopher Nolan film Interstellar.
Google and Paramount understand mankind’s history of storytelling, all the way from cave paintings to modern-day technology. So, according to a release, “the time capsule project asks this generation to take its turn by submitting the memorable and inspiring moments of today to give future generations a way to remember where they came from.”
People from around the world are able to submit their favorite videos, photos, art, poetry, and more to the project, which will be curated by Nolan himself. The final documentary will be produced by award-winning filmmakers David Brodie (Stand Up to Cancer‘s Survivors) and Angus Wall (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network).
The time capsule film is part of a larger initiative between Google Play and Paramount Pictures to give moviegoers a more in-depth, engaging experience with the film Interstellar. Earlier this month, the two media companies hosted a Google Hangout session with YouTubers and the cast of Interstellar, including Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and Jessica Chastain.
