In 2012 Tom entered a nation-wide photography contest in the United States – Project Imaginat10n. The contest was run by Canon Cameras and overseen by Hollywood director Ron Howard. Out of approximately 100,000 entries his photo was selected as a finalist and eventually hand picked by Twitter founder Biz Stone to serve as inspiration for his big budget short film “Evermore”

Under the tutelage of Ron Howard the film was inspired by 10 winning entries from 10 different photographic themes. His photo was the winner in the category of “The Unknown”. Below you can view the film that was screened at the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts red carpet premier in Manhattan NYC – which Tom attended in late October 2013.

His contribution to the film can be seen at approximately 3:50s. The photo that inspired this scene can be seen here and also a link to the imdb page can be found here
