Want to be a part of something awesome?

Hi guys,

As many of you know, a while ago I posted this thread: http://365project.org/discuss/general/13530/photography-helping-with-suffering) asking people how photography had helped them with suffering. I got an overwhelming response and since then have started up a project called Escape The Frame which is aiming to improve well being through photography. (for more info, see here: http://www.junction49.co.uk/idea/3080/escape_the_frame/).

I have had an absolutely fantastic response to the project so far with lots of people getting in contact over Twitter and elsewhere. So much so, that I was invited down to London last week for a meeting about a pilot for the UKs first charity crowdfunding platform.

I need to make a video to put on this platform ASAP. So, here's now you can help! At the start and end of the video, I'm hoping to do a sequence containing lots of people of all ages from all countries holding up frames and pulling faces through them. I would be really, really grateful if any of you felt like you could help me out with this and send photos of you/your friends/family doing something like this to escapetheframe@hotmail.com

And of course, if you want to know any more about the project/have an ideas/would like to be involved in any way, I'd really love to hear from you!

Thanks in advance,

My son is great with pulling faces. I wanted to take some shots of him today and he is pulling a face in all of them. If only I had read this earlier I would have given him a frame to do it through. Will try again in a couple of days

@naomi I have one I did the other day.. do you just want the jpeg sooc version or RAW saved as jpeg?
August 26th, 2012
@ozziehoffy Any saved as a jpeg would be brilliant. I plan to just put them together in a sequence at the start and end :) Thank you!

I will try to get one! I had to laugh at myself though ! I am American and we say "making faces in a frame" so at first I was asking myself how one would PULL a face through a frame and why. Hahaha! I love language and how both countries speak English but hie different they can be at times...

Naomi can I just say how brilliant you are - you had an idea, tested it out and did something about it!! I'm so pleased it's going well - I'll try and find a frame and get my mad daughter to pose!
August 26th, 2012
Well done Naomi - so glad to hear your project has grown legs. I'm going off on holiday tomorrow but I will endeavour to try and find a frame whilst I'm away and load something up for you!

@dmortega - did you do loads of frame shots not so long ago that you can help Naomi with??
August 26th, 2012
@sparkle --- Yep, Juliette, I still have them up on flickr.

@naomi --- You are welcome to use any of these for your project only.
Let me know if you choose any. Thanks.

Thanks so much for all of your enthusiasm so far!

@dmortega thank you! I'll take a look, see how many others I can get and will get back to you :)

@sparkle much appreciated :)

@judithg Thank you! Yes it's going really well so far, and great :)

@espyetta haha I never knew about that language difference! I don't want people to literally pull themselves through frames... :p

@abhijit Sounds great :)

I managed to get my cat to pose for me today :') https://twitter.com/ProjectETF/status/240119799039021057/photo/1 and I got my brothers to pose for me yesterday! :)

September 7th, 2012
Thank you everyone who's sent me some! @lesip to escapetheframe@hotmail.com please! I'm putting the video together this afternoon so won't need any more after that :) I really appreciate everyone's help and will keep you updated on the project :)
