Bruce Springsteen fans are being asked to provide the footage for an upcoming documentary charting the global impact of the rock legend.

Producer Ridley Scott Associates has invited Springsteen fans to submit videos for the documentary Springsteen and I, set for release next year.

It says the experiment, which it calls the "ultimate" collective filmmaking experience, will culminate in a unique feature documentary.

"We are searching for a wide variety of creative interpretations, captured in the most visually exciting way you can thinking of, whether you've been a hardcore Tramp since '73 or have heard one of his songs for the first time today."

Fan videos can be up to five minutes long.

They will only be accepted from today until November 30.

Springsteen recently took a break from touring his latest album Wrecking Ball to support US President Barack Obama in the final days of his re-election campaign.

He is rumoured to be planning a trip to New Zealand, though no dates have been announced.

His last New Zealand show was in 2003 at Western Springs Stadium in Auckland.
