2019 Crowdsourced Boston Rules:
Crowdsourced Boston is a public art project led by Brookline Interactive Group in eastern Mass, shared from the original Crowdsourced, created and managed by Northampton Open Media, formerly Northampton Community Television, in which the community collaboratively remakes a famous film. This summer, we will recreate the cult classic “Beetlejuice” in Boston as NOM/NCTV creates their version in western Mass.
Each team is assigned a scene from the film to interpret creatively – it could be filmed with live action, animation, remix, puppetry, and other visual styles. Scenes should contain similar dialog, action, and run time, though there is some wiggle room in those aspects as well. We encourage teams to look at the film with new cultural eyes, which may mean revising swears in the script or rethinking cultural norms. Scenes cannot contain any copyrighted images or audio.
The final film scenes are edited together, color corrected and normalized and we screen the film at Coolidge Corner Theatre in celebration in November! (and with a costume contest for the screening!)
Teams and individuals can sign up now to participate! Scenes will be handed out on a rolling basis until they are gone, but we also have a waiting list on which we will put additional teams in case there is a team that must drop out.
We are also seeking musicians and composers to contribute new music to our remake! Since the original film soundtrack is copyrighted, we will need new music for several scenes.
