Crowdsourced Cinema Rules & Guidelines

Official Crowdsourced Boston Site

A “team” can be an individual or a group of people, open to all ages and abilities. Sign-ups for Crowdsourced Boston: Home Alone are on a rolling basis, starting on April 10, 2024.  You do not have to live in Brookline, MA to participate.

Teams will be randomly assigned scenes via email on a rolling basis. We’ll send you the script and clips from the scene you are assigned for reference. Please stick to the total running time of the scene you are assigned. Going over or under a few seconds is fine, but keep in mind your scene is a small part of a long movie. Make sure the beginning and end of your scene match up closely to the original so it will transition nicely with the other scenes.

Be creative! We ask that you follow the script in terms of dialogue and action, but it will be more entertaining the more creative you get. You can shoot live action, use puppets, stop-motion, animation, whatever you think will be entertaining and fun! Check out some of the past Crowdsourced Boston movies to get ideas.

No copyrighted images, logos, or music, please. This includes the original soundtrack or dialog from the movie, please make sure you use your own audio. If you are looking for music or sound effects, check out Community Audio, or or of course, make your own!

We’d prefer everyone to shoot Full HD 1920×1080 with a framerate of 24 frames per second. Shoot, edit, and export in the highest quality possible. Our preferred format is MPEG for files. If you need any guidance with camera or export settings, please get in touch.

ON A ROLLING BASIS – Teams will receive an email from Brookline Interactive Group with their scenes, script, and a movie clip of the original scene from Home Alone for reference.
