Sin City’s Robert Rodriguez Turns To Twitter To Crowdsource Ideas For His Latest Film

Director Robert Rodriguez, known for From Dusk till Dawn and Sin City, relied on Twitter as a crowdsourcing mechanism for his new short film, Two Scoops.

To complete the film, Rodriguez challenged his Twitter followers to help cast the “agent” character, suggest a weapon, design a villainous monster and submit photos of themselves to be used as missing people posters.

Mashable picked up one example of a fan’s tweet that was actualized as a major plot point in the film:

 

Said “electrified yo-yo” can be seen in action at the 7:35 mark in the video below.

Two Scoops, a comedic action film starring two ice cream truck workers who battle evil forces, was created as part of the Keep Moving Project with BlackBerry 10.

You can read more of the user suggestions for the film on the BlackBerry website.
