Be a Part of Robert Rodriguez Next Project
After Neil Gaiman and Alicia Keys, it’s Robert Rodriguez‘s turn to launch his project, named Project Green Screen and ask his fans to help him make it happen.
Rodriguez, who made his debut 20 years ago now, with one of the first truly DIY film, El Mariachi, participates in the Blackberry Keep Moving campaign to help promote their latest phone. For Green Screen Project, he decided to shoot a short movie and leave some sections out so people from everywhere around the world would be able to participate, by submitting their lines, drawings etc depending what is needed.
Watch the overall project’s trailer here:
“Star in the movie, design a weapon, create a cool monster”. These are three of the tasks you will be invited to participate to to help Rodriguez finish “Two Scoops“. The first step, that ends April 3rd, concerns actors:
“First, we need an actor. It doesn’t matter if you’re a trained thespian or a total newcomer. (Most of El Mariachi’s cast had never acted before.)
Watch Robert’s brief below, read the script, learn your lines and shoot your scene. The winning video will be edited into the final cut of the film, so make sure you consider what you’re wearing and where you are, as well as the quality of your video and audio. Add your performance by 5pm GMT on Wednesday 3rd April and with a bit of movie magic Robert’s favourite will be dropped straight into the final film.”
Watch below the section of the film that will integrate the actor’s performance:

It will be interesting to see what comes out of this global project (and how global it ends up being). Blackberry definitely came up with a creative way to introduce their phone, convincing three big names to participate on relatively long projects involving thousands of people.
