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.
