Two months ago, Miramax announced that Robert Rodriguez would take part in Blackberry’s “Keep Moving” project with his own “Project Green Screen.” The “do-it-yourself” filmmaker had an unfinished short at his disposal and called out to fans “to use your creativity and imagination to help complete” the film. Although this reads like a fun experiment in fan collaboration, it also sounds like a bunch of free labor, but what do we know about innovative filmmaking?

Two Scoops

Two months ago, Miramax announced that Robert Rodriguez would take part in Blackberry’s “Keep Moving” project with his own “Project Green Screen.” The “do-it-yourself” filmmaker had an unfinished short at his disposal and called out to fans “to use your creativity and imagination to help complete” the film. Although this reads like a fun experiment in fan collaboration, it also sounds like a bunch of free labor, but what do we know about innovative filmmaking? 

The result is “Two Scoops,” an 11-minute short about two ice cream-slinging, monster-slaying sisters, which comes in handy when a monster captures their father. Rodriguez asked fans to send acting demo reels along with ideas for brainstorming and designing the monster. The film seems like “Violet & Daisy” meets that cut scene from “Dogma” with Rodriguez’s trademark “Mariachi-style.” If that sounds up your alley, check out the completed film, including a few fans and fans’ ideas below, along with a poster. Thoughts?
