c77b56b70ac797dbad7126a80e7749bdHere’s some light-hearted fun. Following on from the success of the crowdsourced “Star Wars” movie another group of film fans have put together a crowdsourced version of a film.  This time, it’s a remake of “Robocop”.

The fan version coincides with the big-budget Hollywood reboot of the 1987 science fiction classic.

The story is about a brutally murdered cop who is revived and turned into a cyborg law enforcer known as “RoboCop”.

Interpreting a Classic

The crowdsourced project involved 50 amateur and professional filmmakers from across the United States. The 1 hour 48 minute movie was chopped into 60 individual chunks and the filmmakers could interpret their scenes any way they wanted to.

The entertaining final version is a mixture of styles.  So the viewer will see live action, puppets, cartoons and even some musical approaches.

The organizers of the project stress it’s not a shot-for-shot remake, but a scene-for-scene retelling.

The crowdsourced movie premiered in Los Angeles on January 26th, New York on February 5th and released online a day later.

To watch a trailer of the film, see below.
