“That’s no moon.”
Sharpen your lightsabers and punch it to hyperspace. Leia has the stolen plans and Vader has the galaxy’s worst construction project underway for the first time. The greater Brookline-Boston community has remade the classic 1977 space samurai western Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope as the public art project Crowdsourced Boston returns for its 6th year.’
The bad news is there’s no budget. No budget for crew or music. No budget for special effects. The good news is–we have The Force!
On Wednesday, December 7th at 7pm at the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, come watch what our regional community of makers created at the premiere of this year’s Crowdsourced film! Be there in a Star Wars costume and you may win a prize! Our theatre size is limited so please register to attend. Tickets are free to all Crowdsourced creator teams but you must be registered. Consider donating to this awesome community-made art project if you are able!
Crowdsourced Boston is a public art project led by Brookline Interactive Group in Brookline, Massachusetts in which the community collaboratively remakes a famous film. It is shared from the original Crowdsourced Cinema created by Northampton Open Media.  This summer, we will recreate the film “Star Wars: A New Hope.”

Scenes are assigned.
At 5:00 PM on Thursday, May 26th you will be assigned a scene. Once you are assigned a scene, you can begin filming.  Please stick to the total running time of your scene. Going over or under a few seconds is fine, but keep in mind your scene is a small part of a long movie. Make sure the beginning and end of your scene matches up closely to the original so it will transition nicely with the other scenes.
