Boston Community Members Recreate Popular Films In Public Art Project


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Local movie lovers have joined forces to recreate some of the most popular films in cinema history.

Crowdsourced Boston is a public art project where members of the community each recreate a scene from a movie. The scenes can be live action, animated, be a remix, use puppetry, or other visual styles. All the scenes are then put together to create a feature-length film.

The project is led by the Brookline Interactive Group.

“You may have sat there as a child and watched ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark,’ and wondering, ‘Hey, I want to be Indiana Jones.’ Well, here’s your chance,” Corbin Ridel, production manager for the Brookline Interactive Group, said. “You get to recreate a scene in a film that you grew up with that you love, and interpret it in a way that you feel is fun, and exciting, and interesting, and loving to that original material.”

Over the years, Crowdsourced Boston has reimagined films including “Cast Away,” “Beetlejuice, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” and “Back to the Future.”
