Tim Burton’s Cadavre Exquis: A Social Media Storytelling Adventure
Join the esteemed director - and the Twitterverse - in telling the tale of Stainboy.
Tim Burton’s ‘Cadavre Exquis’ invites all to join in a storytelling adventure involving Burton’s ‘Stainboy’, contributing a line of their own based on the last storied Tweet. According to the website,
Cadavre Exquis or “Exquisite Corpse” is a technique used to collectively tell a story. Each contributor adds to the story in sequence, building on the last line revealed.
The experiment runs from November 22nd through December 6th, 2010 – and is meant to generate excitement for the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) – which will honor Burton’s work by running Tim Burton, the first MoMA exhibition to be presented in Toronto in over 20 years. Contributors are invited to Tweet as often as they’d like; the best Tweets of each day will be selected to build the story. The story can be followed as it unfolds on the project’s website.
