"Alice in Wonderland" director Tim Burton has unveiled a Twitter script project called Cadavre Exquis, or "Exquisite Corpse," which the helmer explains "is a technique used to collectively tell a story."
The social media project, which can be read here on the "Corpse" website, asks Twitter users to build an adventure story about Stainboy, a character who appeared in Burton's book of poems "The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories" as well as a few animated shorts in 2000.
Here's the original tweet:
Stainboy, using his obvious expertise, was called in to investigate mysterious glowing goo on the gallery floor #BurtonStory
It's still unclear what will become of Stainboy's Twitter tale (doubt Johnny Depp has time for this one) but since it is Tim Burton, you can be sure nothing goes to waste.
Burton's Cadavre Exquis project runs from November 22nd thru December 6th.
