Here’s a rather interesting take on audience participation in film-making…. The filmmakers in charge of new movie, Power of Few starring Christopher Walken, Christian Slater, Q’orianka Kilcher and Jesse Bradford have decided that they want members of the public to edit a scene, in this case scene 64 and use the best edit as part of the movie. I’ve got an official press release below which explains in further detail but in a nutshell, you cut together a scene with pre-short footage, add music from the selection provided and the edit judged to be the best by director, Leone Marucci will end up in the final cut of the film. I’ve also placed a video below which explains in further detail the premise of the project which sounds great to get involved in.

Find out more on their official website.

Upcoming Crime Mystery Stars Christopher Walken, Christian Slater, and Q´orianka Kilcher

(Los Angeles, CA) May 18, 2011 – Director/writer Leone Marucci and star Q’orianka Kilcher (Terrence Malick’s The New World) are inviting online audiences to determine the final cut of their new film, THE POWER OF FEW, with a ground-breaking digital editing contest, ‘Scene 64.’  Using raw film footage and editing tools on the film’s official website, participants will have the opportunity to cut a scene from the film.  One of the favorites, as voted by fans, will be used in the finished film and the winner will receive a screen credit.

‘Scene 64’ features Kilcher and co-star Jesse Bradford (Bring It On, Flags of Our Fathers), in an action sequence shot on location in New Orleans. The pair co-star with an ensemble cast including Christopher Walken (Catch Me If You Can, Wedding Crashers) and Christian Slater (True Romance, Very Bad Things) in the crime mystery.  THE POWER OF FEW revolves around an enigmatic smuggling ring’s efforts to steal a priceless artifact.  The story unfolds through the unique perspective of five characters who cross paths on a day filled with danger, hope and possible transformation.

Marucci and Kilcher are continuing the exploration of perspectives by welcoming users to the film’s official site where they can download pages of Maurcci’s script; access a video library containing all footage shot on location; and edit the scene as they envision it.   Entrants will also have access to audio tracks from the film’s score by Grammy-winning Mike Simpson, whose composing credits include the film soundtracks of Fight Club and Zoolander and acclaimed work as co-writer/producer on the Beastie Boys’ “Paul’s Boutique” album.

First-time producer and star Q’orianka Kilcher commented, “We’re doing something that’s never been done before:  we’re creating a direct connection between a passionate global audience and Hollywood, with an Internet connection being the only requirement.  I love the idea of empowering people from around the world with this direct involvement.”
