Cinematic visionary Tim Burton has turned to Twitter and not film to tell his latest story in the Cadavre Exquis experiment which is part of the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival Bell Lightbox exhibition. The experiment uses Twitter to create a story centered around his long time character Stainboy, Burton started the story with ““Stainboy, using his obvious expertise, was called in to investigate mysterious glowing goo on the gallery floor” and then asks the world at large to write the next part of the story by using hashtag #BurtonStory. The best tweets are chosen every day to become the next part of the story and the process repeats from November 22 – December 6th until the story is finished.
