The movie has notched up considerable notoriety online for its innovative use of crowd sourcing for supporting roles, artwork and music. The world-first campaign ran from August 2010 to January 2011 providing scripts and instructions for people to perform and submit to the movie. Winners were found from amongst almost 1000 submissions from 64 countries and appear in the film.
