Crowdsourcing is changing a number of industries, which now includes storytelling thanks to this new animated film. Scary Cabin is a Canadian project that introduces a democratic approach to storytelling. The movie is influenced by everyday people, including elements like action, camera and dialogue. Users can impact the story, giving the new animated film an infinite number of endings.

Similar to the drama class exercise where every student provides a word or sentence to tell a story, Scary Cabin gives the audience control over the narrative. Described as an "evergreen story platform," Scary Cabin releases a new episode that consists a mashed up version of user suggestions. The machine-assisted creation also uses intuitive tools to help with the process.
