Chainsaw is an interactive digital story and the video concluded with Eli and directors Culprit Creative extending a unique invitation to fans: build Chainsaw’s backstory and mythology with YOUR ideas and give your take on what should happen in the feature version. By going to WhoIsChainsaw.com and entering their email addresses fans will unlock the short and be invited to submit their ideas on where Chainsaw came from and where his story should go next.
