Star Wars: Uncut
I just heard about this awesome awesome project called Star Wars: Uncut. I am mesmerized by this concept. They’ve divided Star Wars: A New Hope into 15 second clips and organized them on their website. You go on the site and “claim” an open scene. Then go off on your own and film a reenactment of that scene any way you want. I’ve seen a lot of stop-motion stuff, straight up animation. recreations in backyards. Whatever you want. However you’d like to re-imagine your favorite scene. Once you’re done, you submit it to them and at the end of the project they’ll stitch the whole thing together to create a completely fan-made remake of Star Wars. I find this cool on so many levels that don’t even have to do with Star Wars. The internet allows hundreds of fans from around the world to collaborate on a project without ever speaking to one and other. Check out the site for yourself and watch the trailer below. Incredible. And there are so many other movies they can try this with.
