Star Wars Uncut: A Fan-made Remake of the Classic
If you're a fan of the original Star Wars, then you'll love Star Wars Uncut: The Director's Cut. No, this isn't a new version from George Lucas. Star Wars Uncut was created by fans around the globe, as part of a massive crowd-sourcing project developed by Casey Pugh.
In 2009, Pugh began the project by cutting the original Star Wars into 15 second clips. Fans could claim a clip and then re-film it any way they wanted - live action, animation, or even puppets. Pugh then stitched the thousands of submissions back to together into a full-length movie. The first iteration won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media in 2010.
The full version of the film, Star Wars Uncut: Director's Cut, was just released and it is a brilliant remake of the original. The constant switching of scenes is a little frenetic. But if you're a fan, the clever, ironic and often hilarious interpretations of Lucas' characters and script make it well worth while.
