Star Wars Uncut is a crowdsourced remake
Hundreds and thousands of Star Wars fans collectively contributing to create the film Star Wars: A New Hope. The clips have been online at starwarsuncut.com for a couple of years now but they’ve recently been compiled and stiched together to form one single, awesome movie.
The crowdsourced remake runs for 2 hours and 3 minutes and was uploaded on YouTube last week, getting over 1 million views in the first 3 days.
Check out the full video below.
In 2009, Casey Pugh asked thousands of Internet users to remake “Star Wars: A New Hope” into a fan film, 15 seconds at a time. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted. Within just a few months SWU grew into a wild success. The creativity that poured into the project was unimaginable.
The project involves cutting up the original movie into 15 second clips. Users can then pick any of the 15-seconder and re-film it any way they way. Once all the clips were made, they are collected and stitched back together for the remake.
I must say, this uncut version is freakingly awesome.
