If you’re a die hard Star Wars fan, then you’ve probably heard of- or possibly even participated in- the 2010 Emmy winning crowdsourced project Star Wars Uncut:A New Hope. Created by Casey Pugh, who also created the Vimeo player that we love so dearly, Star Wars Uncut is a collective remake of Star Wars IV: A New Hope by over thousands of fans from more than 30 countries. Casey Pugh divided the movie into 15 second clips and allowed fans to reserve a scene to re-enact. The project went viral and within a month all of the scenes were taken and once submitted, it was time for Bryan Pugh and Aaron Valdez to stitch it all together.[see_also]
Less than a week ago @starwarsuncut announced on Twitter that they have received a submission for every scene of their latest project Empire Uncut but there is still time to participate. LucasFilms even congratulated them for the project. Watch some of my favorite clips below and the director’s cut of the original, then head over to their website to see more. Follow them on Twitter to find out when the latest project will be released.
