Last year, we posted an incredibly new and fresh internet sensation. Instead of your web standards like supercuts and mash-ups, a new team of people aspired to create something completely different. The end result was a collaborative project spanning the entire world. It’s was called Star Wars Uncut - a feature-length, crowd-sourced remake of A New Hope. It was an incredible feat that is being repeated with over 1500 participants whom are re-teaming for a remake of Empire Strikes Back.
Star Wars Uncut is a crazy fan mashup remake of the original Star Wars movies. It is the brainchild of Casey Pugh, a developer dedicated to creating interactive experiences on the web. In 2009, Casey was inspired to use the Internet and an ever-ready pool of passionate Star Wars fans to crowdsource the classic film Star Wars IV: A New Hope. This pet project turned into a labor of love and creativity on a large scale. Nearly a thousand fans came together to participate and the resulting movie is equal parts fun, kooky, and dearly nostalgic. (StarWarsUncut.com)
