Star Wars Uncut: Director's Cut

Star Wars Uncut: Director's Cut was launched a couple of days ago and it is truly an amazing film! 

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.

SWU has been featured in documentaries, news features and conferences around the world for its unique appeal. In 2010 we won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media.

Finally, the crowd-sourced project has been stitched together and put online for your streaming pleasure. The "Director's Cut" is a feature-length film that contains hand-picked scenes from the entire collection. 

This is by far the most innovative film I have seen in awhile. The time this film took to recreate Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope is truly amazing when I think about it. There are some scenes that I love and find hilarious, while there are a few that were not my favorite. Again, when we think of how many countless hours had to be put into this film with 15 second scenes, wow, wow!!

If you have not had the chance to see Star Wars Uncut: Director's Cut, we highly recommend giving it a shot. It is not Star Wars: Episode IV- A New Hope, but being a true Star Wars fan, I can appreciate this a great deal.
