Star Wars Uncut: Crowdsourced Fan Remake
Star Wars Uncut is a decentralized collective remake of the George Lucas classic. The movie was divided into 427 fifteen-second chunks, which participants (i.e. anybody who wanted to get involved) can record to video in any manner they choose. Some are using action figures, some are acting out microscenes themselves. Since it's an effects-driven space opera, the approximations are really creative.
All of the clips have already been claimed but the site's creators are working on a way to get the rest of us to get involved somehow.
Using the social video site Vimeo, people can sign up to download one of 472 15-second chunks of Star Wars: A New Hope and re-film it however they choose. Once complete, all 472 Vimeo clips will be stitched together in sequence to re-create the entire film. The results are already rolling in, and they're awesome.
Just imagine being able to watch Star Wars a completely different way every you time you watch it. I can’t wait.
Gotta be better than the official rereleases. Han shot first.
