Sometimes the internet is amazing. Here’s the entire Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope movie re-created in 15 second clips by thousands of people in different styles. This “Director’s Cut” version contains scenes handpicked from all of the entries. It’s surprisingly pretty awesome.
Star Wars Uncut is the brainchild of Casey Pugh, a developer dedicated to creating new and fun experiences on the web.
Working as a developer at Vimeo, Casey became interested in using the internet as a tool for crowdsourcing user content.
Star Wars was a natural choice to explore the dynamics of community creation on the web – the response from fans has been overwhelming worldwide and the resulting movie is incredibly fun to watch.
Star Wars Uncut has been featured in documentaries, news features and conferences around the world for its unique appeal – we thank everyone for making it such a special project.
StarWarsUncut.com won a 2010 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media – Fiction.
