‘star wars uncut‘ is a crowdsourced version of george lucas’s ‘star wars: episode IV – a new hope’.
the project was masterminded by ‘creative technologist’ casey pugh, in collaboration with video editor
aaron valdez and sound designer bryan pugh. in 2009, casey pugh divided the original star wars movie
into 15-second segments and invited fans to recreate the scenes in whatever manner they desired.
just released now, the resulting, full-length film not only showcases the artistic talents of its thousands of co-creators–
with scenes spanning the spectrum of claymation, digital rendering, puppetry, handdrawn animation, and live action–
but also serves as a microcosmic look at pop culture, as many scenes reference in their style or dubbing popular
television shows, movies, and internet memes. lego men, kids, and live cats join star trek characters, family guy -like robots,
sock puppets, and others in the crowdsourced feature.
