Loving... Star Wars Uncut: Director's Cut

As a Star Wars fan it is really hard to describe my joy at seeing "Star Wars Uncut". It is wonderful and terrible at the same time... it is so varied and yet it remains surprisingly consistent.

I guess that's why I love it... it has an overall consistency that holds all the different clips together... some that are very well done and some that are simply awful - regardless as to how it is presented... regardless as to how it is interpreted and lived out... the narrative remains the same.

Here's the story:
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.
I love it and recommend you watch it before it's taken down:
