Fan Remake: Star Wars Uncut
While George Lucas may or may not be preparing to unleash another Star Wars trilogy on us, this time in stereoscopic 3D, some of his most re-creative fans had their work included in a fun Star Wars Uncut trailer out this week.
Launched in July, the project aims to complete a full user-generated version of the original, dubbed Star Wars: A New Hope. This “biggest fan recreation in the universe” was the brainchild of Casey Pugh. To do it he cut the original Star Wars film into 15 second clips and posted them to a website where fans are invited to take up to three of its 472 pieces and remake them.
Pugh found inspiration in the White Glove Tracking project which asked internet users to help isolate Michael Jackson’s white glove in all 10,060 frames of his Motown 25 (and “moonwalk” premiere) performance of Billy Jean. 72 hours later 125,000 gloves had been located.
