Star Wars: Uncut Trailer

Postby sledge » Fri May 21, 2010 11:55 am

A trailer for Star Wars: Uncut, the huge crowdsourced re-imagining of George Lucas’s 1977 sci-fi classic Star Wars: A New Hope, has been released.

The enormous project is the brainchild of one Casey Pugh. He has divided the film up into 2,161 separate 15-second scenes, and asked web users to choose one to shoot.
The fans then have 30 days)sorry now closed) to film the scene, in whatever fashion they like. Stop-motion, live action and computer animation are all on display in the trailer; Mr Pugh says “the more creative, the better”, and suggests flipbooks and animated ASCII art as possibilities.

he trailer is just one minute and 59 seconds long, but is packed with tantalising details. Highlights include a cleverly filmed sunset, which manages to recreate Tatooine’s twin suns, and Darth Vader solemnly telling a grinning toddler that “your powers are weak, old man”.

Honourable mentions go to a computer keyboard that is used as the Death Star’s trench-and-turret-riddled surface, some clever use of Lego, and what appears to be Jabba the Hutt painted on someone’s thumb.
