This might be the most creative crowd-sourcing I’ve ever seen. In 2009, Casey Pugh asked Internet users to create a Star Wars fan film, in 15 second segments. Here’s what resulted. Outstanding.
According to the site:
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.
Finally, the crowd-sourced project has been stitched together and put online for your streaming pleasure. The “Director’s Cut” is a feature-length film that contains hand-picked scenes from the entire StarWarsUncut.com collection.
Many thanks to Aaron Valdez (video editor – http://www.aaronvaldez.com) and Bryan Pugh (sound design/mixing – http://www.pughtube.com) for the countless hours they put into this masterpiece.
We can’t thank everyone enough for making this such a special project.
Yes, that’s what I discovered in the Are You a Geek or a Nerd test. Though it says Trekkers are nerds, too, Brian! gs
That means you.
