Apparently, it’s Star Wars day… or we’ve become The Movie Blog. Either way, I’m sorry.
Nevertheless! There’s a fun project running on the content site Vimeo called Star Wars Uncut. It’s a fan-video compendium that takes the original Star Wars (I will not call it Episode IV: A New Hope– nyah!), chops its 121 minutes into 15-second segments. Fans then pick a segment, film it on their own and upload it. When it’s all said and done, you’ve got 121 minutes of :15 clips that combine to make the movie as a whole. Sounds confusing and exhausting, but it’s kind of a clever– like a visual version of the campfire “build on the story” game.
The result? Cheesily outstanding.
The official trailer (and my favorite recreation) is below, or you can view all of them (after registering for a Vimeo account– which you should have anyway) right here.
