STAR WARS Fans Show Their Love in STAR WARS UNCUT
Well, I guess we really know why Star Wars creator George Lucas is retiring from big-budget filmmaking now.
In one of the most amazing and surreal tributes to the legendary 1977 science-fiction classic, Star Wars fans across the globe have contributed their own takes on the film, stitched together into a complete two-hour fan recreation called Star Wars Uncut. As the story goes, online producer and director Casey Pugh asked thousands of internet users in 2009 to remake Star Wars into a fan film, just fifteen seconds at a time. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted.
Together with the help of video editor Aaron Valdez and sound designer/mixer Bryan Pugh, Casey Pugh pieced together footage of animation, action figures, people in cardboard masks, assorted children and their toys, people driving their cars, you name it, into a complete scene-by-scene quilt of love from Star Wars fans. The result is truly bizarre at times, but with more heart than all three Star Wars prequel films combined. Enjoy it below until Lucas tells his Legal Stormtroopers to execute Order 66 on YouTube...
