Star Wars Uncut: Director's Cut
Back in July of 2009, Casey Pugh ("a [then 25 year old] developer dedicated to creating interactive experiences on the web") put out the call on the internet to remake the 1977 classic “Star Wars: A New Hope” as a fan film, made up of user generated clips of 15 seconds each. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted.
As reported in the Aug. 27th, 2010 NY Times, StarWarsUncut.com went on to win a 2010 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media - Fiction.
In addition to honoring Casey Pugh, credit must go to Aaron Valdez (video editor - aaronvaldez.com) and Bryan Pugh (sound design/mixing - bryanpugh.me) for their selfless work assembling this masterpiece of crowdsourced cinema.
