'Empire Strikes Back Uncut' Gives the Classic Film Charming New Life
If you're not already aware of Star Wars Uncut, allow us to educate you. Star Wars Uncut is a fanmade mash-up remake of the original Star Wars trilogy, beginning with A New Hope. Casey Pugh, a developer dedicated to creating interactive experiences on the web, came up with the idea of crowdsourcing fans to shoot small 15-second clips that would be used to recreate the entirety of the Star Wars films. The first feature-length mash-up was created in 2009 and won an Emmy in 2010 for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media - Fiction. Now it's time for The Empire Strikes Back Uncut. Watch!
