Star Wars Uncut – The Second Best Star Wars Movie Ever?

Oct 15th, 2009 | By | Category: Citizen Media, Internet TV, Video

The original Star Wars (aka Episode IV: A New Hope) is a classic – cheesy acting and all.

But the crowd-sourced Star Wars Uncut may end up challenging the original for the position of second best Star Wars movie ever.

Organizers cut the original movie into 15-second clips and 473 indie moviemakers are recreating the scenes, low-budget style. From what we’ve seen so far, the clips are hilariously awesome, cheesy acting and all.

Once all the clips are done, they will be stitched together to create a new version of the movie, Star Wars Uncut.

Organizers expect the movie to wrap up in December. Until then, here are a few more samples:

via Carlos Santiago: Shot at 15 fps with a MiniDV camera connected to an ad-hoc Mac-based workflow, LEGOs from all over the house, and stuff from Home Depot. Post work was limited to the sabers (individual frame edits that got old real fast), and a subtle brightening touch-up of the actual death shot.

Made by Noel Estep and Megan Jonas of Phoenix, AZ, USA using a combination of stop motion animation, 3d modeling, vector illustrations, and post work.
