An extraordinary show of creativity… full-length star wars movie, made by stitching together about 500 x 15 second clips, all made by fans in their own way. Contains some wonderful acting/stop-motion/animation etc

Finally, the crowd-sourced project has been stitched together and put online for your streaming pleasure. The "Director's Cut" is a feature-length film that contains hand-picked scenes from the entire StarWarsUncut.com collection.

Many thanks to Aaron Valdez (video editor – http://www.aaronvaldez.com) and Bryan Pugh (sound design/mixing – http://www.pughtube.com) for the countless hours they put into this masterpiece.

The Story:

In 2009, thousands of Internet users were asked to remake "Star Wars: A New Hope" into a fan film, 15 seconds at a time. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted. Within just a few months SWU grew into a wild success. The creativity that poured into the project was unimaginable.

SWU has been featured in documentaries, news features and conferences around the world for its unique appeal. In 2010 we won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media.

We can't thank everyone enough for making this such a special project.

During a trip to Ishinomaki in November, 2011, we interviewed a number of survivors and let them tell us about how the recovery is going.

Set up by a swiss gov official, caught inside a small compound on top of a hill used for ‘secret stuff’. They’d already impounded my radio controlled helicopter, which was going crazy inside a big cage filled with other impounded children’s toys, mostly disney-character helium balloons. I then was set free, so visited the hotel Kleine Scheidegg where I used to work. Business was not too good, so the way of attracting customers these days was a game of pool – the goal of which was to pot all the balls in pint glasses of beer. Made a mess of the furniture.
