For those of you not in the know, Star Wars Uncut is a project started by Vimeo developer Casey Pugh to create a collective fan made version Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. Through the project’s website, Pugh got creative fans to recreate 15 second clips of classic sci fi film, and let fans vote to decide which ones would make the final cut (sound familiar?). Now the project is complete, and Pugh and the gang are just dealing with legal issues before they can release it. See the trailer and a scene from the edited film after the break.
“The Escape” Scene:
You can actually watch the entire fan film here, though it’s formatted as a series of clips until they are allowed to show it as one complete video.
