Tuesday Afternoon Diversion: "Star Wars Uncut"

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on Apr 13, 2010 8:00PM

One enterprising group of filmmakers has completed quite a project: remaking Star Wars using 15-second clips that vary by style. The kids put a call out to folks all over interwebz to call dibs on each 15-second scene and then film it; the filmmakers would then stitch together the result into the finished product. In the scene they've posted (below), the transitions are never jarring and their faithfulness to the original film is stunning. In short, we're totally geeked to see this film.
