Star Wars Uncut - user generated Star Wars film trailer now online!

Today is May 4th - Happy Star Wars day!

Last year I wrote about Star Wars Uncut, a project where Casey Pugh was aiming to remake Star Wars through stitching together four hundred and seventy three 15 second scene clips that were created and submitted by fans.

The Star Wars Uncut official site is here and continues to attract attention across the world as it nears completion. A trailer and a teaser have now been released and details for screenings of the full film are due to be published imminently.

Star Wars Uncut really demonstrates the power of user creativity and the ability of the internet to bring together communities of co-creation. (As far as I know) none of the fans contributing scenes received financial recompense, they did it for love - and the results are fascinating.

Enjoy the Star Wars Uncut clips above and 'May the 4th' be with you!
