I have to talk about this as I’ve come across it twice now, once over on now in colour, Andy Whitlock’s blog, and once tweeted by Mark Jaklovsky (@EndlessBlue75). Star Wars Uncut is a brilliant, brilliant idea and I wish I thought of it first: remake Star Wars using fan videos. Basically, the guys at Star Wars Uncut have split the entire movie into 15 second clips and anyone can claim up to three of them, upload their fan vid, and they’ll stitch it all together and ‘watch the magic’. So you can make a video clip of any scene from Star Wars, shot any way you fancy: stop motion or live action, as sensibly or in as silly a way as you like. It’s a classic example of collaborative storytelling, utilising the social web to connect people who have never and probably will never meet to create something brilliant. Or funny. Or stupid.
The clip explains it all much better than I can:Vodpod videos no longer available.
