The global project to recreate the original Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope in 15-second user-submitted segments has been uploaded and released for free viewing.
The individual scenes have been made available and live to view for quite a while; but the massive undertaking of curating all of these into 473 components of a greater whole has finally been completed, resulting in the 'Director's Cut.' We have to admit, it's fantastic. The oxymoronic nature of flicking between everything from professional live-action footage, Microsoft Paint animations, machinima and action figure renditions. The fascinatingly creative interpretations of key scenes in the movie, like representing the lightsaber fight between Vader and Obi-Wan as the chess scene from Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal, or the speeding up of curtains closing to create a 'handmade' rendition of the blast doors. It's amazing, and you have to see it below.
