Crowdsourcing fans, rejoice: Star Wars Uncut returns

Our friends at Vimeo couldn’t have summed it up better: “Three years ago in a galaxy not so far away, interwebular genius and former Vimeo developer Casey Pugh spoke, and the Internet answered. His call to arms galvanized the most powerful of online hordes: Star Wars nerds, nearly 1,000 of whom came together to create the sublime crowdsourcing triumph that is Star Wars Uncut.”

 

For the unitiated, Star Wars Uncut is a crowdsourced, shot-for-shot recreaction of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Fans were invited to claim and recreate 15-second-scenes from the film, which were then edited together in order. The individual clips are great on their own, but together they form a hilarious, unique and endlessly creative remake.

 

Here at iReport we’re big fans of the project (in fact, I talked about it at a Creative Mornings speech on crowdsourcing this summer), so you can imagine our excitement when we found out that Star Wars Uncut just announced the next chapter of the saga: Empire Strikes Back Uncut.

 

Bravo, guys. We can’t wait to see the final product! You can claim a scene and learn more about the project here. (Hurry: Scenes usually get claimed quickly!) Let us know in the comments if you decide to participate, and share your ideas for other creative/awesome/why-didn’t-we-think-of-that-first projects that we should try out on iReport. May the Force be with you.

 

p.s. Speaking of sci-fi, be sure to check out our before and after photo gallery of iReporters at Dragon*Con. We had a great time meeting everyone this weekend!

Why does the News media let Romney get away with so much stuff?  For instance, all the things he was for ,before he is now against.  He acted like a moderate before he  is now a strict conservative.  He is a Hawk  when it comes to war like all Republicans are; but he got an exemption to keep from going to Vietnam.  Also nothing is ever said about his five sons, why have none of them served?  Even Prince Harry, the third  line from the throne has served.  When it comes to his wife Ann, she suffers with MS.  She has gotten ill on the campaign trail because of stress.  What would happen if she gets  ill in the White House, and he gets distracted from his daily duties?  As President, all of these issues need to be taken in consideration.
