Casey Pugh and editor Aaron Valdez, with sound designer Bryan Pugh directed this crowdsourced art project recreating George Lucas' Star Wars: Episode IV—A New Hope. They broke down the movie in 15-second segments, inviting fans and artists to recreate scenes in any style they desired.
Here is the background:
In 2009, thousands of Internet users were asked to remake “Star Wars: A New Hope” into a fan film, 15 seconds at a time. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted. Within just a few months SWU grew into a wild success. The creativity that poured into the project was unimaginable.
SWU has been featured in documentaries, news features and conferences around the world for its unique appeal. In 2010 we won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media.
We can't thank everyone enough for making this such a special project.
