In 2009, Casey Pugh asked thousands of Internet users 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.
We at Studio 8 thought this was a fantastic idea, so Brock LaBorde, Java Marcheselli, and Eric W. Pierson picked a fun scene, shot it, and sent it in. Two years later, the people in charge of the project picked their favorite scenes and stitched them all together into one continuous re-made Star Wars film…and we just found out that our scene was chosen to be in the final cut!
If you skip to 30:55 in the video, you can see our scene, but I highly recommend just sitting back and watching the whole damn thing.
Thanks so much to the peeps at Star Wars Uncut for creating the project and letting us be a part of the finished product.
