The Star Wars Uncut project is a massive fan collaboration to remake the Star Wars movies. This crowd-sourced project started in 2009 when Star Wars: A New Hope was cut up into segments, lasting only a few seconds each, and divided amongst thousands of fans to remake in anyway they chose, then stitched back together again! This amazingly creative project won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media in 2010.
In 2012 The Empire Strikes Back Uncut was launched. 2 years and 2000 submissions later it is complete and available for your viewing pleasure at starwars.com, starwarsuncut.com and YouTube in the form of a ‘Directors Cut’ where the best scenes are edited together to create a full movie.
I, Amy Letts, created a scene which was accepted and included in Empire Uncut: Directors Cut. I’m really proud to be a part of this amazing project! I made my scene using 2D stop-motion animation with original art in Oil Pastel (backgrounds) and photoshop. I have not done a lot of animating, but it was fun to have a go and I’m happy my scene was used.
