I’m thrilled to release “The Escape,” a teaser from the finished Star Wars Uncut: A New Hope movie.

Hundreds of 15 second scenes were put back together in a finished film thanks to the work of several people:

Jamie Wilkinson, manager of video engineering, Bryan Pugh, sound editing master, and Aaron Valdez, video editor and general creative boon for the Uncut team.

We’ll be screening the entire Star Wars Uncut: A New Hope in Copenhagen at CPH:PIX Festival April 19 and have several screenings in NYC in the works.

Check back for the completely redesigned StarWarsUncut.com coming soon!

The argument that televisions are “an extremely competitive, commoditized market with very slim margins and most purchasing decisions going to whoever has the most features” sounds exactly like the PC market 15 years ago.
