A few weeks ago, my sister showed me the website for Star Wars Uncut. It is a fan remake of the film created by hundreds of different people. They sign up for a small snippet of the movie on the website and remake the scene however they like. The final movie is cut together from these snippets. The first movie was released a few years ago and even won an Emmy. The second film for The Empire Strikes Back is currently in the works and open to submissions.
My sister told me she already chose a clip and signed us up.
So anyway, you can view our finished product now on the Star Wars Uncut website. It was quite a fun challenge because neither of us are trained in animation and have never done anything like this before. We had to hobble our way through the process, but it was fun and I like how it turned out. Let us know what you think!
As you may or may not know (I personally didn’t, until this video), the gold ribbon represents childhood cancer, just as the more popular pink ribbon represents breast cancer. The goal of this campaign is to further promote the awareness of the gold ribbon and what it represents. More awareness = more attention, more research, and more funding which will help the many children fighting this awful disease. I am very much in favor of beating cancer to a pulp, especially where kids are involved.
So I am fighting my little fight by drawing this pirate. Who loves gold more than pirates? No one. Except maybe dragons. But I wanted to draw a pirate, so you get a pirate video today.
Please like, favorite, and share the video to help the Goin’ Gold cause. They’ve set up a whole YouTube channel of videos from a variety of sources. Check them all out if you have a moment!
