Year-In-Review: 2012

I can’t believe 2012 is almost over! I’ve been thinking a lot about how the year has gone, what I’ve accomplished, and where I’m going as 2013 approaches. It’s been a year filled with both failures and successes. I thought a large post in honor of 2012 would be fun and informative, while also helping me map out my goals for the coming year. I might have to make this a tradition (if I even remember to do this next December!).

So here we go…

Star Wars Uncut

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!

Please LIKE Us!

The most popular clips get put into the director’s cut of the finished film, so we’d like as much support as we can get. Please take a moment to like, comment, and share the clip if you enjoy it!

May the force be with you!
