What Auteur Theory?

Guy splits Star Wars into 15-second scenes. Guy invites fellow fans of the galaxy far, far away to recreate scenes. Fans oblige and the result, Star Wars Uncut, is a feature film that'll premiere at CPH:PIX, a fest in Copenhagen.

Film clip and info
here. Not really blown away by the result, but I applaud the idea. I lurve the concept of crowdsourcing. Feel like venting about the hassle I had finding local collaborators for Cowboys in Paradise ("We've done long form for Channel 5 and you haven't.") Instead, I'll just admit I'm envious of guys like Casey Pugh.

On an (un)related note, this has been my phone wallpaper since I started shooting Cowboys. Who's the bigger fan, Casey? Huh? Huh?
