How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
In 2009, Casey Pugh asked thousands of Internet users to remake “Star Wars: A New Hope” into a fan film, 15 seconds at a time. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted. Within just a few months SWU grew into a wild success. The creativity that poured into the project was unimaginable.
SWU has been featured in documentaries, news features and conferences around the world for its unique appeal. In 2010 we won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media.
Finally, the crowd-sourced project has been stitched together and put online for your streaming pleasure. The “Director’s Cut” is a feature-length film that contains hand-picked scenes from the entire StarWarsUncut.com collection.
We can’t thank everyone enough for making this such a special project.
We even have a theme song by Adam WarRock!

Short remix for the Appropriation Alliance’s Critical Remix Festival. The theme for the festival is War and Oil so I farmed recent Hollywood films related to war in the Middle East along with a few oil films going all the way back to John Wayne’s Hellfighters (careful not to omit Steven Segal’s classic On Deadly Ground). The Prospectors Arrive scene from There Will Be Blood seemed a fitting parallel to the invasion of Iraq.
This is what I meant when I said I was working on a Bruce Willis video. “I’m Bruce Willis” performed by Jeep Cherokee. Produced by Kevin Bewersdorf (2008). Includes just about every Bruce Willis movie with the exception of 13 Blocks, North, Cop Out, and Bandits. I didn’t include cameos or his performances in 4 Rooms or Alpha Dog because there weren’t any clips that worked.
Trailer remix of the John Carpenter 80′s sci-fi film Starman with the Coen Brothers’ 90′s classic The Big Lebowski. I figured Starman would have been way better if the alien had taken the form of the dude, traveling across the country in a beat-to-shit 4-door 1973 Ford Torino, smoking doobies and jamming Creedence, but that’s, like, my opinion man.
Overlayed newsreel footage of Robert Kennedy and images from the classic Hollywood western High Noon blur the line between truth and fiction. Music Composed by Travis Weller. Showed at Big Muddy Film Festival (Best Experimental), Athens Film Festival, Chicago Underground Film Festival, Antimatter Film Festival, LA Freewaves, Ann Arbor Film Festival, New York Underground Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, AFI Fest, and as part of the Black Maria Film Festival Touring Program.
