People keep asking why we keep asking for extras….well as Star Wars nerds, when we saw the fan project Star Wars: Uncut, we couldn’t believe it what we witnessed. They took Episode 4, A New Hope, and chopped it up into 20 second chunks. Then after the fans went and re-shot the scenes however they wanted to, the producers piece it back together. What results is a non-stop laugh-a-thon (first time typing that!) of mostly low budget, hilarious scenes….sometimes live action, sometimes stop-action with Legos and other toys, sometimes drawings, or other things you’ll never expect. The Star Wars mythology is so embedded in our brains that we all have certain scenes, lines, conversations, etc that totally remind us of Star Wars. When we see these scenes done by other people, but following the continuation of the story, it’s makes for a totally fresh and interesting watch.
So at 1pm Thursday, 1/17, we are meeting at the Mount Rose Meadows to shoot the following scene. The one with Princess Leia is already finished, so we are asking people to wear ski/snowboard gear (dressing ridiculous is totally encouraged) to shoot the scene with Rebels getting ready for the Imperial attack on Hoth Rebel Base.
