I love this project - Vimeo developer Casey Pugh cut up Star Wars (the first one, the good one) into 15 second eices and then invited people to remake those 15 second sections precisely. Then the community decides which ones are best and they all get hacked back together in a glorious mash-up.
God knows what the legal discussions have been like - but the end result is just wonderful. Bizarre. Freaky. Disturbing. Cute. Funny. unFunny. Tragic. and Inspired. and so short it doesn;t matter how bad they are...
