This is a remake of Star Wars: A New Hope, made by many fans in fifteen-second slices. It must have taken a mountain of coordination. The video is full-length; over 2 hours long. Some fans filmed their segments with low-res animation. Some dressed up in costume. Some used action figures or Lego characters. Some dubbed in the original voices; some used their own. Production values shift every few moments. And it's brilliant.

I love what this says about fandom. That we're passionate, creative, goofy, a little obsessive. We're those nerds who say, "This is cool! Isn't this cool? Let's make our own!" We share. We cooperate. And even though we squabble, sometimes we band together and achieve marvels.

Amazing music, voice, and a dozen ways to make music with a guitar.
