    Just stumbled across this guy's work today on Vimeo, astounding fan/amateur documentary about Star Wars (edited together from multiple sources), there are 3 in total (Star Wars Begins, Building Empire, Returning to Jedi). I've watched the first one so far and can state that it's an astounding piece of fan work - surely this guy cemented his career out of this. I can't believe I wasn't aware of the existence of these docs until now....!

    He has also created similar docs on Jaws and Indiana Jones, available here.

    Good find. :thumbsup2:

    I've watched 2 of them already tonight. I love that the interviews, out-takes, alternative scenes, 'making of' scenes etc. are mostly from THE TIME THEY MADE THE ORIGINAL MOVIES!

    If you click through to the Vimeo site, you can use this site to download them in 720p: SaveVideo

    BTW the trailer for the new Star Wars film, Episode VII: The Force Awakens, is out. The new film is set 30 years after ROTJ & stars Mark Hamill (the last actor to play Luke Skywalker), Harrison 'Never Again' Ford & Carrie Fisher.

    Liking the new trailer, a return to form with a darker look, more like the Star Wars universe that's in my head, and not the 'McHappy Meal' shit-triptych that were the prequels....!
    I'm not sure if the magic can ever be captured tho, not in the same way the original trilogy rocked my world. Having said that, I'll be first in line at the IMAX screening in Siam Paragon this Xmas!!
