For a few weeks I've been noodling with a some ideas after watching both the Star Wars Saga and Season 4 of TCW on Blu-Ray. The behind the scenes material is outstanding, especially when you have a chance to peak into the Lucasfilm creative process. Specifically in regard to TCW, I still have a number of friends and family that just can't get past the animated nature of the series, regardless of the quality storytelling and visual effects. With a fifth season underway I thought to myself, how hard would it be to cut the first four seasons into a two 100 minute movies? You wouldn't get all the gritty details, but you could still tell a heck of a story, right? Now rewind to C6. There hasn't been a shortage of impressive cosplay photo galleries floating around the web, which not only showcases the incredible costuming talent of the Star Wars fan community, but also the passion for bringing Star Wars to life. There are a number of convincing "doubles" for the PT as well, like Anakin, Ahsoka, Count Dooku and many more. Then it hit me! After recutting the two 100 minute movies, the sound, dialogue, story and everything needed for a script is already complete. It would be a matter of visually recreating a shot-for-shot remake of these 100 minute movies, telling a live action version of the Clone Wars using our very own talented fan community of "doubles." Consider, our actors are lip-synching on location or in front of a green screen, and with the help of some VFX artists, we could have a decent live action story with half the work. OK, I don't want to marginalize the immense effort this would take, but where there's a will (and maybe a Kickstarter budget) there's a way. I'd be willing to Executive Produce, lend a creative hand with model building, and fund the venture as best I can. I have a vision to make these films closer to the style of the OT by integrating actual models/sets and similar OT lighting techniques. Moreover, I'm floating the concept here, as this is as good a start as any. It certainly wouldn't get very far off the ground without the support of this community, and perhaps a few talented individuals may be willing to jump on board and give us some momentum. If that is the case, then we just may have a fan film project worthy of Kickstarter. Thoughts?
