New Version of Star Wars Released – This One is Made of Paper
In this modern age of computers and George Lucas destroying the things we love, it feels like hardly a week goes by without me complaining about the Star Wars franchise in some form or another. This week, I can put all of that aside, because there is a wonderful new video making its way around the Interwebs. It seems paper movie maker extraordinaire Eric Power has teamed up with nerdy musician Jeremy Messersmith to produce the music video for Messersmith’s song, “Tatooine.” The video tells the (heavily cut) story of the original Star Wars trilogy, and is done entirely in stop motion using paper. The song is really good and has served to put me in a great mood for the rest of the day. Check it out after the break.
“Tatooine” is available as a pay-what-you-will download on Messersmith’s site.
