Seeking help to remake the sci-fi classic "Star Wars: A New Hope," tech-geek Casey Pugh's project uses Vimeo as a crowd-sourcing tool to engage filmmakers in a "Be Kind Rewind"-style DIY production.

He divided up the entire movie into 15-second clips, tasking participants with download three sections for re-filming.

When all 472 clips are complete, Pugh will stitch them back together to create the feature-length movie. We suspect that the end result will be amazingly hilarious.
