Paper Star Wars

Any true Star Wars fan will appreciate this reenactment featuring paper-made characters by Eric Powers.  Jeremy Messersmith's song "Tatooine" is a fitting score for this brief version of the legendary tale. At about 2 and 1/2 minutes, it's cohesion with the film in pace and feel are admirable.

I couldn't help but think, this is multi-modal literary construction in the "flesh."  I can imagine this as half of a presentation, the other half being the written component that explains and connects the Star Wars story to the presentation. The film garners its full credit in my assessment; I appreciate and applaud the ingenuity of paper repurposed as physical objects, music that bleeds emotion, succinct lyrics that wrench multiple meanings from metaphor.  My favorite moment: "Solos are fine but duets are romantic."  Watch it and enjoy the wit of this line for yourself.
