John D’Amico, one of the best movie writers on the internet, has just dropped an astounding project: Star Wars: The Premake is a shot-for-shot reconstruction of Episode IV: A New Hope, using only footage from movies and TV shows which predate the films 1977 release.

In other words, he’s created a way to watch Star Wars AND all the films which influenced its creation simultaneously. D’Amico has an encyclopedic knowledge of films and their visual reference points and homages, so he’s absolutely the one for the task. You can watch this massive undertaking below, and on Vimeo:
