You laugh as the screen loads… A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away… and instead of a brass section, you only hear Carl from accounting filling up from the water cooler.
Do you love Star Wars, but hate getting fired for watching movies. Do you have an infant asleep, but no headphones. Thanks to Martin Panchaud, you can now experience the entire first Star Wars film in an info-graphic format.
From his about page, he explains what SWAHN (Star Wars A New Hope).net is birthed from:
SWANH.NET is an adaptation of Star Wars Episode IV in a style that was inspired by infographics. One story in one piece of 123 meters length.
It was created with Adobe Illustrator CC in 2016. Its exact measures are:
1024 x 465152 px / 27 x 12307 cm / 10.6 x 4845.3-inch
I first came up with the idea for this project in January 2015 and I started working on it beside my contract works (a selection is featured on MartinPanchaud.ch). All together it took me approximately 1000 hours and I finished it in May 2016.
Star Wars.com did a full length interview with this amazing creator. I highly recommend you take a look at it. In the interview, they asked him what the journey looked like creating this.
At first I never intended to do the whole story. It was clear to me that I wanted to use the original script from 1974 in its first version. As I had made the first scenes I wanted to continue and do just one more, because the next one seemed interesting, too. After three more scenes I knew I had to do the whole story. In all matters concerning documentation and detailed information, I turned to Internet and its users.
