MUST WATCH: “When Lynch Met Lucas”

A few months back, we brought you a very interesting interview with David Lynch (MULHOLLAND DR.), in which the eccentric director told of a time long ago in a galaxy far, far away when he met with George Lucas to discuss possibly helming RETURN OF THE JEDI. Turns out, Lynch had “next door to zero interest” but, even still, just the possibilities of a Lynchian STAR WARS were fascinating.

So fascinating in fact that the story inspired animator Sascha Ciezata to put together this beautiful mixed media, DIY-style short using Lynch's audio from the original interview. And, believe it or not, it was shot entirely on an iPhone 3G using an app called iMotion. Always a connoisseur of experimenting, Mr. Lynch would be proud. In fact, I can certainley say that he is proud as, upon seeing "When Lynch met Lucas," the man himself contacted the animator to do more short animated films for his official web-site (DAVIDLYNCH.COM).

Sascha was kind enough to personally email us the link to the film and we are happy to share it with you now. Check it out after the jump!
