    Filmumentary

    The concept of a filmumentary is to intermix a documentary, commentary, alternate takes, extra footage, etc, right inline with the film itself. This is essentially taking the "audio commentary" one step further, by interrupting the movie to show clips and such.

    I recently saw Star Wars Begins, and it inspired me to give TRON a similar treatment. I think that there's enough material to do this, but I think that the biggest hurdles will be acquiring the hard-to-find materials, and keeping track of everything.

    NOTE: I still need a catchy name for this project.
