Second Star To The Right

In 2006, my English teacher gave my class extreme freedom with our English Final. We were able to choose any literary work and create a retelling of it, as long as we discussed the original work in class.
I chose Peter Pan.
Creating a retelling isn't difficult, just look at the amount of retellings Little Red Riding Hood inspired. I had to choose a variation on the Peter Pan story theme and after much thought I settled on creating something epic. (I suppose that isn't really settling then)

Of course you must remember that I was stuck with a relatively low cost digital camera that didn't help much in the creation of an epic film. So I did the only creative thing available...took clips from other epic films.

The clips were from movies such as:
-Jurassic Park I, II, and III
-Peter Pan (2003)
-Need For Speed: Tokyo Drift
-The 300 Movie Trailer

Compiling all of these films together with some creative transitioning, I created a totally different film.

Made entirely with Windows Movie Maker,
I present for your enjoyment:
