Name: Andy Bechtel From: UNC-Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States About me: I teach editing and writing at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at UNC-Chapel Hill. I'm interested in new ways to tell news stories and in the ethical and political ramifications of word choices (terrorist surveillance program, domestic spying or something in between?).
I have 12 years of experience in newspaper editing, most recently at The News & Observer in Raleigh, N.C.
As much as I love this imaginative "remake" of the opening credits to the original "Star Wars," I couldn't help but notice a misspelled word in the first 12 seconds of the 56-second video.
See whether you can spot the error, which I must stress is a minor flaw in an otherwise brilliant take on Saul Bass. The answer is in the comments.
UPDATE: I just read the full "About This Video" on YouTube. The clip's creator is aware of the error but kept it as is because the video is "just for fun." Fair enough. For some of us, trying to catch the mistake is fun too.
