Star wars uncut is also convergent due to being participatory. Various people acted out a specific scene from star wars, and they were all combined together to make the entire film. The consumers became the producers with their content becoming the film.

Hybrid Media:

These combine computer animation, CGI and various other works, to be put together as a moving image piece. In a style that would be shown as an installation.
