Star Wars: The Force Awakens (in LEGO)

Created as an exercise in compositing, for the YouTube superstardom, and because we love Star Wars, this project was a collaboration with animator Zach Macias. We made this video over a year before the film was released, so we had to be creative in recreating the characters and environments without official LEGO sets for The Force Awakens being available. Macias shot the stop motion components, which I composited together from a series of layers and supplemented with CG animation to create the final result. Here’s a comparison with the original, and a breakdown of my visual effects work on the video:
