Live-Action 'Toy Story' Remake Uses Strings and Stop Motion to Make Movie Magic (Video)
A team of indie filmmakers took two years to create a shot-for-shot reenactment of the Pixar classic, using real toys and puppetry.
Art mirrors life, life mirrors art, and sometimes, it gets all jumbled up and rules are broken.
Behold the live-action version of Toy Story, a shot-for-shot remake of the animated Pixar classic using the real versions of the toys -- Woody the Cowboy, Ham the piggy bank, Mr. Potato Head, among others -- that were computer-rendered in the 1995 Oscar-winning film.
A full two hours, the remake, directed by Jonason Pauley and Jesse Perrotta, utilizes marionette puppetry and stop motion to move the characters, and uses the audio tracks from the original so that all the toys have the authentic voices. It's an extremely advanced form of “playing” with toys -- according to the film's Facebook page, it took two years to complete.
It has been released to YouTube for free, a crown jewel in the fan-made tribute video community.
