Indiana Jones and the Stop-motion Hasbro Footage of Awesome.

So I got sent this via email; and it is worth the six minutes of lifespan that you will spend to watch it.

It is my fervent hope that we go through a retro period where stop-motion is cool again, thus giving some of these people a shot to, you know, get paid for stuff like this.

    That was indeed, very cool.
    The problem with Stop-Motion, and one that is only going to get worse, is that it is expensive and time-comsuming. We may get the odd stop-motion film, but computer animation is the future for now.

  • Rob Crawford says:

    The odd thing is, you could get the stop-motion look with CGI. In fact, that’s actually how it works — they just render more frames between the actual frames they want to use, blur the pictures together, and it doesn’t look like stop-motion. Take out the intermediate frames, and… voila!
    I’d be interested to see if anyone was brave enough to do it, just for the look and feel.

    That was so well done it made me want to watch the original for the ten thousandth time.

    Have you heard of Raiders of the Lost Ark – The Adaptation.

    I haven’t seen it but it is a shot by shot recreation done by some high school kids in the early 90’s.

    Hey wasn’t that AlGore as the indian guide? Cause he like moves in that jerky fashion and likes to rip native peoples off. Just curious.

  • lourae says:

    Right?!? I don’t know enough about this–I’ve been a Wallace & Gromit fan for years–is the combination of stop-motion and CGI what is used on Robot Chicken? (and they did a hilarious bit on the salesman of the security system for the idol–“aww, man–the huge boulder is what makes it, dude! Yeah? Hey, he went for the boulder!!”)
