Star Wars might never be the same with creative minds like Patrick Boivin combining animation and real life in AT-AT Day Afternoon.
Having watched the original (unaltered) trilogy and now trying to process the Lucas disaster known as Episode I-III, the Star Wars fever finally caught up with me and I’m pretty excited about the newest movie (maybe because Lucas doesn’t direct or because J.J. Abrams is a good choice to revive/continue the franchise). Taking things too seriously might hurt in the long run, so why not give independent filmmakers a chance?
On his YouTube channel, French Canadian autodidact filmmaker Patrick Boivin shows that it’s possible to make even the most frightening killing machine of the Empire, the AT-AT (feared on both the ice planet Hoth and the woody Endor), quite adorable when presented as a pet. The film is not only very well made with astonishing animation, but also touching and a bit sick (just wait until the Jabba the Hut scene), something only the best of short films can achieve.
