Amateur Filmmakers Recreate Entire ‘Toy Story’ Movie With Real Toys [Video]
When Toy Story came out in 1995, it revolutionized the entire film industry, as it was the first feature-length computer animated film, breaking tons of boundaries in the process. Now, a fan-made version of the film is just as astonishing, as it utilizes stop-animation, puppeteering, and it real life to recreate the movie, scene for scene.
Jonason Pauley, 19, and Jesse Perrotta, 21, took two years meticulously recreating every single shot of the Pixar film, and they recently released it on YouTube.
In an interview with MailOnline, Mr. Pauley said that the two years he and Mr. Perrotta spent on their project was a labor of love.
“It was just something fun to do,” he said, adding that the two worked on the movie in their free time. “We started by filming on the weekends, all day on Saturdays. Eventually it ended up being, we have to finish because we’re using this person’s time or space.”
“Toy Story,” he added, was his favorite film as a child (and still is). Prior to the project, he had already watched the film “hundreds of times.”
The actors, Mr. Pauley said, were mostly friends or acquaintances from church. “Andy and Sid are brothers to each other, friends of mine from my old church,” he said. “They fit the part closely enough, and they were always anxious to be in one of my films.”
Out of anything out right now, we have dubbed this as the coolest thing currently out on the internet, a prestigious and elusive title that only gets awarded to things that are really mindblowing.
