On the occasion of the official release of THE MANDALORIAN on April 7, 2020, on the Disney + video-on-demand platform, we had fun looking for original video creations related to the series, made in motion design or stop motion.
The teaser revisited in stop motion
First, let’s start our quest with this amazing re-enactment of the series’ teaser, made entirely out of Lego. The director here uses the technique of stop motion video capture.
We can only appreciate the care taken in the reconstruction of the iconic plans. The staging of certain models is so stunning that you would almost be mistaken with the original. This trailer assures you of a total immersion in the heart of the galaxy and is sure to send shivers down the spine of some fans.
Boba Fett motion design version
Another very touching project with its immersive universe: this animation produced by a production company near me. Fans will no doubt recognize the reference to Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back, with this staging of Boba Fett carrying Han Solo’s body in his carbonite sarcophagus.
We note here the finesse of the decorations and the detailed design of the characters created in flat design. The artist uses rigging techniques to create the movements, movements and jumps of Boba Fett. It is the result of an extraordinary mastery of the art of motion design!
Figurines… and (giant) lizard!
A third video production holds the attention of our agency just as much. This stops motion film by video companies near me the adventures of the Mandalorian in search of Baby Yoda. He is confronted by stormtroopers… and a lizard!
The artist humorously combines his talents as a director and editor. By literally bringing the Mandalorian figurine to life, he plays on different scales and sizes, and mixes stop motion video capture with special effects.
We quickly get into the game!
Flat design at the service of the mercenary
In a minimalist and refined style, Jess Lindsay offers us a fun and effective version with Mandalorian Stickers.
This series of short animations is also characterized by the fluidity of the movements and the choice of bold colors, in line with the style of the creations in animated videos and motion design of the artist.
In the same vein, we also appreciate Travis Swan ‘s “Mandalorian Chase” project, which depicts the Mandalorian vigorously walking in a stretch of sand, probably the desert of the planet Taooine. The motion designer chose to represent the hero accompanied by the now famous Baby Yoda.
For the anecdote, the little green being has become one of the favorite characters of the series. This new icon of cuteness from the Star Wars universe has flooded social media.
Finally, we end with this adorable graphic animation made by Rob Sayegh Jr, author/illustrator specializing in children’s media. He presents his version of the famous Baby Yoda, emblematic character of this latest opus.
Simple, effective… and so cute!
