Stop-motion film of the first six-minutes of “Raiders of the Lost Ark”
Youtuber Covert Operatives AKA Jeff Gurwood, has created this impressive stop-motion animation of the first six minutes of “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Each set is hand-built, made mainly from foam core and papier mache, while the characters are the 3 3/4 inch figures made by Hasbro. It took Jeff three months to craft the scenes, and another three months to shoot the animated short.
For a fan-made stop-motion film, this is pretty awesome. Given that the Hasbro figures are especially ugly and poorly articulated, this short is even more impressive. How accurate is it to the actual film? Watch it and find out!
