‘Gears of War’ gets a re-make.. Behold ‘Toys of War’.
It’s halfway through.. and for some reason its slipped under our radar.. Self-professed to be an amateur, stop motion artist Vincent Tétrault of Québec Canada looks like he’s gonna be first to ever remake a TV Commercial using Stop Motion. And specifically using Stikfas’ Black Ops figures.
Here’s what he thought:
After some researchs on the web about puppets and armature, i discovered the “Stykfas”. A little plastic action figure with balls and sockets joints. These toys are the best for beginners because they work very well, offers great possibility of movements, a good durability and are very cheap. So i bought my first one on ebay, the “Black Ops”.
We just heard that Vincent didn’t get permission to use ‘Mad World’ as seen on the original clip directed by Joseph Kosinski. But he did inform us he’s got a nice composer helping him out with the soundtrack. I’m sure the final work would be nothing less than amazing.
Here’s a short preview on one of the scene. When I first saw it, I thought it was done in Maya. But then realized its all in true stop motion! I’d give it a full score calling it amateur’s work!!
Do visit Vincent’s Blogsphere to check on the updates! This one’s gonna be epic!
And of course check out other Stikfas figures available today!
