Brilliant mashup of Troll Hunter and The Empire Strikes Back, created by visual effects artist Rune Spaans who worked on Troll Hunter.
One of the creatures in The Troll Hunter is missing an arm. When I first saw that, I knew I had to make this Empire tribute! What I’ve done is to take the scene from Empire Strikes Back, erase the existing characters, and then animate and re-composite the characters from Troll Hunter into the Empire footage. It’s a pretty complex animation job, and it took me around three weeks of spare time to finish.
Troll Hunter is set to be released in the UK on 9th September 2011.
