Canon EOS 5D Mark II and another robot: “AT-AT day afternoon”

by planetmitch8 Comments

“Star Wars” filmed with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews)? Well, not really, but one of the robotic “At-At” toys from the “Star Wars” movies has been used to make a very interesting short movie – and we've got the behind the scenes (BTS) to show you how it was done. It always fascinates me when people get creative and are willing to spend time to make something fun like this for everyone to see – especially when they share how it was done.

There's also an interview that we found with the “AT-AT day afternoon” creator Patrick Boivin over on CNET UK.

And for those of you who may not understand the title, there was a movie here in the USA called “Dog Day Afternoon” – and so with the robot from Star Wars being called an “At-At”, and it being used as a dog… get it?

When I was a kid, there are two things I wanted badly and never got… A real dog and a Kenner AT-AT Walker.

If you wanna know why I used a “pink screen”, the reason is that I didn't have a green fabric large enough for the toy.

  3. Can you say me how he gets this look in the video? I mean, it is an other look than the BTS. Maybe it depends on the FPS?
