See Incredible Cinematic LEGO 'Star Wars' & 'Indiana Jones' Photos
Right now J.J. Abrams is busy shooting the hell out of Star Wars: Episode VII (some photos of the Millennium Falcon set leaked today), but Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimäki (or Avanaut) took on his own production to pay tribute to a galaxy far, far away along with the true name of adventure. Lehtimäki took some LEGO sets from George Lucas' Star Wars and Indiana Jones feature film franchises and used them to create some truly stunning photography that looks like it could easily be set photos from a stop-motion LEGO movie. These shots are cinematic, professional and simply bad ass. See them below!
Here's some Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi LEGO photos:
And here's some Indiana Jones LEGO photos as well:
Plus, Lehtimäki even took the time to do some clever mash-ups:
Check out even more cool photos at Lehtimäki's Flickr page right here.
Lehtimäki used some cool tricks like baking soda for snow, forced perspective, and some truly fantastic lighting that makes these figures feel alive, and don't even look like toys. There's a great sense of scale that makes them feel like they exist in another world as opposed to just a table. Some Star Wars LEGO characters already popped up in The LEGO Movie, but is it out of the realm of possibility to see a fully animated Star Wars LEGO adventure? We're guessing yes, especially since there's many other films in the Star Wars universe in the works, but until then, these photos are enough to imagine what it would be like.
