The opening scenes of Raiders of the Lost Ark is generally regarded as one of the best action sequences ever. Now, animator Jeff Gurwood has painstakingly recreated that sequence as a stop-motion video, using uncannily spot-on sets and Hasbro action figures. There’s a lot to enjoy about the video — my favorite part is when the camera appears to dolly into a close-up on Indy right before he grabs the idol, a shot that I would imagine took about a month to create in stop-motion. And it’s impossible to ever get tired of the traitorous, doomed Alfred Molina doll. Check out the video:
Now, the question is: Will Spielberg himself watch this video and give Gurwood a job, like that dude who made the fake Tintin credits sequence?
