UM Studios were challenged to recreate 6 famous scenes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, using Disney toys in place of the main characters.  The scenes were to be distributed as cinemagraphs, where only one small piece of the scene would move – adding interest to the picture.


We hired a movie set designer to recreate Star Wars scenes, but with main actors who would be 30cm high. Over a day of shooting, the movie lighting was recreated, and epic visuals mocked up using the tricks and trade secrets of the set designer. The finished cinemagraphs intriguingly similar to the movie scenes, leaving many viewers unsure of whether they were watching the original actor or a toy.
