A behind-the-scenes clip of the movie Small Soldiers has resurfaced online and it’s pretty bloody cool.
The film’s creators originally used a mixture of bluescreen and CGI as well as puppets to bring the toy characters to life. I bet there’s not many films doing this anymore, eh?
In a blog post by the Stan Winston Studio, which created the puppets, it explains the process of rehearsing and creating a scene using the fully-articulated puppets. The post goes on to say that the puppets were favored by director Joe Dante, as they gave the real-life actors something to play off.
The rare clip shows puppets from the Stan Winston Studio being made to do battle as the Commando Elite soldiers and Gorgonites.
Anyone else really want to go and re-watch this now?
