We are all so used to seeing AT-AT Walkers (thats All Terrain Armored Transport Walkers..for those of you born under a rock) trudging slowly over the snow to destroy the Rebel Base on the ice planet Hoth in movie “The Empire Strikes Back”. (Factoid: Hoth is the 6th planet in the Hoth System, not very orginal is it?)
We also know that these things are huge, topping off at around 22 meters from top to bottom with a cargo capacity around 1 metric ton. We also know that they were not very graceful and susceptible to trip over wire and cables.
Having said all of that “AT-AT Day Afternoon” a short film by the self proclaimed “autodidactic” French Canadian artist/film maker Patrick Boivin, really takes everything we know about these mechanical lumbering behemoths and drops it on its ear.(ha) Patrick turned these metal monsters into them into toy sized lovable pets. I can’t say enough how much we enjoyed this here at “The Secret Hideout”, you are just going to have to watch it for yourself! Also, the cameo of Jabba the Hut really gave us a really good laugh. Check out Patrick’s Youtube channel for more very cool video projects.
