Raiders Famous Opening Done in Glorious Stop-Motion

Animator Jeff Gurwood remade the opening six minutes of Raiders of the Lost Ark, including the famous boulder escape scene, entirely in stop motion.

His video, “Indymation,” was a six-month labor of love created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Raiders. The stars are Hasbro action figures, and the sets were built entirely from art supplies. I can’t even fathom how long it took him to build this miniature sets. The details are exquisite. [via reddit]
