This shot involved the most complex setup I have attempted yet, and I'm still blown away to see how the concept came together. I have no doubt there was probably a better way to tackle ever bit of this shot, but that doesn't stop me from being proud of my results.
How did it all come together? Read on for the details.
I knew from the start that this photo was going to be a challenge. Not just because dealing with tiny LEGO arms is difficult, but also how to do you get fire in a photo without burning down your house. Was it possible? Well, only one way to find out.
Probably the biggest 'feels' from the original teaser - Han and Chewie stepping aboard the Millennium Falcon and uttering the simple, "Chewie... We're home..." line. I think this line sums up how Star Wars fans felt when we got our first glimpse of The Force Awakens. We were all home...
Another scene from the trailer, and another fun image shoot. Rey extending a helping hand to Finn during some (at the time of the trailer) unknown encounter on Jakku. Ahhh... the mysteries and questions this trailer inspired.
I wasn't sure what to title this shot, as there isn't any dialog spoken during this particular moment, so I just went with "...".
This photo represents one of my favorite lines from The Force Awakens trailer. When Kylo Ren vows to continue the work of Star Wars' most infamous villain. It's a powerful introduction to the series latest man in black.
