Dual of the Dyad
Filmmaker and Star Wars fan Mason Drumm used stop-motion animation to recreate the pivotal lightsaber battle between Rey and Kylo Ren in The Rise of Skywalker. The 2 minute film includes some really great tricks, including confetti water splashes, and a rippling water machine. Behind the scenes story here.

It’s been about two months of work just to get to the animation part of production. Building sets, an automaton, costumes, animatics, storyboards and special puppet rigs is what it takes to bring this to life. After animation wraps, I get to experience the joy that is stop-motion post-production. Follow the progress in my story and check out the highlight (Ep. 9) to see how it’s all evolved. Aiming to upload by mid February! #starwars #stopmotion #episode9 @stickybones.pose
