Talented U.K. illustrator Kyle Lambert set out to create a storyboard for a mash-up of Pixar’s mega-hit, animated wonder, Toy Story along with Kubrick’s masterpiece The Shining, calling the result ‘Toy Shining’. Not only does it look amazing but he painted it all with…an iPad. The project took him 2 months and I would say he did an superb job of mashing the two iconic films together.
Here is what Kyle had to say about the project.
Earlier this year I began following Lee Unkrich, the director of Toy Story 3) on Twitter (@leeunkrich). As well as his journey to the Oscars with Toy Story 3, Lee often tweets about his passion for Stanley Kubrick and the movie The Shining which inspired him to pursue a career in film making. Having seen both The Shining and Toy Story 3 for the first time recently myself, I thought it would be cool idea to mash the two movies together as a fun side project.
It started off with a few notes on a post-it describing how the two movies could be combined and quickly grew into a 25 panel storyboard. Once I had sketched each composition I set about painting the panels with my iPad using the Brushes app. The project took around 2 months to complete in my spare time from idea to the finished storyboard.
Coincidently, towards the end of the project I was invited to visit the Pixar Studio for the day by one of their artists Don Shank and thought it would be a great opportunity to deliver a printed version of the project to Lee in person.
Uhhhh… Mr Lambert…this print would look amazing at the blurppy offices….
