Seeing Buzz, Woody, and the rest of the gang in stop-motion is so charming! It really does feel as if you're watching what the movie would be like in real life.
"As soon as we saw Toy Story 3, it became our favorite film, and will forever be," Mason McGrew told BuzzFeed. "We’d always been [such] huge fans of Pixar and the Toy Story franchise that we eventually decided we wanted to pay tribute to the studio and film that we love so much."
He continued: "Overall, the hardest thing about this film was staying disciplined. It was very important to us that we finish what we began as kids."
Morgan, now 23, recently graduated from Buena Vista University with a degree in digital media/business, and Mason, 21, is finishing up his final semester at the same school, pursuing the same degree. The two hope to continue working with stop-motion animation.
