Toy Shining: ‘Toy Story’ Meets ‘The Shining’
Pixar might have a new artist in Kyle Lambert. Lambert recently combined Toy Story and The Shining in a art series he calls, Toy Shining. This hilarious story combines these two movies in a genius way, and the art itself was perfect. Lambert did all of the drawings and art on his ipad. For me, doing that entirely on his Ipad in his spare time is awesome and I would love to see some more mash-ups from him. Here is a quote from Lambert explaining why and how he completed this 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 filmmaking. 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.
Below are the photos of the story in order. I would love to see Pixar pick this up and run with it in maybe a short film or something of that nature. Tell us your thoughts on this amazing creation.
