The concept behind this is pretty blunt-force but the puppeteering is excellent. I'm not even sure how the three running shots were accomplished. (Probably CG)
I was wondering the exact same thing - is it CG?
It just doesn't look like CGI.
I agree - how did they make the AT AT run?
All of it is a practical marionette with the strings edited out, with the possible exception of those shots I'm talking about. If there's compu-trickery going on, I doubt it's full-bore rendering from scratch, more likely it's manipulation of footage they actually shot. You just couldn't puppetteer the thing that fast, so it's at least sped up.
It's just amazing. I have two of those AT AT's in my home but neither one of them ever does anything worthwhile.
It's the "Kermit rides a bike" trick!
Damnit, I thought he was riding that bike!
he's shooting the squirrels! yes!
