Jonason and Jesse—two incredibly dedicated and talented maniacs—have created a shot-for-shot live action recreation of Toy Story. They've kept the toys' voices and some of the soundtrack, but Andy and the family are played by real people and all the sets and toys are real. Wowowow!
The creators' updates and notes on their Facebook page go back nearly two years, and it's pretty fun to watch the sequences in the movie improve as they get better at filming them (they're meticulous, and they've posted their outtakes, which are hilarious). They made this on a tight budget, borrowing lots of props, getting help from friends over summer vacation, and finding a dog on Craigslist to play Sid's dog. The remakers posted several videos trying to reach out to Pixar employees, and even traveled to Pixar's studios and handed out DVD copies trying to get attention to find out who can give them permission to share this before posting the full video on YouTube. Let's hope they get an official blessing for this!
