YOU’VE probably seen this by now but I love it so much I couldn’t let it go by without putting it up here.
Using a massive range of footage from old films and adventure seriels, Ivan Guerrero – aka whoiseyevan on You Tube – has created this trailer for The Empire Strikes Back, if it were a 1950s sci-fi film, made in amazing 3D.
This is a beautiful piece of work and you can feel the love in every frame. What’s more, if you go through to his You Tube channel, you can see similar creations for Ghostbusters and Indiana Jones to name but two.
