    My friend Jim and I thought we would flesh out the "Wampa Attack" sequence from ESB, something we always wanted to see. It was an experiment to see what two guys could do in their own home garages and we wanted to share it with other fans. It was fun to play in ILM's sandbox!...sort of.
    Cheers, Joe Schultz

    A collaboration by Filmmakers/Visual Effects Artists: Joe Schultz and Jim Davidson to create new stop motion footage and edit it into the "The Empire Strikes Back," fleshing out the "Wampa Attack" sequence and matching traditional stop motion animation techniques and esthetics used by ILM in the late 1970's, while taking advantage of digital technology available today.

    Great work man, although I think the shot #3A would make more sense if you mirrored the whole video, because Luke is heading West from the camera's point of view, and when he stops it is from the East. Besides that this is excellent work. Keep it up man. :)
