Animating the AT-ATs

(YouTube link)

Award-winning special effects artist Dennis Muren tells us how Industrial Light & Magic made the Imperial Walkers in The Empire Strikes Back actually walk, while we see a time-lapse video of the work. They used stop-motion animation, which means a day of work like this would yield about five seconds of usable footage for the Battle of Hoth. You can see the finished scene here. -via Laughing Squid
