Earlier this year I began following Lee Unkrich, the director of Toy Story 3) on Twitter (@leeunkrich) As well as his journey to the Oscars with Toy Story 3, Lee often tweets about his passion for Stanley Kubrick and the movie The Shining. Having seen both The Shining and Toy Story 3 for the first time recently myself, I thought it would be cool idea to mash the two movies together as a fun side project.
It started off with a few notes on a post-it describing how the two movies could be combined and quickly grew into a 25 panel storyboard. Once I had settled on the images, I set about painting each panel with my iPad using the Brushes app. The project took around 2 months to complete in my spare time from idea to the finished storyboard.
Coincidently, towards the end of the project I was invited to visit Pixar for the day and thought it would be a great opportunity to deliver a printed version of the project to Lee in person. Unfortunatley he wasn't at the studio that day, but has since recieved the poster, Tweeting
"Toy Story/The Shining mash-up, painted on an iPad. Incredible gift from @kylelambert. So much awesomeness."
Higher quality versions of each panel can be seen below as well as a video detailing the painting process on the iPad.
