AT-AT Day Afternoon

Were you ever denied something that you really, really wanted when you were a kid?  Patrick Boivin was denied two things that his heart desired - a dog and a toy Star Wars AT-AT.

Instead of undergoing several years of expensive pyschotherapy he instead adopted (as an adult) animation as a way to assuage those childhood longings - and possibly get back at his parents!

The result is fantastic.  Going the physical puppet route rather than CGI was an excellent idea - this gives the AT-AT pooch much more life than it would have.  

So, this is for all of you who had your childhood longings and desires (for possessions and pets) denied by those terrible people known as parents.
