Indiana Jones – Raiders of the Lost Ark 30th Anniversary Stop Animation Short [Video]

Jeff Gurwood wanted to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Indiana Jones and Raiders of the Lost Ark, so what better way was there to do that than by making an awesome stop animation movie short. Using action figures from Hasbro and sets that he built himself, Jeff has done an painstakingly incredible job of recreating the thrilling opening sequence from the film.
